The reward: the company, whose vision and mission is to optimize machinery and plant installations and thus generate a competitive edge for its customers, has for the second time after 2008 been ranked among the innovation elite.
Murrelektronik was founded in 1975 by Franz Hafner and is a key player in automation engineering. Decentralization is the company's speciality. This is achieved by optimally connecting the control layer of machinery and plant to the sensor-actuator layer with proven concepts and innovative technologies. Special focuses include safety engineering, high performance power supply systems and an extensive portfolio for network installations. Murrelektronik concentrates on the incorporation of IO-Link components and smoothes its customers' path towards Industry 4.0.
And innovation is one of the keys to success. For this reason, Murrelektronik consistently opts to cooperate with customers and external partners on the development of new products. With this in mind, the company presents its development projects to a select group of customers at regular "Innovation Days" and has them assess the projects with a critical eye. This ensures that the innovations achieve high practical relevance and are suitable for deployment in a wide variety of industries.
