Headquartered in Feldkirch, Austria, we are an international and rapidly expanding organization with over 500 employees worldwide. We have been developing unique automation and system solutions for our customers on a global scale for over 50 years.

Our expertise speaks for itself through our diverse range of applications in the energy, industry and maritime sectors. When it comes to tough environments and challenging conditions, Bachmann systems and solutions are right at home.


What matters to us

Focus on the individual

It is the inventive spirit of founder Gerhard Bachmann that has taken the company to the top of the world. Today, as over 50 years ago, the guiding principle is "Together we can achieve anything". A climate of appreciation is a good place to be. The smiles of our employees and customers are the best proof of a corporate culture that keeps its eye on the essentials: People and the environment.

Passion as the engine

Solutions can't be created without passion. We gather experience, think ahead, communicate, look forward, get inspired, try things out and are courageous. This is how we develop innovative solutions for automation. In doing so, we aim to combine space, people and technology in the best possible way.

Customer benefit as the objective

We are continuously setting new, forward-looking trends for the entire automation sector. As a technology leader, we are constantly evolving to find solutions today for the future challenges of our customers.

Joy in growth

In a challenging market environment, strategic foresight and innovative strength guarantee us consistent growth. Even in difficult years, we have been able to develop continuously and will continue to strive to grow together with our customers into the future.

Partnership as the foundation

Every company is unique. That's why we adapt to each customer individually. This means not only providing the right technologies, but also bringing together the right people. This is how we achieve the best results together. Helping our customers is all that matters. This is how true win-win relationships are created. We know: Success in automation equals enthusiasm and lasting customer satisfaction. As a long-standing and internationally active expert in the field of control and automation technology, we know exactly what counts when customers approach us with a new challenge.
