MENNEKES Stecker GmbH & Co KG
Founded in 1935 in Kirchhundem (Sauerland), MENNEKES has actively accompanied the fast-paced entry of electricity into all industry sectors right up until the present day, and has influenced the industry with products and solutions for industrial plugs and sockets. And not only in Germany.

With a workforce of 1,000, today the family-owned company has an international presence and is one of the leading providers in the electrical industry. MENNEKES industrial plugs and sockets, and electric mobility products, are used in over 90 countries.

Where high currents have to be transferred safely and economically, our customers and partners can always rely on MENNEKES. And the EU too has gone for the highest quality: in 2014, type 2 charging connectors by MENNEKES were declared the standard by the European Parliament. A pioneering milestone. But we have been making more than plugs for the world for a very long time. We think holistically and create innovative solutions that manage and distribute energy more intelligently. We also like to think about things from the user's point of view when we are developing our products and solutions. MENNEKES – MY POWER CONNECTION
