The Bender GmbH & Co. KG, based in Gruenberg/Hesse, has taken over the development center TechniSat Dresden with effect from February 28, 2020. Thus, the Bender Group creates further growth potential for the increasingly important market of networked communication. The areas of e-technology development and charging technology infrastructure for electric vehicles play an important role in almost all branches of industry in the unstoppable transition to electric mobility with all its facets.
Bender can make direct use of the know-how available at TechniSat Dresden in the development of display applications, apps, programs based on Linux and versatile wireless communication modules, and can adapt even better to the challenges of the smart technology of e-mobility. This will also benefit the development of the charging technology for electric vehicles of ebee Smart Technologies GmbH from Berlin, which also belongs to Bender.
Since 1990, the TechniSat research and development center has been located in the university and technology city of Dresden. Since then, excellently trained and experienced engineers and technicians have formed the basis for many development projects. The Bender Group, with the former TechniSat development team from Dresden, will become an important development partner for the TechniSat Group – this guarantees a development agreement between the two groups of companies.
The headquarters of Bender GmbH & Co. KG is in Gruenberg, Hesse, but the medium-sized family-owned company, which has been growing steadily at a high pace for years, operates worldwide. ‘With the new team in Dresden, our development, especially in the field of electric mobility, will be massively expanded’, said the managing director of Bender and ebee Winfried Möll, and is looking forward to the cooperation. For TechniSat managing director Stefan Kön, it is particularly important to be able to enter the fields of smart technology and e-mobility even faster in addition to the existing Consumer Electronic (CE) division in cooperation with Bender: ‘We are proud that we have succeeded in this’.
The Bender Group is a globally operating medium-sized family business and successful pioneer and market leader for top-class electrical safety products and solutions. Research, development and production is carried out at two German locations, while international subsidiaries and sales offices ensure the distribution of products and solutions in about 80 countries. Outside Germany, the Bender Group has its own companies in 15 other countries. Bender has more than 900 employees worldwide. About 15 percent of them work in research and development.
The range includes measuring, protection and monitoring systems for applications in mechanical and plant engineering, mobility for electric and hybrid vehicles, power generation and distribution, regenerative energy production as well as for building services engineering and various industrial sectors. Solutions for reliable power supply in the medical sector are a particular focus.
The medium-sized company with headquarters and innovation center in Gruenberg, Hesse, is 100 percent family-owned.
