Florian Hermle, Managing Director of Balluff.
The focal point for our customers is a suitable solution. And anyone who can supply this solution will also survive the future in this market. The majority of our customers develop complex production systems for their industry. For this purpose, it is necessary to offer solutions which ideally combine individual hardware components with software. These solutions may comprise individual components or an individually adapted system. Since the products are based on platforms, these individual configurations still remain economical. Smart components will also play an important role in future. Balluff has always developed continuously as a solution provider. With our in-depth industry knowledge, the wide-ranging technology portfolio and software expertise, we offer the best conditions to also supply integrated solutions in future. We see Balluff as part of an IIoT ecosystem in which every player also still remains an expert for their own area and therefore also depends on the special knowledge of other manufacturers.
