60 Years SIEB & MEYER

Press releases
The founders Reinhard Sieb and Johannes Meyer

From Think Tank to Global Company

In the course of the company history, SIEB & MEYER AG blossomed from a micro enterprise into a globally operating technological leader for control and drive electronics. From the very beginning, the company has focused on special solutions for complex applications, which has become the secret behind its success.

Since its foundation in 1962, SIEB & MEYER has specialized in niche products: the electrical engineer Reinhard Sieb and the physicist Johannes Meyer started the business in a workshop located in Hamburg developing customized electronic solutions, for example a needle adjustment unit. In 1967, the company moved to new premises at the address "Auf dem Schmaarkamp" in Lueneburg – headquarters of SIEB & MEYER until today. Simultaneously the product range was expanded: NC controls as well as the first frequency converters and servo amplifiers conquered the market. Today, SIEB & MEYER offers innovative frequency converters for high-speed motors as well as high-dynamic servo amplifiers in the business unit 'drive technology'. These products smooth the way for new technologies in their respective fields of application. In the field of CNC control systems for mechanical drilling and routing of printed circuit boards, SIEB & MEYER is the world market leader and lately achieved record sales because of the well-filled order book.

"On the one hand, we owe our success to the commitment and ideas of our employees," emphasized Markus Meyer, CEO at SIEB & MEYER AG. "On the other hand, our steady growth is due to our focus on market niches. Thereby, we consequently adhere to the specific requirements of our customers." Despite its global success, SIEB & MEYER has remained down to earth: the company is still family-run and remains true to its structures as a medium-sized company, i.e. flat hierarchies enable a pleasant working atmosphere as well as quick decision making and maximum flexibility for customers.

At SIEB & MEYER, all signs still point to innovation: based on the development platform SD4x, the company has developed a frequency converter/servo amplifier series that enables significant improvements for motor operation thanks to numerous technical innovations. In parallel with the continuous development of the product range, SIEB & MEYER is actively optimizing the production operations at present. This endeavor aims at a medium-term CO2 neutrality of the production – because as a successful company, SIEB & MEYER is aware of its responsibilities regarding sustainability.
