Mueller Electric is a global supplier of quality electric and electronic components in business since 1908.


Mueller Electric originated in the United States in 1908 with Ralph S. Mueller, an American electrical engineer who founded the company and was the inventor of the crocodile clip. The company quickly grew as the need for crocodile clips became apparent and could be used for a multitude of purposes. Originally created to establish electrical connection, crocodile clips are also utilized to test electrical current, create circuits, bind two parts together or hold items in place. (You have used crocodile clips at one point or another, perhaps without even realising it. If you've ever had to put jumper cables on your car or have worn a bib at the dentist’s office, crocodile clips were involved).

Mueller Electric has a rich and interesting history as a company. As a pioneer of the times, Ralph Mueller employed 48 women before and during the World War II years who assembled clips and, as a team, produced approximately 85,000 clips per day. During the same World War era, Ralph Mueller developed strong ties with every branch of the military by providing clips for a host of reasons. Battleships needed large, duplicate orders of clips when being built—the first order was used in the actual building of the ship and the second was kept for stock for emergency purposes to repair damage to electrical circuits incurred during battle or to degauss the ships to defeat magnetic mines.

In addition to repairs and war tactics, Mueller Electric supplied an additional 1,220,000 clips to the navy for safety purposes. These clips were used to attach red-lensed flashlights to every lifejacket on every naval ship so that crew members could use the light for rescue purposes if they couldn't be found. Nearly all of the 41,000,000 clips produced by Mueller Electric between 1941-1945 were sent to the armed forces for these reasons.

Since then Mueller Electric has branched out to manufacture a variety of clips and other electric and electronic components to just about any industry imaginable. Today Mueller Electric carries the largest selection of crocodile clips in the world. The company is now a worldwide supplier of quality electronic parts with a location here in Nottingham in the United Kingdom and another in Shanghai, China.
