MENNEKES is a Global Leader in the manufacturing of industrial electrical products. MENNEKES’ company headquarters are in Germany. There are a further 16 offices in Germany and 80 world-wide.

Their company slogan is ‘plugs for the world’. This statement reflects the company's aim and policy. MENNEKES is a leading manufacturer of standardised industrial plugs and sockets with subsidiaries and agencies in over 90 countries. A long term relationship with installers, wholesalers and industry has moulded the company's development.


The first subsidiary abroad was MENNEKES Electric Limited in Orpington, founded in 1987 by Bob Wheeler and Walter Mennekes. The company has since continued to grow in the UK market due to the reliability of their products and services.

The history of MENNEKES dates back to 1935, when Aloys Mennekes received his master craftsman's diploma in electrical engineering and founded his own company. What started as a small electrical workshop is today a truly global company. With its 13 subsidiaries, more than 63 sales companies and agencies, the company has a worldwide presence.

Nevertheless, MENNEKES remains a family business, and whilst run by the founder's son Walter MENNEKES, the third generation is currently entering the company.

Their range of products includes:

  • Sockets
  • Plugs and connectors
  • Combination units
  • And more!

Highest quality, reliability, safety, power of innovation, marketability and sustainability of our action form our brand.


To ensure this premium quality, MENNEKES products have to survive the harshest testing before they leave their workshop. As a specialist for plug and socket devices, they have our own approved test lab where our products are exposed to cold, heat, dust and water over and over again. Only the products that withstand these tests are worthy of the name MENNEKES.
