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.
