WAGO Corp. (www.wago.us) marked 30 years in North America this past September. Established in 1979 in a small suburban Milwaukee, Wis., office by one employee, today the company operates out of a 75,000-sf manufacturing complex in Germantown. Its 143 employees serve industrial and electrical professionals with 17,000+ interconnect, electronic interface and automation solutions.

WAGO established itself with the introduction of Cage Clamp spring
pressure connection technology; the company says it reduces wiring
times by up to 55% compared to traditional screw terminations while
improving reliability.

“As one of the very first WAGO employees, this historic milestone has
allowed me to reflect on the privilege of watching WAGO—and its
commitment to North America—grow,” said Tom Artmann, WAGO Corp.
president.
