In 1942 fishmongers Charles and Frank Purley, fed up with the high cost of ice, developed a refrigeration system to keep their fresh fish chilled. And so Lec was born.
The brand quickly became a firm favourite and today, over 60 years later, Lec is still the refrigeration appliance brand of choice in many UK households. In 2005 Lec became part of Glen Dimplex Home Appliances, owner of Stoves, Belling and New World cooking brands and with a reputation for quality and reliability that is unrivalled. The Lec tradition continues with the support of the largest producer and supplier of kitchen appliances in the UK.
At Lec we have developed a range of products offering style, functionality, choice and, importantly in today’s world, energy efficiency.
By listening to your feedback and drawing on over 60 years of refrigeration experience, we understand what is needed from cooling products and have built our range around your needs. Whether its capacity and durability for the family home, compact designs for smaller properties, or style and elegance for the modern apartment, there’s a Lec product for you.
Our customer care team were voted number one at the Domestic & General 2005, 2006 and 2007 Total Excellence Quality Customer Care awards. Our dedicated and highly knowledgeable team of staff are always on-hand should you need us.
Even with over 60 years of heritage we understand there’s no time to rest on our laurels. Like today’s consumers Lec is an environmentally conscious brand and the future for us is all about energy efficiency.
2010 saw the launch of 11 fantastic new products that really set the standard in energy saving – the A+ energy rated range which uses up to 60% less energy*. Lec have since continued to keep your costs down, and that's why we are proud to announce that our entire range is A+ energy rated.
