A History of Connection and Protection

For more than a century, nVent brands have been connecting and protecting the world with inventive electrical solutions. We trace our roots back to the 1894 founding of the Incandescent Lighting and Stove Company (ILSCO), a manufacturer of gas lighting systems. In 1903, the Electric Railway Improvement Company (ERICO) was formed to manufacture power bonds, signal bonds and related welding equipment. At the time, electricity wasn’t widely available in homes and businesses, but it was improving how people lived. 

As electricity progressed throughout the twentieth century, more of our innovative solutions emerged to connect and protect new systems. In 1945, the HOFFMAN automatic press guard was introduced to stop machinery when workers’ hands got too close. In 1972, the Raychem Corporation introduced the world’s first commercially successful electric self-regulating heat tracing cable to control the temperature of pipework without overheating.  

Today electricity continues to change the world, as its infrastructure becomes more electric, driven by technology and the need for more sustainable solutions. Just as our brands more than a century ago, we will continue to connect and protect our customers with inventive electrical solutions. At nVent, we are building a more sustainable and electrified world.
