G'day Chris, Kev & other Aussie users.
This thread started from Chantale's announcement re an improved Electrical Elements for North American users & my question re "the rest of us"
Remember that Clipsal is part of Schneider Electric.
In late 2003, the Clipsal brand joined Schneider Electric to become Clipsal Australia. With the backing of the world’s biggest electrical company, Clipsal is now poised to be a major player in global markets and aims to be the number one electrical product brand name in the world.
and the other major player is owned by LeGrand (French iirc)
Over the years we've seen our best companies cherrypicked & their profits head overseas.
At least from my pov it's not quite so bad that Cadsoft went to Canada in preference to "these United States"
btw, you've think they'd standardize electrical symbols now that everything is "globalized"
