Weidmüller: Our name stands for Service, Competence and Reliability. And that has been the case since 1850. Over 160 years ago, our focus was already on connections, albeit rather different connections: As a textile company we made press studs. Today, we support customers around the world with our products and solutions in the area of Industrial Connectivity. Our international expansion started back in 1959 when we opened a group company in England. Today, we are represented in over 80 countries globally.
