WAGO was first established as a family company in Minden, Germany, in 1951, under the name WAGO Klemmenwerk GmbH. Two founding partners, Friedrich Hohorst and Heinrich Nagel. had patented an innovative spring clamp for connecting electrical wires, which didn't require screws. WAGO is still headquartered in Minden, under the original family management, but is now called WAGO Kontakttechnik GmbH & Co. KG. The company is best known for manufacturing electrical connection components, and for making electronic components needed for decentralised automation. As well as their famed cage clamp products and push-wire connectors, they specialise in software and solutions for the industrial, rail and energy sectors, building and lighting management, and the marine and offshore sectors.
The company has grown a lot since its foundation, and is now a sizeable Group fielding 8,500 global personnel, of whom almost half work in Germany. WAGO has divided its operations into two principal business divisions, Automation and Electrical Interconnections, and has representatives in over 80 countries. The company now has nine international production centres and a further 20 sales and distribution centres around the world. Global sales approach 100 million euros a year.
