Founded in 1945, Harting is a German-based global leader in the connector industry. They develop, manufacture and sell the world’s most durable and reliable electrical connectors and solutions for use in mechanical and plant engineering, broadcast and entertainment, factory automation, power generation and distribution as well as industrial electronics and telecommunication.

HARTING was established in 1945 in Espelkamp, Germany, by Wilhelm Harting. His goal was simple: manufacture useful technical products for the industry emerging in Germany. In 1965, they invented the rectangular connector after recognizing the need for an alternative to circular Mil Spec connectors. Since then, the HARTING Han connector has becoming the standard for industrial connectivity worldwide.
