The company was founded in 1945 in Germany by Georg Schlegel, as a development of his existing electrical installation business which he started in 1925. He started manufacturing equipment for vulcanising tyres and in 1947 developed the company's first terminal blocks, followed in 1952 by its first control units. Over the ensuing years Schlegel has continued to expand and embrace new technologies, including ultrasonic welding in 1979 and CAD in 1987. Georg Schlegel passed away in 1983, two years before the company's 40th anniversary, but the family tradition continued, with more members of the Schlegel family joining the company in 1959, 1962 and 2005.
From its early beginnings, Schlegel has expanded its sphere of operations, exporting to over 80 countries worldwide and with sales offices in Austria, Thailand, Singapore and Australia. The company still focuses on its traditional values of quality, innovation and design, and continues to manufacture all its products exclusively in Germany, ensuring a constant high-level of production quality.
