Phoenix Contact: from Essen via Blomberg to the entire World

Since the company's beginnings in 1923, Phoenix Contact has been committed to innovation and to providing the highest quality.

The Essen-based businessman Hugo Knümann, along with his company Phönix Elektrizitätsgesellschaft Hugo Knümann GmbH & Co. KG initially specialized in overhead line fittings for streetcars.

With the invention of the terminal block, Knümann set a benchmark in terms of innovation. The endeavor to offer and sell premium products in the electrical sector was further intensified, especially after the company was taken over by power engineer Josef Eisert and his descendants.

The company headquarters finally moved from Essen to Blomberg in 1966, where it had been located for a short time during the Second World War.

From the 1970s onwards, "Phoenix Terminals", as the company was now called, already offered a wide range of electronic products: from PCB connectors to relays and converters to power supplies. In order to better present itself on the international market, the name of the company was changed to Phoenix Contact.

In the 1980s, Phoenix Contact gained a foothold in automation technology and developed innovative and high-quality manufactured products: from HMI panels and industrial PCs to various software and intelligent automation systems such as PLC controllers and remote I/O systems, as well as much more.

The combination of traditional values, many years of experience and the constant exchange with other experts forms the basis of the company's sustainable quality claim - and continues to determine the company philosophy.
