La Crosse: Brand Guide

About La Crosse

Allan McCormick had a vision that laid the foundation of La Crosse Technology back in 1983. This fire of imagination created history in building multiple companies under one brand umbrella. 

Today’s multinational manufacturer of numerous electronic products like La Crosse weather stations, clocks, mobile systems, thermometers and rain gauges and various kinds of alarm clocks began as a one-person company in a mobile showroom. The mobile brand got popular all across the United States. Even though La Crosse Technologies achieved multitudes of success, their business philosophy remains the same; that is – Serving Their Customers To The Highest Level. 

La Crosse Technology is presently located in La Crosse, Wisconsin, which initiated its story from La Crescent, Minnesota. The brand delivers an extensive range of unsurpassed weather data, stylish accents for offices and homes and atomic time. All the products are easy to use and understand. All of its products, including the La Crosse Technology weather station, are not only available online but in most of the retail stores across North America.
