Electricity is at the heart of Mersen’s History

Mersen’s history with electrical equipment goes back a long way. It was at the dawn of the 20th century that Le Carbone – the Group’s ancestor – first divined its commercial potential.

Fabius Henrion, the company’s founder, invested in the production of electrographite brushes – still used today in DC motors. Gradually, the company expanded its range to include cables, switches, fuses and dynamos, thereby covering all electrical systems.
