Setting standards – Serving as a benchmark

To set the technological standards of the future rather than following established solutions. To serve as a benchmark for innovation, quality and service rather than settling on the norm.

These were the ambitious goals upon which Softing was founded in 1979. Over the past 30 years, the engineering firm has evolved into a globally successful, technologically advanced provider of hardware and software for industrial automation and automotive electronics.

Meanwhile, the Softing Group, consists of its four core companies at its Haar headquarter and six subsidiaries. In 2012 Softing generated annual sales of approx. EUR 49 million with its approx. 300 employees.

The company has remained true to its vision: Softing is now the benchmark for innovation, quality and service in its markets. Softing was also instrumental in establishing the current global standards in industrial automation and automotive electronics.
