Weidmüller – the name stands for competence, audacity, performance, pioneering spirit and reliability since 1850. As a pioneer of Industrial Connectivity, we have written industrial history with our innovations. We set standards with the production and sale of the first plastic-insulated terminal block. This was followed by the PUSH IN connection system, the invention of the first PCB connection terminal and most recently the development of an Automated Machine Learning Tool. And that's not all: For 170 years, we have been developing pioneering innovations that have shaped an entire industry. Easy to install, flexible to use and designed for efficient processes.
We move forward with audacity and tackle the industry challenges. Whether artificial intelligence, 5G, Industrial IoT or the Smart Factory – our employees focus on important future fields and research innovative products and solutions that are used all around the world. Usually we would have presented these products and solutions at the Hannover Messe. We feel at home as an "industrial pioneer".
Our Chief Technology Officer would like to welcome you to our digital experience in place of the Hannover Messe, and give you an overview of our highlight topics.
In addition to our digital trade fair experience, we would also like to invite you to dive deeper into individual topics and to get in touch with our experts. For this purpose, we have put together a comprehensive webinar offer for the next three months.
With our 170-year history, we can look back on a long tradition dating back to the year 1850, when Weidmüller was founded as a textile company. The move to the technology sector came around 100 years later. The big leap finally began with the reinvention and production of the first plastic-insulated terminal block. Since then, Weidmüller has been a constant player in the industry and technology sector. And we have continually evolved and introduced new innovations. In 2020, we are celebrating the 170-year anniversary of our company. This is why we were particularly looking forward to this year's Hannover Messe, where we would have once more shown you how we have evolved – into a provider of Industrial IoT solutions.
We would have presented a range of new products to you at Hannover Messe of course. Get an overview of the product innovations here.
