Pepperl+Fuchs Lunch & Learn Event

About Pepperl+Fuchs

Pepperl+Fuchs was founded in 1945 by Walter Pepperl and Ludwig Fuchs as a radio repair shop. By 1948, they were expanding into other electronic production, leading to the development of the first proximity switch in 1958 and the first transistor amplifier with an intrinsically safe control circuit.

Flash-forward to today, and they’ve become a leading manufacturer of sensor technology, intrinsic safety and explosion protection equipment.
