The European idea became reality
The European idea is not based on dreams, but on people who act. Like the leading electrical wholesalers from Finland, the Netherlands, Austria and Switzerland that came together in response to an initiative from Germany’s DEHA in 1994 and founded IDEE. They were all well aware that electrical wholesaling, characterized by independent enterprises, could only continue to succeed when the individual companies co-operated on an international level.
IDEE is now a leading group of owner-managed European electrical wholesalers. With 12 members present in 17 countries, a turnover of 4.8 billion € and 870 outlets, IDEE is among the biggest electrical wholesale groups in Europe. IDEE is a reliable partner to its suppliers within the electrical industry and to its customers, which include installers, industrial customers and public authorities.
