Three Vynckier brothers set up a company in Brussels in 1920. Their first product was a knife switch.
Leo Bakeland, hired by Vynckier, developed a compound known as Bakelite. Bakelite molding powders were the forerunner to today's fiberglass. From this process, an enclosure was developed and the first meter and fuse boxes made of synthetic material were introduced in 1932.
