Our History

The Electrical Industries Group is well-recognized as the premier producer of electrical cables, lighting fixtures, power solutions, plastics for construction and packaging material in the Caribbean with a combined history of over 80 years in manufacturing. EIG manufactures the Century Eslon, EIL and Agos Lighting brands while also distributing internationally well-known products such as GE, DAB Water Technology and Rheem.

To give a brief insight into making of EIG we begin with EIL which was initially formed in 1969 as a joint venture between AEI Compounds (UK) and a local firm. In 1997, it was acquired by Trinidad Electrical Manufacturing Corporation Limited and has become the largest manufacturer of electrical products in the English-speaking Caribbean. In 2009, the company acquired Agos Lighting, manufacturers of lighting fixtures, which added even greater value to the company’s electrical portfolio. Seeking to break new ground, Century Elson was also acquired in 2011 a household name well-known and recognized for quality as the leading providers of plastic construction and industrial packaging products.

On October 1st, 2014 the amalgamation of these companies lead to the formation of the Electrical Industries Group Ltd. Today, while we are proud of our growth and achievement we continue to seek new and innovative ways to improve our products and processes to achieve optimal customer and employee satisfaction.
