Our project & product map
“Firm and strong is only the tree that has been incessantly exposed to winds, because in the struggle its roots strengthen and reinforce.”
– Lucius Annaeus Seneca –
The purpose of the company was the programming of programmable logic controllers for water treatment plants and the production of switchgear.
There was a rapid expansion of the business volume in the field of automation and switchgear production. At the beginning mainly in the field of water management and water treatment.
In 1983 HERMOS Steuerungstechnik GmbH moves into the newly built offices in Mistelgau.
Move to the new premises in Gartenstraße – this is still the headquarters of the HERMOS company today.
Expansion of the production area for switchgear.
HERMOS AUTOMATION GmbH: Market launch of the product FIS
First major customer: Deutsche Bahn
Steady growth and expansion into the business areas of power engineering and industry led to the establishment of further subsidiaries and branches. HERMOS was thus a full-range supplier in automation technology and independent or cross-industry. It is quite rare that industry, energy/environmental technology and building management come from one source.
A merger of HERMOS Informatik GmbH, HERMOS Automation GmbH and HERMOS Anlagenautomatisierung GmbH took place. The reason for this was the internationalization of business activities and the increase in the size of individual orders
HERMOS continues to expand and opens offices in Berlin & Frankfurt am Main
The commercial area was not to be neglected either and quickly another new building was undertaken, the office building of HERMOS Schaltanlagen GmbH in Gartenstraße in Mistelgau.
At the age of just 65, Dieter Herrmannsdörfer (CEO) died completely unexpectedly.
In 2018, the Herrmannsdörfer family decided to sell the HERMOS company(ies).
The whole HERMOS Group (HERMOS AG & HERMOS Schaltanlagen GmbH) was taken over by Elevion GmbH (financial holding) – until today the parent company of HERMOS.
Within the Elevion Group HERMOS has many opportunities to develop. This gives us group synergies of a technological nature and financial security.
In the course of a transfer of operations, the business operations of the EMSR Schnaittenbach competence center, ETS Efficient Technical Solutions GmbH (ETS), were transferred to HERMOS AG. Thus HERMOS also gains a new location in Schnaittenbach and an office in Essenbach.
HERMOS Schaltanlagen GmbH expands its production area and office space with a hall in Wolfsbach.
HERMOS Schaltanlagen GmbH expands its storage space with a hall in Plankenfels.
The HERMOS Group currently employs about 650 people and continues to write the success story.
High-quality and innovative products and solutions, the promotion of safety, health and development of our employees, together with our mission statement, are cornerstones of HERMOS’ social and corporate commitment. These principles apply to our management and every single employee of our companies.
