Gira was founded in 1905 and today with its more than 1,000 employees and representatives in 38 countries, it 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, including for the fields of communication technology, door intercoms and automation of heating, light and blinds.
Gira products and systems can be found in a wide variety of objects, from the Lufthansa Aviation Center and the Hoechst management board building to kindergartens, schools and common residential buildings. At Gira, the requirements for new product development are 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 its own business segment. Since then, other companies, including in the medical technology field, also have Gira manufacture their products.
