Leroy-Somer is able to adapt and customise its product ranges, while incorporating the requirements of the specification or the customer’s process (control, self-diagnostics, communication, automation system, monitoring, etc.), the working environment (damp, corrosion, high temperature, potentially explosive atmospheres, etc.), the machine function (materials-handling, pumping, compression, ventilation, etc.), and the type of industry (chemical, automotive, food processing, paper-making, marine, etc.).

Leroy-Somer has developed new technologies for machine cooling, high speed, electromagnetic compatibility, reduction of noise and vibration, surface treatments, mechanical resistance of materials, coating and insulation of windings, all of which constitute an unrivalled range of solutions.
