Commenting on the achievement, Matthias Rebhan, General Manager for SIPOS Aktorik said: “Our position on the ‘leader board’ of business is testimony to the international growth of the SIPOS organisation, our expansion policy and our strength in key areas of process control.
“Businesses achieving the top percentile positions in German credit rating assessments are internationally recognised as reliable partners for long-term projects.”
The credit rating for SIPOS demonstrates the company’s success balancing R&D innovation and entrepreneurial leadership with solid financial considerations: the company reports that this has helped significantly in gaining validation of its high ranking position.
A previous track record as part of Siemens gives SIPOS Aktorik a history in the actuation industry that dates back over 100 years. In 1999, Siemens AG outsourced its electric actuator subdivision including employees, expertise, documentation and production facilities: since that date, SIPOS has operated worldwide as a successful, independent company.
SIPOS employs over 90 people and has a growing international network of Agents. The company has set itself apart from other suppliers that support valve control applications with a number of unique product features for its actuators, including soft start and stop capability. A strong reputation has been built for meeting the needs of both customised actuator applications and bespoke requirements.
In 2008, the company relocated to a new, 6,000 sq metre purpose-built facility in Altdorf, Germany. The facility houses sophisticated production and packing technology dedicated to global product distribution. The site also contains SIPOS’ R&D facilities and central administration functions.
A strong focus on customer service is at the heart of the organisation’s continued success. This philosophy has been at the centre of SIPOS’ development and is key to its forward plan for expansion on the international actuation arena.
