Company information:

Measuring and controlling - ifm electronic gmbh is one of the world's leading manufacturers in the automation industry. Since the foundation of the company in 1969 ifm electronic has continuously optimised technical processes in almost all industries. Four decades later more than 3,500 employees in more than 70 countries develop and sell solutions to 96,000 customers from mechanical engineering and industry.

The product portfolio
The success story of the family-owned company began in 1969 with the invention of inductive sensors. Today the "efector" brand name is synonymous of position and fluid sensors, object recognition, diagnostic and identification systems. The "ecomat" brand stands for networking and control systems.

Quality "Made in Germany"
Now in its second generation of family management and having its corporate headquarters in Essen, plus development and production site in Tettnang on Lake Constance, ifm is closely connected to Germany as a location for industry. Made in Germany – 90 % of the 7,844 ifm products are manufactured here, this guarantees the continuously high quality of the complete product range.

Close customer contact and innovative strength at a fair price
In close cooperation with educational institutes and research institutions ifm offers innovation with high product quality at a fair price. The extremely strong sales force are equally involved in the success of ifm. They give ifm a face and know the special market requirements, country-specific characteristics and offer individual support for any customer. This strategy gives ifm the flexibility of a medium-sized family-owned company but also the internationality and innovative strength of a group of companies.

ifm electronic's demand is to stand out due to its high product quality, awardwinning ideas, first-class service and extensive expertise. In 2009 ifm achieved a turnover of more than € 340 million.
