"Innovating Automation," with high standards and a personal commitment to your success.
Balluff is a medium-sized company that has been family-run for four generations, was founded in Neuhausen auf den Fildern near Stuttgart and now has grown into a cosmopolitan, leading global player. We are a sensor and automation specialist with tradition and long-standing customer relationships, which at the same time is an important innovation partner for its customers.
Our company opened up to the international market at a very early stage. In the early 80s, Balluff began to continuously expand its production and sales network. Today, Balluff is no longer just at home in Neuhausen, but in Europe, Asia, North and South America and all other important markets - in 68 countries worldwide. This allows us to better understand and serve our customers and give them exactly what they need: high-quality sensor, identification and image processing solutions, including network technology and software for all their automation requirements. As a future-oriented company, we not only focus on the classic automation areas, but also respond to the continuously changing market needs of customers and a digital, networked world: As an empowerer, we enable our customers to achieve sustainable success in their digital transformation with IIoT-capable hardware, middleware and systems.
Balluff has a unique quality standard. We call it Balluff quality: A high standard that exceeds applicable standards and that we offer you not only in our products and solutions, but also in our consulting and service.
Our commitment to our customers' success is unmistakable in the way we take on their challenges, meet their requirements and develop future-oriented technologies for them. Because we know that if our customers are best equipped for the future, then so are we. That's why "innovating automation" is our promise and motto.

Our strategic orientation is to focus on the customer and the benefits that our solutions have for them. So Balluff focuses on meeting the specific requirements of respective industrial sectors quickly and in a targeted manner. "Innovating automation" is not just a brand claim for us in this regard but the standard we set for ourselves.
