Crabtree: 1919 to 2019 and Beyond
It began with the flick of switch.
One hundred years ago John Ashworth Crabtree designed and patented a quick make and quick break switch. This innovation was the beginning of the philosophy that became the culture of electrical safety for Crabtree.
As it turns 100 in 2019, Crabtree is still a leading brand in the UK. Now a Siemens company, it has 100 years of innovation from the early inventions that inspired and evolved into the devices electrical installations would be nowhere without.
Electrical safety has always been at the heart of everything Crabtree does. It’s a philosophy that has seen the brand through periods of depression, a world war, and market uncertainty. It enables them to consistently deliver products and devices that installers can trust.
One hundred years later and Crabtree remain at the forefront of electrical safety.
When it launched in 1919, Crabtree had a motto: “That which is built soundly endures well”. It was inscribed into the company plaque and rightly so. Crabtree was built soundly enough to provide 100 years of electrical safety to its customers. And with a 100-year solid foundation what else can the brand do in the years to come?
