Over 40 years of experience for the perfect products

The genesis of our products does not come from a specific point in time, a breakthrough idea or a sophisticated master plan. Instead, it goes back more than 40 years. Norbert Quenzel, a mechatronics engineer, service technician, entrepreneur and later QTM founder at the time, laid the foundation for what we are today. The know-how he gained through extensive and long-lasting service work on machines is firmly anchored in our company philosophy and has always ensured that every customer’s production is kept running reliably. Norbert Quenzel’s feeling for emerging technologies, especially in the field of automation, perfectly combined with the increasingly individual demands of special machine construction and thus put customer-oriented individualization in the foreground of all QTM business areas.

For almost the entire millennium to date, QTM GmbH has been solving the individual challenges of more than 850 medium-sized companies and large corporations. What began as a customer-oriented individual service can now be seen as the accumulation of experience over many years. Not only did we learn to understand the technology down to the smallest detail and to make precise analyses of such diverse use cases, we learned one thing above all: what companies actually need. Thousands of individual machines taught us that automation needs are just as unique as the companies that need them. What was missing was one solution for all. One solution that could do it all, and that today QTM has manifested in one of the most advanced product lines in the automation industry.
