Automation & Control

VIPA GmbH was a start-up before the word was ever invented. Founded in 1985 by Wolfgang Seel, driven by his enthusiasm for automation and the necessary vision for the possibilities of this industry. All this at a time when the Commodore 64 was considered to be the top performer. It’s true that the first company address wasn’t a garage, but nevertheless a three-room apartment. For the business plan however that’s all the room that was needed: Thinking laterally, offering alternatives but remaining compatible.

The first products were supplements and optimizations for existing Siemens systems, then in the 90’s the first PLC-System of their own was added, after that innovation after innovation followed. Today, with its range of products, among others offering one of the fastest Hard-PLCs, VIPA is now completely established as a automation solution provider and not only as a strong contender as alternative for the S7 Family from Siemens. Being open to many fieldbus systems VIPA is flexible worldwide.
