Company profile

With more than 1,200 employees and representatives in 38 countries, Gira is among Germany's leading mid-sized electrical companies. It manufactures switches and socket outlets in addition to a wide range of electrical installation systems.

Over 100 years of company history

Gira was founded in 1905 in Wuppertal and initially started with the utilisation of a toggle switch patent. In 1910, Gira relocated to Radevormwald. During the 1930s, the company established itself as a switch supplier of premium-quality products with the well-known lever-bolt rotary switch and has been successfully expanding its product range with new and modern products and solutions ever since.

Gira childcare centre

In keeping with its family-friendly corporate policy, Gira has now reached another milestone. Supported by the Radevormwald town council, the company has constructed a childcare centre on its premises. The centre opened in October 2014. Gira's childcare centre accepts infants and pre-nursery school children from six months up to the age of 3. This means that Gira is now also a place to play.

Awards

Gira develops and manufactures systems and products that set standards in both technology and design. This is also recognised by juries of both national and international competitions: Gira and Gira products have received and are still continuing to receive design awards.
