In the early 1950's Gilles Marechal witnessed an industrial accident that occurred when a defective motor was plugged in. The seriousness of the accident caused Mr. Marechal to embark on a mission to develop an industrial duty plug and receptacle that would eliminate the hazards posed by ordinary pin and sleeve devices.
The result was the establishment of the Marechal Corporation and the creation of a safety focused product line that is now manufactured and sold in North America by the MELTRIC Corporation.
MELTRIC Corporation's complete line of industrial duty plugs and receptacles (including the world's only UL and CSA switch rated plugs and receptacles) are manufactured in a state of the art facility in Franklin, Wisconsin. Corporate headquarters are located under the same roof as the manufacturing facility, allowing for efficient communication and coordination. As a result, many orders ship in less than 24 hours!
