MK Electric – Proudly Serving Britons Since 1919. A great deal happened during the summer of 1919. Not only did British aviators John Alcock and Arthur Brown successfully complete the first direct transatlantic flight, but it was also the summer that would witness the humble beginnings of a little factory in Edmonton, London, started by Charles Arnold and Charles Belling and called the Heavy Current Electric Accessories Company. What would later become Honeywell’s MK Electric had started out as a pair of second-hand lathes, a drilling machine, gaslighting and of course, a pot of tea.
As for the origins of MK in MK Electric, this bears reference to a patent filed by the brothers during that same year. MK’s Multy Kontact Socket would later on during that same year be declared the new standard by the British Engineering Standards Association (BESA). Today MK Electric continues in the spirit of true pioneering, and even though the industry giant is powering connections the world over, the company remains most proud to be called the UK’s leading manufacturer of wiring devices.
