Exploit potential

To remain competitive in the market over the long term, standards must be set for safety, availability, efficiency, and transparency. These can only be met when all existing potential is rigorously exploited.

Keeping an eye on efficiency

Changing plant operations, complex processes, a high total cost of ownership, and growing competitive pressure in the market. Our industry solutions reduce your costs while improving performance and increasing availability.

Productivity and IT security have priority

Our industry solutions reduce your costs while improving performance and increasing availability.  The process steps can be systematically improved in all areas and throughout the entire value and supply chain. Our focus is directed at plant security through access protection, technical measures related to hardware and software, and at secure plant-wide communication and network protection. Perfectly and reliably coordinated process sequences ensure productivity at its best, as well as availability analyses and redundancy concepts the reliability of your chemical plant – from power generation to building security and from IT services to logistics.

Special solution


Packaging is the safe handling of a wide variety of solid and liquid substances, also a matter of productivity within a packaging machine. Our solutions allow you to monitor your material transports at all times, to optimally utilize your capacities. By integrating your package units into the higher-level control system, we also provide you with more flexibility. Increase your operating efficiency, improve your supply chain processes, and take advantage of our know-how to optimize your digital logistics.

Our services

Services for the chemical industry

From plant designs and concepts to retrofits, from the development of new processes to the optimization of existing ones – with our global network of experts, we can support you anytime and anywhere around the world over the entire lifecycle of your chemical plant.

Modular production

Modular production

The modular production concept with Module Type Packages (MTP) makes it easy to integrate complete subsystems for specific production tasks, often as third-party package units. These machines, plant components and aggregates can be controlled by our automation systems.

Process and gas analyzers

Process and gas analyzers

Process and gas analyzers are essential components in chemical plants. They control and optimize process sequences and ensure product quality. Our portfolio covers in-situ and extractive continuous process gas analytics as well as process gas chromatographs.

Building technology

Building technology

Our portfolio elements for smart buildings ranges from distributed energy and building automation systems over security and fire safety systems and services up to asset performance and energy monitoring as well as optimization services. All to create a perfect place.

Energy management

Energy management

Maximize the energy efficiency of your operations by looking at decarbonization, decentralization and digitalization. We can support you in optimizing your energy utilization and consumption, and can advise you on how to detect hidden savings potential.


Energy automation and smart grid

Transparency about generation and consumption, costs, and power quality are becoming increasingly important. A set of powerful applications, such as the EnergyIP platform, fully support processes and complex use cases in the energy industry. They help you to better understand user behavior and find ways to improve energy efficiency.
