25 years of MicroControl – the story continues!

Expert knowledge, individual solutions and more

25 years of MicroControl – we celebrated our anniversary during the past year, culminating in a wonderful trip to Amsterdam with the entire team. The past quarter of a century was characterized by innovations which the generations before could not even imagine. One of the motors of growth was and is automation – and versatile CAN bus applications play an important part in the development of solutions for demanding industries.

The founders and CEOs Torsten Krahl, Uwe Koppe and Frank Wielpütz are convinced: “Just because we realized the potential of the CAN and have been working on the further development of this technology from the beginning, MicroControl and their experts are a pillar of the growing automation industry”.

“In 2023, we will continue to be at our customers’ side with up-to-date expert knowledge, innovative solutions and comprehensive project development”, they say. Promised! For, in 2047 MicroControl will turn 50!
