The original Entrelec was a French company, founded in Lyon in 1920, and operated in 17 countries as a leading manufacturer of quality terminal blocks. It had production sites in France, the Czech Republic, Poland, Germany, the US and Mexico, and employed some 2,000 people. In 2001 Entrelec was acquired by ABB, who developed its product ranges to include power distribution blocks and modular terminal blocks. By this time, the company was serving customers in over 70 countries worldwide.

In 2018, the Entrelec brand passed from ABB to TE Connectivity, allowing TE to offer a comprehensive system for signal, power and data connectivity. TE Connectivity was originally an American company founded during WW2. It went through various transformations until it became Tyco Electronics in 2007, and then TE Connectivity in 2011. It's now based in Switzerland and is known for producing sensors and connectors that are resilient to harsh environments.
