Where We Began
Hubbell Incorporated began its journey in the late 1800’s when its founder, Harvey Hubbell, developed tooling and equipment to serve the growing demand for new assembly and manufacturing machinery during the industrial revolution. The commercial availability of electric power and advent of the light bulb created additional opportunities for Hubbell. With early patents for the “pull chain lamp socket” and “separable plug and receptacle,” Hubbell stepped into an era of creativity, inventing new ways to serve its growing customer base of businesses, manufacturers, utilities and homeowners.
Today, we continue the tradition of growth and innovation that Hubbell was built on more than a century ago. We are focused on delivering high quality, dependable products. Internally, we are supported by our knowledgeable customer care teams. In the field, we work with our channel partners to deliver our product to market. Our network of distributors and retailers provide sales support, local inventory and expertise for the end-consumer. Together, they form a partnership with Hubbell that has played an important role in supporting our growth throughout our history.
