1st international subsidiary in the USA


MELJAC, a market leader in the field of high-end electrical hardware, has enhanced its growth in the US market with the opening of its first international  subsidiary, MELJAC North America.

Following several years of presence in the USA via an independent distributor, it is now  necessary to build direct relationships with our clients in this market. This new presence will allow , the company to gain greater insight into our clients’projects and optimize our customer service and responsiveness to maximize  the potential afforded by the geographic zone.


“This is a strategic step in the brand’s development. This niche market is currently underserved in the United States and, thanks to this, our very first overseas subsidiary, we will gain greater control of our distribution on the other side of the Atlantic with the hope of using this control to generate real long-term growth and better serve our clients.”

Jean-Michel Lagarde, Chief Executive of MELJAC


“By building on our renowned reputation in Europe, my aim is to transform MELJAC into the market leader in luxury electrical equipment in the United States. I firmly believe that the quality and craftsmanship of Meljac products, combined with our ability to offer bespoke details unique to each project, provide an unmatched opportunity to deliver on the expectations and desires of the country’s design community and end-users.  This potential has led me to invest personally in the project to grow the brand while always preserving and conveying its founding values.”

Jean-Luc Deschaine, Principal of MELJAC North America
