From Start-up to international presence in one generation.

What Dr. Gebhardt & Partner GmbH started in 1988 with digital microcontrollers and simulation studies is now GEBHARDT Automation GmbH, a system provider for industrial automation. Founded by partners B. Gebhardt, PhD (who gave the name), his brother U. Gebhardt, MSc and Mr M. Pesavento, MSc, our company has been developing ever since.

We have been building safety and control systems for the process industry since we were established. With the introduction of our own control cabinet manufacture in 1997, we began offering comprehensive automation solutions.
