A Long History of Sensor Solutions
Baumer Electric was founded in 1952 and started in a shoe factory, where Herbert Baumer would begin production of micro-switches for monitoring and controlling electrically automated production flows. That product range would expand into program controls in 1960, and give birth to its foundational product, the instrument and control switch, in 1966. Intercontinental expansions began in 1979, taking Baumer throughout Europe, the United States, Japan, Canada, China, and India. Additional complementary acquisitions created their diverse product portfolio you’ll find today.
