In 1945, Walter Pepperl and Ludwig Fuchs founded a small radio workshop in Mannheim, Germany, based on the principles of inventiveness, entrepreneurial foresight, and self-reliance. The experience they acquired was transformed into new ideas, and they continued to enjoy developing products for customers. The eventual result was the invention of the proximity switch. This innovation represented the starting point of the company's success story.

For our family business, a legally and ethically correct conduct as well as corporate social responsibility are a matter of course.
Our company can only be successful if we adhere to laws and regulations over the long term, follow our ethical principles, always treat our employees, customers, and suppliers fairly, and assume corporate responsibility. The prerequisite for this is that all employees and members of the Pepperl+Fuchs family must apply a sense of both economics and responsibility in everything they do. As well as adhering to all national and local statutory regulations as a matter of course, we therefore also adhere to the global Pepperl+Fuchs corporate standards, which are based on our own basic values and the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Our principles are documented in the Code of Conduct, which is adopted from the German Electrical and Electronics Manufacturers’ Association (ZVEI), and our global Pepperl+Fuchs policies covering conflict-free sourcing, environmental protection, and corporate social responsibility.
