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.
