20 years MRS Electronic
From service provider to manufacturing system supplier

Milestones in the company history
The company Dieter Barth Digitalelektronik was founded in 1971. 6 years later the company changed its name to MRS Electronic. In 1990 Endress+Hauser took over the company. With much courage and ambition, Günther Dörgeloh, Bruno Merz and Rainer Zeiss decided on a management buy-out just 9 years later. They bought the company out of Endress+Hauser Conducta and returned to the original company name. The birth of MRS Electronic.
A strong team
The risk behind it was great. The trust in the then 20 employees was greater. And courage was rewarded. We have done a lot right in the past, otherwise we wouldn't be where we are today in this relatively short time", says Bruno Merz, Head of Administration. The great success is only possible with competent and motivated employees. The employees are the most important capital of a company," says Günther Dörgeloh, managing partner. Today the company has more than 200 employees.
The recipe for success
What distinguishes MRS is its working style. "We always deal openly and fairly with customers, suppliers and employees. This may set us apart from other companies," says Bruno Merz. At MRS, the customer benefits from clear added value - everything from a single source. Due to the constant growth, the employees were able to acquire a lot of knowledge. For example, there are specialists for many topics so that one can concentrate even more on customer requirements. MRS also invests a lot in the future.
Worldwide network of partners
In the meantime, MRS has built up a worldwide network of international partners. In addition to the main location in Rottweil, sister companies in the USA, Croatia and the Ukraine have been added. With a commercial agency in France and 8 worldwide sales partners, customer enquiries from all over the world are covered.
Anniversary year - outlook 2019
The jubilee year 2019 brings a lot of new things with it. The 32-bit CAN generation presented at bauma is the beginning of a new technology wave. In August / September, the new 3500 square metre building at the main location in Rottweil will be occupied. With the three-storey complex, the previous company space will be doubled. In addition to AGRITECHNICA in November, MRS will also be exhibiting for the first time at an international trade fair, busworld in Brussels, in October.
Full of confidence for the future
Electronics is a growth market - promising for the future. MRS therefore looks to the future with self-confidence: "Many ideas and visions are already in the company and in the minds of its employees. In the next 20 years, we will position ourselves even more broadly and internationally," says Günther Dörgeloh.
