Gira was founded in 1905 and, today, with more than 1,200 employees and representatives in 38 countries, it is counted among Germany’s leading medium-sized companies in the electrical industry. It manufactures switches and socket outlets, in addition to a wide range of electrical installation systems, including for the fields of communication technology, door intercoms and the automation of heating, light and blinds.
Gira products and systems can be found in a wide variety of properties, from the Lufthansa Aviation Centre and the Hoechst management board building to kindergartens, schools and common residential buildings. At Gira, the demand for new product developments is very high. Gira quality products have received numerous awards and their launches are always met with great enthusiasm on the market.
Several years ago, Gira separated plastics technology from building technology and established it as a business segment in its own right. Since then, other companies, including those in the medical technology field, also have Gira manufacture their products.
