Schneider Electric
has had its head office in the Trianon site in Rueil-Malmaison, France
since 2000.[4][5] The current headquarters, also located in Rueil Malmaison and known as the Hive, previously housed Schneider subsidiary Télémécanique, while the parent company occupied a site in Boulogne-Billancourt.[5] History[edit] The roots of this company are in the iron, steel, and armaments factories of Schneider-Creusot[6] and other industrial concerns.[7] In 2014 Schneider Electric
Schneider Electric
advertised a cooperation with German power supplier RWE.[8] 1836: Brothers Adolphe and Joseph-Eugene Schneider take over an abandoned foundry in Le Creusot, France
and, two years later, create Schneider & Cie, focusing primarily on the steel industry. Schneider & Cie grows rapidly, specializing in the production of heavy machinery and transportation equipment, and eventually becomes the Schneider Group, a diversified conglomerate. 1975: The Schneider Group acquires an interest in Merlin Gerin, one of the top manufacturers of electrical distribution equipment in France. 1981-1997: Schneider Group re-focuses on the electrical industry by divesting its nonstrategic assets and undertakes a series of strategic acquisitions: Télémécanique in 1988, Square D
Square D
in 1991 and Merlin Gerin in 1992. 1999: Schneider Group acquires Lexel, one of Europe's largest suppliers of installation systems and control solutions. In May 1999, the Schneider Group is renamed Schneider Electric
Schneider Electric
to clearly identify its expertise in, and focus on, the electrical field. 2010: Schneider Electric
Schneider Electric
launches a €70 million venture capital fund with Alstom
to create Aster to support innovative start-ups in the fields of energy and the environment. Acquisitions[9][edit]
