In 2020 Gewiss celebrated 50 years in business since its original foundation in the Lombardy region of northern Italy. The company was formed in 1970 on a mission of innovation, with their introduction of technopolymers into electrical plant engineering. In 1988 Gewiss was listed on the Italian stock market as a prelude to its international expansion. By 1997, the firm had acquired several European companies that were also leaders in the electrical industry.

The Gewiss Group was now formed out of these 12 internationally active industrial and trading companies, with a registered office and technological centre still based near Bergamo. A new Logistics Hub was launched in 2000, with three major production facilities in northern Italy and others in Germany, France and Portugal. The Gewiss Group has over 1,500 employees, with sales and industrial sites in 17 countries including the UK. The Gewiss Group is today a global market leader in electrical products, with distributors in more than 100 countries.
