The Marquardt Group can be found on four continents, in nine countries and in twelve locations, with its headquarters located in Southwest Germany. The pioneer, ingenuity, as well as the clear vision with which Johannes and Johannes Marquardt first founded Marquardt in 1925, is still a part of our tradition today.

With just about 80,000 square meters of space, including Production, Logistics and Administration in Rietheim and Böttingen, the German location is the largest within the Marquardt Group. In addition to its core functions, the Rietheim-Weilheim plant is also the center of expertise for research and development for the automotive industry and Switches, Sensors and Controls. Components for the most diverse parts and end products are completed in both parts of the factory. The installed equipment for tooling, production and assembly is largely constructed by Marquardt’s own machine shops.

No matter whether they are looking for sensors and switches for all kinds of household appliances, for cleaning and drive technology, for heating and air conditioning technology or for standard switches which are turned out in their millions on large automatic production lines, the electrical appliance industry finds a partner here who offers much to many. The focus is on the individual adjustment of standard products on customer requirements as well as the new development of innovative switches, sensors and systems. The spectrum by marquardt ranges from the production of special subassemblies to the complete mechatronic system.

As an independent, family-owned company, Marquardt operate responsibly together with the business partners and employees. Knowing what the customers need tomorrow, and being able to develop what is technically possible today, is Marquardt’s business.

What began with a simple On/Off switch at the end of the 1920s, developed into a passion that has continued to drive Marquardt today. The mechatronic, electronic and electromechanical switches and systems can be found in the most diverse products and are highly desirable in numerous markets around the world.

A variety of expertise in core operations, such as mechatronics, high frequency and infrared technology, micro-processing technology, sensor technology, as well as a strict project and process management system, are the basics for the successful development of the Marquardt products.

    A wide range of snap-action switches of the series 1040, 1045 or 1050 are available for different applications, as well as dust and water protected versions according to IP 67 and versions with switching capacities of up to 10 (3) A 250VAC or high motor loads of up to 6 (6) A 250 VAC. Safety and a high degree of reliability are provided by versions with integrated separating aid for breaking open contact welds. With a mechanical service life of 10 million switching cycles, these series also offer long-term application possibilities.

    You can find these and other products from Marquardt in our internet shop.

  2. 12.08.2019 - Marquardt adjusts product range

    Marquardt GmbH has analysed their product lines, and it has become clear that in some series the tools are already very old and will reach the end of their lives in the foreseeable future.
    Therefore, the manufacturer is streamlining the product range and cancelling the following series:

    0045 0320 0810 1040
    0100 0331 0815 1052
    0101 0338   1620
    0132 0344   1640
    0141 0350   1642
    0145     1656







    Of course you have the possibility of a remainder covering. We ask you to check your all-time requirements.
    Due to the condition of the tools, the manufacturer is unfortunately unable to guarantee every remaining output quantity. Depending on the incoming orders the delivery takes place.
    Please send us an order for your final requirements by 19.12.2019. Deliveries must be made by 31.03.2020.
