Schneider Electric & Clipsal... A Powerful Combination
The powerful combination of the extensive Clipsal product range with the backing of Schneider Electric, provides you with complete electrical solutions for any application.
History of Clipsal - It Began with a Great Idea
The Clipsal brand name first appeared in 1920, when Alfred Gerard developed a range of adjustable, clip-on metal conduit fittings. These products provided Australian electrical contractors with an innovative solution to the long-standing problem of size variations in metal conduits.
An Iconic Brand Was Born
The "Clipsal" name was created from the product’s unique ability… it "clips all sizes" was the claim. This was abbreviated to Clipsal - and an iconic brand was born. Under the leadership of Alfred’s son, Geoff, the company spearheaded several manufacturing breakthroughs, including the first all-Australian switch in 1930 and pioneering the use of thermoplastics in 1950.
A Formidable Partnership Begins
At the close of 2003, Clipsal was acquired by Schneider Electric, forming a formidable partnership. Through Clipsal, Schneider Electric secured market leadership in Australia and the Asia Pacific electrical accessories market. Conversely, Clipsal gained a major stronghold on the growing integrated control and data communications markets.
