When SYSTEMA was founded in the early ‘90s, our small team of four organized our efforts around the idea of developing software solutions for process automation. Opportunities in the medical industry for process automation seemed promising but, ultimately, that idea was well ahead of its time.
In the world of semiconductor manufacturing, automation was in high demand. Improvements in efficiency, quality, and cost reductions were evident through the automation of data collection and production processes. The smart factory was in its infancy, the Internet of Things was just a speck on the digital horizon, and the SYSTEMA team was positioned right in the heart of the semiconductor industry in Dresden to grow alongside these technologies into a new digital age.
As manufacturing processes have continued to increase in complexity, we have become skilled in providing software solutions that span across numerous discrete manufacturing industry verticals. Since 1997, we have been working with our customers in highly automated discrete manufacturing towards the vision of the “Lights Out Fab”.
Our continued interest, some may even call it a passion, around the art of automation has provided us with deep insights into the unique needs and challenges presented in today’s production environments and has led to our development of sophisticated solutions in many areas of production.
In the future, we want to do even more to demonstrate our passion for the “Art of Automation” – the craft, skill, and science of software automation. To do so, we will streamline and deepen our service portfolio, continue to expand the international presence of our company, establish strong internal structures and processes, and continue to promote the development of our employees and their potential. To further the development of our company, we have partnered, and now co-own SYSTEMA, with the Wirtschaftsfond Sachsen (Saxony Economic Development Fund).
Our success would not be possible without the long-term, partnership-based relationships we maintain with our employees, partners, and customers over the years. For this, I extend my sincere gratitude to each and every one of you for your ongoing contributions, support, and achievements.
With more than 170 employees at several international locations, the SYSTEMA team has proudly supported our customers worldwide on their path to “smart production” for 25 years. We have big plans for future growth and look forward to many new assignments, projects, and outstanding collaborations.
