Combining forces to overcome the limits of industrial automation.
SALZ Automation is known globally as a hands-on solution provider for automated machines and systems and a specialist in functional safety, with whom new ideas can be realized in true partnership.
The founder of SALZ Automation, Thomas Hüttemeier, has over 25 years of experience in automation technology. He knows how the opportunities of Industry 4.0 can be used effectively and is familiar with all facets of functional safety. For him, however, this in-depth know-how is not an end in itself; he would like to use it to develop intelligent automation solutions that the market really needs, understands quickly and knows how to use profitably. To make this claim a reality, he founded his own business. After an intensive development and evaluation phase, SALZ Automation is now serving the world market with technically sophisticated automation products.
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.
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.
Further development into a solution provider
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.
