From its creation in 1836 as a producer of iron and steel, Schneider Electric has evolved to become a global leader in energy management.

Along the way, Schneider has contributed to the transformation of industries with an innovative, international and responsible mind-set. With operations in over 100 countries and more than 150.000 employees, Schneider’s mission is to help people make the most of their energy.

2000-2009 was a period of organic growth for Schneider, positioning itself in new market segments like UPS (uninterruptible power supply), movement control, building automation and security through acquisitions of APC, Clipsal, TAC, Pelco, Xantrex, becoming the global specialist in energy management. In 2010: Schneider Electric strengthens its lead in the development of the Smart Grid, with the acquisition of the distribution activities of Areva T&D.

In 2010 Schneider strengthened its lead in the development of the Smart Grid, with the acquisition of the distribution activities of Areva T&D and in 2011 Schneider reached the landmark of €20 billion sales and continued its external growth with the acquisitions of Summit Energy (USA), Luminous (India), as well as Leader Harvest Power Technologies (China) and Telvent (Spain).

Today, Schneider is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of equipment for electrical power distribution, industrial control and automation. Because of its strengths in industrial and building automation, Schneider’s smart grid strategy is to connect those automated systems to the grid to improve efficiency and to allow its customers to participate in demand response programs. Based in France with operations in more than 100 countries, it had 2010 sales of $26 billion.
