History of ILME

The history of Industria Lombarda Materiale Elettrico SpA (ILME) dates back to 1938 in Milan, Italy, when work in the electrotechnical sector to manufacture equipment for industrial installations began. Seven years later, the company was established in 1945.

ILME Logo

Over the following decades, ILME continued to develop as a business and create innovative new products. In 1962, they changed their focus from creating products out of cast iron, to use die cast aluminium. The following decade saw the release of ILME’s IB range of interlocked socket outlets in 1975, while in 1982 they created the Z range of compact switches. The innovation continued with the addition of the BK flat interlocked socket outlets in 1986 and the CLASS levers in 1990.

Moving into the 21st century, ILME launched the MIXO modular connections in 2001, the TM heavy duty socket outlets in 2002, and the V-TYPE innovative lever system in 2005. In 2006, JEI was launched as a “standard” alternative, while CQ 12 motor control was created in 2007, T-TYPE adequate materials in 2008, SQUICH connection without tools in 2009 and both CDS high density contacts and IB6 in 2012. 2014 saw the launch of IL-BRID materials, 2015 the SIMPLEX enclosures with self-closing covers, CDSH high density SQUICH connection in 2016 and E-XTRREME corrosion proof metal enclosures in 2017.

Over the years, ILME has expanded its operations from Milan to a global set up, opening in key automation countries such as Germany and Japan, and also opening subsidiaries in France, United Kingdom, China and Sweden.

Today, ILME continues to operate across the world with its headquarters in Milan, focused on meeting the promises made in the company’s official mission statement:

“Our fundamental values are: product innovation, original solutions, excellent price-quality ratio, customer-oriented sense of service, ethical behaviour and an environmentally friendly approach.”
