Phoenix Contact

Phoenix Contact is a worldwide market leader for components, systems, and solutions in the fields of electrical engineering, electronics, and automation. The family company currently employs 12,900 people worldwide, with the company headquarters located in Blomberg (NRW) and Bad Pyrmont (Lower Saxony).

The breadth of manufacturing capability means that it is not just screws and plastic and metal parts that are produced in-house, but also highly automated assembly machines. The product range consists of components and system solutions for power supply including wind and solar energy, device manufacturing and machine building, as well as control cabinet manufacturing.

Phoenix Contact is committed to education and training and takes this responsibility very seriously – both within the company and on a wider social scale. Our aim is to get young people excited about technology.

One way we promote this is through our active support of technology competitions as well as our involvement in the international xplore New Automation Award, where students are asked to submit their innovative automation ideas to us. The top 100 project teams will then be provided with technical components and systems from Phoenix Contact that they can use to realize their ideas. In addition to receiving some outstanding prizes, the winners will also have the opportunity to present their automation solution at the Hanover Fair 2015. The deadline for submissions is May 31, 2014. For additional information on the competition, visit www.xplore.org.
