IN THE BEGINNING WAS THE LIGHT.
The 1960's marked the time when many domestic electrical appliances, large and small began to arrive into the home, fridges, washing machines, TV's etc that we all take for granted today. To cater for this increased demand for energy in the home, urgent changes had to be made to the energy network. It was decided that the French electrical network would have to change, lifting the voltage level from 110 to 220 Volts requiring the installation of trans-formers in each home. It was then, in 1964 that Guy Yves Stephanie built a factory in Laval to manufacture these transformers.
- 1964 Guy Yves Stephany establishes GYS and secures a contract to manufacture transformers for French electricity company EDF (Électricité de France).
- 1970 GYS commences production of battery charging devices and by the end of the same decade is making the first conventional elec-tric welding equipment.
- 1980 GYS is taken over by an investment company.
- 1997 Nicolas Bouygues acquires GYS. The company employs fewer than 50 mem-bers of staff.
- 1999 The first electrode welding inverter leaves the factory.
- 2001- 2004 GYS invests heavily in new prod-uct development. TIG welder inverters, plasma cutter inverters and other MIG.
- 2006 Sales and service subsidiary opens in Aachen, Germany.
- 2013 The GYS Group employs 470 staff, generating annual sales of more than € 60 million.
