About Clipsal

It Began with a Great Idea


History of Clipsal

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.

A Formidable Partnership Begins

At the close of 2003, Clipsal was acquired by Schneider Electric, forming a formidable partnership.
