We are your partner for future-proof industrial automation - from virtualization to functional safety solutions.

The founders of SALZ Automation have over 40 years of combined experience in automation technology and share the vision of a revolutionary flexible and at the same time uncompromisingly safe and secure automation system. So that, what the world will need tomorrow can be created today: real progress and sustainable investment security.


SALZ Automation is a provider of Industrial automation and safety related solutions and products. The company was founded by Thomas Hüttemeier in 2021, who has over 25 years of experience in automation technology and knows, how the opportunities of Industry 4.0 can be used effectively with all facets of functional safety. Three success factors have emerged for Thomas Hüttemeier in his career so far: concentration on the essentials, meeting at eye level and, above all, passion. All decisions and actions of the globally operating company SALZ Automation are influenced by his “German heart”, which feels responsible for the highest quality as well as for sustainable, safe environments to protect people, machines and material.

In April 2022, Dr. Thomas Holm joined the company as the second shareholder and managing director. He is responsible for system and product development, especially in the area of industrial control technology. With his expertise, the most flexible and open control system in industrial automation for mechanical and plant engineering will be created under his leadership.

The in-depth know-how is not an end in itself; the company aims to develop intelligent automation solutions that the market really needs, understands quickly and knows how to use profitably. After its intensive development and evaluation phase, SALZ Automation is now serving the world market with technically sophisticated automation products.

Why the name SALZ?

Our brand name “SALZ” (English “salt”) goes back to the name of the German spa town Bad Salzuflen, which is the hometown of the founder and CEO of SALZ Automation, Thomas Hüttemeier. So it is a homage to the origins, but also an image for the new “flavor” that the company adds to the automation industry.
