Successful Innovations Need Inspiration, Commitment And Persistence.It began with an idea. Our basic thought was to find an alternative to the normal screw-type connection in the connecting technology field. From this idea we developed spring clamp terminal blocks.
WAGO underpinned its conviction that this was the method of the future with the founding of the company in 1951 and has not wavered from this course since then. This technology has long since become the worldwide standard and modern electrical connecting systems and automation without WAGO products is unimaginable.
Many people have contributed to the WAGO success story through their commitment and dedication. All of them believed in the potential of our company and were receptive for new ideas and processes and advanced these ideas with a sincere and passionate effort.
The conceptual shift which moves away from viewing automation projects in segments or in isolation to offering total solutions with compatible components, is the driving force which enables WAGO, as a component supplier to develop new and innovative products and bring them to the marketplace.
In our ELECTRICAL INTERCONNECTIONS business area we develop electrical connectors.
In our AUTOMATION business area we develop electronic components for decentralized automation technology.
As early as 1951, WAGO put into practice the idea of using spring pressure instead of screws to connect electrical conductors.
"Beginnings are always difficult" a German saying goes. But, that the beginning would last for 15 years until bigger successes could have been achieved with spring clamps, this was not foreseen when WAGO was founded in 1951.
WAGO meets the requirements of DIN ISO 9001:2000 as well as ISO 14001 for environmental safety. Download our certificates or read about our RoHS compliance here.
