Member of the Month December 2017 - Baumer Electric AG

Baumer has its origins in the pioneering work of Herbert Baumer. In 1952, he founded Baumer Electric AG as a specialist company for precision mechanics that initially produced microswitches. In 1964, Helmut Vietze took over at the helm and in the early 1970s became a visionary entrepreneur in sensor technology. The once small business gradually developed into the international Baumer Group.
