Started in 1888 by founder Harvey Hubbell in Bridgeport, Connecticut, many of Hubbell's first patents were for manufacturing machinery. In 1891, Hubbell had an idea to make Edison's electric illuminating bulb more useful. Fixtures for electric light were slowly replacing the gas lamps, prevalent at the time. The gas lamps were usually installed in the center of the ceiling or mounted high on a wall. In many cases, the electric lights burned continuously. With no existing wiring in the buildings, the installation of a separate circuit or switch to control the fixture was costly. Who knew, after all, whether this new electrical novelty would last long enough to justify the expense?

Hubbell wanted to design, and ultimately patent, a means to provide safe, local, and convenient control of the electric light. His answer was the "pull socket," which was patented in August of 1896. The same type of device, with its on-off pull chain, is still in use today.
The Company operates through multiple manufacturing divisions and subsidiaries located in North America, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Italy, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. The Company participates in a joint venture in Taiwan, and maintains sales offices in Singapore, Hong Kong, and South Korea. Product research, marketing, and sales are conducted in this country and abroad. Because the Company has been an integral part of the growth of the electrical equipment industry and a pioneer in the development of new products and technologies, the Company has established a foundation of basic strengths on which to build its future growth.

Fundamentally, Hubbell Incorporated
