Phoenix Contact is a market leader for components, systems and solutions in the fields of electrical engineering, electronics and automation worldwide. The family company currently employs 14.000 people worldwide, with the company headquarters located in Blomberg (NRW) and Bad Pyrmont (Lower Saxony).
With a vertical range of manufacturing capabilities, Phoenix Contact not only produces screws, plastic and metal parts 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 highly 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 involved in and excited about technology.
One way we promote this is through our active support of technology competitions as well as by our involvement in the Phoenix Contact international xplore New Automation Award, in which 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 project at the Hanover trade fair. Currently, the competition is in its implementation phase which means that the chosen teams have already begun to realize their projects. The next xplore edition starts in January 2017.
