Pepperl+Fuchs acquires Comtrol

Pepperl+Fuchs, a leading developer of industrial automation technology, has acquired the business of Comtrol Corporation. To ensure that Comtrol customers will be able to source products and conduct business as usual, a new company, Pepperl+Fuchs Comtrol Inc., has been established. Pepperl+Fuchs Comtrol Inc. remains located in Minneapolis. With the integration of Pepperl+Fuchs Comtrol Inc. into the Pepperl+Fuchs Group, Comtrol customers will benefit from the group’s global reach and gain access to additional automation technologies.

Pepperl+Fuchs offers powerful industrial automation solutions including inductive, ultrasonic, and photoelectric sensing, RFID, and industrial networking. Comtrol’s technologies will complement Pepperl+Fuchs’ portfolio of Sensorik4.0 sensor solutions and interface technologies that includes AS-Interface, IO-Link masters, and industrial connectivity. Expanding its offering of Ethernet communication products and field-interfacing devices ties into Pepperl+Fuchs’ Industry 4.0 strategy and will allow the company to provide even more solutions that close the gap between field devices and the control level.

An enhanced Pepperl+Fuchs IO-Link product range will help our customers improve the flow of data from field devices to the control level and the cloud. Customers will be able to turn to a single, trusted partner to help develop their newest digital business processes,” says Reiner Müller, President of the Factory Automation Division at Pepperl+Fuchs.
