Corporate profile

With more than 1,000 employees and representatives in 38 countries, Gira is among Germany's leading mid-sized electrical companies. It manufactures switches and socket outlets, in addition to a wide range of electrical installation systems.

Over 100 years of company history

Gira was founded in 1905 in Wuppertal and initially started with the utilisation of a toggle switch patent. In 1910, Gira moved to Radevormwald. During the 1930s, the company established itself with the well-known lever-bolt rotary switch. Today, Gira employs more than 1,200 people.

Gira children's day-care centre

In keeping with its family-friendly corporate policy, Gira has now reached another milestone. Supported by the Radevormwald council, the company constructed a children's day-care centre on its premises. It was inaugurated in September 2014. The Gira childcare centre accepts infants and pre-nursery school children from six months up to the age of 3. This means that Gira is now also a place to play.


Gira develops and manufactures systems and products which set standards both in technology and design. This has also been recognised by the juries of national and international competitions. Gira and Gira products have been distinguished with design awards time and again.
