Kaufbeuren, 20.10.2020 – The Kaufbeuren-based company Sensor-Technik Wiedemann GmbH (STW) and the Rottweil-based company MRS Electronic GmbH & Co. KG are pooling their expertise. The aim is to serve customers in the mobile machines and automotive markets in an even more comprehensive way. 

STW offers solutions for the mobile machines market ranging from sensors, control units and human-machine interfaces to networking, data management and cloud connections. MRS specializes in intelligent electronic products in the automotive industry.

Different products, same applications – in the past, customers often had to approach STW and MRS separately. The cooperation of the two companies is intended to offer customers great added value and to create synergies: Besides the expansion and mutual exchange of products, the long-term goal is to offer joint solutions. 

Through the cooperation with STW, MRS Electronic expands its existing range of small control units to include control units with a large number of I/Os and communication options (CAN-Bus, Ethernet, BroadR-Reach) as well as the corresponding I/O modules – both in normal and functionally safe variants. MRS is also adding STW products from the promising and growing market of body control units to its portfolio. In return, STW profits in the niche market of small control units as well as from products such as relays, gateways and CAN control units. 

No re-labeling, transparent and reliable business relations between both partners and their customers. An STW safety control units remains an STW control unit even when purchased via MRS.
