MK Electric

MK Electric Stockist

Charles Arnold set up his first three-man business in Edmonton, London, in 1919, which was originally called Heavy Current Electric Accessories Company. 100 years later, MK Electric is a household name, with its headquarters and production facilities still based in the UK. Arnold was responsible for patenting the Multy Kontact socket, which was the first major advance from split pin-style sockets. MK also invented the modern style of light switch, and the three-pin safety socket that was soon adopted as the British Standard socket.

By 1984 MK had manufactured 100 million Safetyplugs, and in 1986 was granted the Royal Warrant of Appointment. In 1966 it had been floated on the stock exchange, changing its name to MK Electric Holding Company Ltd, and in 2005 was acquired as a subsidiary of Honeywell International.
