40 years of GLAUB – a success story in the second generation

1979 was not only the year in which computer technology made significant progress and has had a lasting impact on development to this day. It was also the founding year of today’s GLAUB group of companies.

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.
