Company history

Providing innovative cabling and connection systems for more than 35 years

When the company started its activities in 1985 with the trade of simple installation and control cables, Peter Mändli would not have expected that he would launch the revolutionary chamber connector system ten years later. It set the course for further revolutionary developments of innovative cabling systems in today's information technology. And that is still our major goal: to develop, supply and implement ultra-fast and secure building and industrial cabling systems in the digital age.
