At the beginning it was passion driving the founders to make it better. To develop sensors with extraordinary quality and reliability and to provide unequalled customer service. It was with this vision and knowing that 'quality' by far exceeds the actual product that ifm started in October 1969.

After many years of intensive cooperation with their customers they have established ourselves in the market as service-oriented sensor specialists and today they are represented by more than 7,000 employees in over 70 countries worldwide. Even though they have grown into a big company we have still maintained the virtues of the founding years: The flexibility and individuality of a small enterprise and the quality and professionalism of a group. And customers are still today in the centre of their work.
