We would like to thank all companions such as family, friends, employees, suppliers, customers and partners who have accompanied and supported us on our way.

The course has been set for the successful continuation of this company history. Always with the future of the company in focus and with a feel for current issues, GLAUB will continue to be your reliable and competent partner for automation, process optimization and software solutions.
