Complete electrical solutions for industrial automation

fm control was founded by the physicists, Dr Ulrich Müller and Wolfgang Franke, in 1990 and started life with four employees.

From the outset, we dedicated our energy to developing industrial electronics and automation for machines and systems. One of our major focuses was on developing and producing measurement and control components as well as development tools for embedded systems. Based on the many years of joint professional experience of our employees, we were able to quickly gain a foothold in the market, continue to develop and attract other employees.

We have completed numerous automation projects, e.g. in the timber processing industry and the automotive supply industry, as well as system controls in a wide variety of sectors during the past decades. We are increasingly focusing on complete services for automation projects in Germany and around the globe.

As a complete service partner for electrical engineering and controls for automation, we currently generate annual turnover worth several millions of euros.

The Team

19 highly motivated employees – engineers, technicians and specialists – now work at fm control. Thanks to our many years of involvement in the sandwich training course at the Saxon University of Cooperative Education, our team is regularly supplemented by 1-2 students. Many of our current employees have been working at fm control since their training period as a result of this system.

We place great importance on:

  • flat hierarchies, individual initiative and teamwork
  • interdisciplinary, partner-like cooperation
  • direct links between employees and customers
  • close cooperation with customers
  • a high degree of flexibility when completing projects
  • individual, customised solutions
  • innovations and using new technologies, while considering the specific benefits for our customers
  • development and training
