The Juno Lighting Story
In the Chicago suburb of Des Plaines, IL, Juno Lighting was founded in 1976 by Robert Fremont. Having previously founded another lighting company, Fremont knew how he wanted his new company to run, and what it would provide: high-end business and residential lighting. It established its reputation with the Trac-Master track lighting system and continued to grow through the acquisition of several other related lighting brands.
Today, as part of Schneider Electric, the Juno Lighting Group is comprised of seven industry leading brands, including Juno, Aculux and Alfa.

The result is sleek, modern lighting that embodies energy efficiency and sustainability without compromising performance.
A Fun Fact About Juno Lighting
Juno Lighting's parent company, Schneider Electric, was founded in Le Creusot region of France in 1836. Their business at that time was steel, mainly for the construction of railroads and shipbuilding. It wasn't until after WWI that Schneider expanded into electricity. When the steel sector began to slip, the company looked to make electricity its sole focus in the 1980s. The company's current name of Schneider Electric was established in May 1999, marking its complete transition to the electrical market.
