Stories from 100 years of innovative spirit
In order to take interested individuals on a journey through time, Balluff created an anniversary website on which numerous tales are recounted from the company's milestones to the anniversary and beyond: Witnesses have their say, current projects, employees, and locations are presented, and industry experts share their views on important issues in the future. "Quite a lot happens in 100 years. We not only got numerous new developments off the ground, but as a company we also moved with the times," says Balluff Managing Director Florian Hermle. Today Balluff is still a family-owned company: Florian Hermle and Katrin Stegmaier-Hermle are great-grandchildren of the company founder Gebhard Balluff. They manage the company together with Frank Nonnenmann, who succeeded Michael Unger last year.
