Initially the team had put a lot of hard work to establish brand Phoenix Contact. After a slow beginning the turnover took off from the year 2006 and there was no looking back. We continuously invested in machinery, manpower and infrastructure. Today, approximately directly and indirectly 1,200 people work for Phoenix Contact.

Our guiding principle is ‘Think Global, Act Local’.”
