Gira Giersiepen GmbH & Co. KG is one of the leading suppliers of innovative electrical and digital networked building management systems. The family-owned company, which was founded in 1905 and has its headquarters in the German town of Radevormwald, has helped to shape the world of electrical systems and building management for the last 111 years. Right from the start, Gira's many innovations – such as the Gira HomeServer – have made it one of the most influential players in the development of networked smart building systems and in the digitalisation of buildings.
Gira products and solutions stand for German engineering expertise, reliable 'Made in Germany' quality, sustainable production processes, environmentally friendly and resource-efficient operations and perfection in form and function. But, most importantly, they make people's lives a little more easy, convenient and secure. It is no coincidence that Gira switches and control, communication and safety systems are now used in more than 40 countries, including in the central railway station in Berlin, the Olympic stadium in Kiev, the Messner Mountain Museum: Corones on the Kronplatz mountain in South Tyrol and the Banyan Tree Hotel in Shanghai. Thanks to its extensive expertise in plastics technology, Gira now also manufactures complex plastic system products for the medical technology sector. The Gira group also includes its subsidiary Stettler Kunststofftechnik in Untersteinach, near Bamberg, and shareholdings in Insta Elektro in Lüdenscheid and the software firm ISE in Oldenburg. Together, around 1,700 employees generate an annual turnover of more than €300 million.
