Company founders Erwin Bernecker and Josef Rainer have shown a pioneering spirit and ambition to achieve something great for the automation industry that continues to define the company's goals even today. This conviction led to the founding of the first international subsidiary as early as 1983. Entrepreneurial spirit and a clear vision for the future have enabled B&R to grow into an international company within a quarter century. B&R has become an industry leader in innovation and technology through an acute intuition for market developments and trends as well as a strong desire to offer high-tech solutions that benefit the customer.
