Our history

A word from the President

Our company was founded in 1948 and has a long history of expertise in the field of low voltage micro circuit breakers for over 50 years.

Since 2012, these skills have been extended to the Control, Command and Signalling of the ENTRELEC range.

We listen to our customers’ expectations and strive to provide them with a tailor-made response, adapted to their specific needs. More than a product or a solution, we are building a true partnership.

Our aim is for everyone to contribute to innovative actions and to be a carrier of our values by developing their personal development within the team.

Customers, Partners, Employees, together we will succeed in achieving our goals.
