FORSIS GmbH - our story
The roots of FORSIS go back to 1995. At that time, the company was founded under the name KUMATRONIK Industrieprodukte, which was the direct successor to KUMATRONIK Automatisierungssysteme GmbH, which was founded in 1982.
Since 2006, the former brand name "FORSIS" has also been representative of the entire company.
With its optimized industrial PC series MASTER, EXPERT, PROFI, ENTRY and MOBILE, FORSIS soon gained an excellent reputation in the market.

Standards - Modular - Flexible

In the area of standard components, there is the certainty that it is always up-to-date. Standardization enables existing infrastructures to be merged and helps us to reduce development times and costs.
Due to the modular structure of the device, the latest components can be used, and their long-term availability is also guaranteed.
The flexibility is already expressed in the flexible scalability according to customer requirements for topics such as inch size or selection of the CPU.
Our motto: The customer should get what he needs at this point in time. Nevertheless, it must be possible to optimally adjust the performance when retrofitting.
So that you can fully solve your task in industrial data acquisition, you get everything from a single source at FORSIS: from application advice, through various identification devices for person and RFID acquisition to industrial input and output devices, mounting systems and assembly technology.
We also make our bundled know-how available to you as part of complete solution and mobile workstations, as well as with efficient solutions for decentralized machine data acquisition (MDE) via small, networked I / O units. Of course, including monitoring and remote management.

View in the future
Despite the constant changes in terms of markets and technology, FORSIS would like to hold onto important constants in the future, to which the company owes its current position in the market to a large extent: the customer proximity of a provider focused on the German-speaking area, the high level of consulting expertise from over 20 years Experience in data acquisition as well as the consistently high quality in the area of hardware, services and solutions. Because one thing is clear and will probably never change: After buying is before buying. The constant endeavor to establish long-term partnerships will probably also make a certain difference in the next 20 years, which is why customers and partners decide to work with FORSIS.
