We are often asked why we are called Magnetic. The answer is simple: our journey began in Liestal in Switzerland in 1946 as a contract manufacturer of electric and servo motors – for which magnets are essential. In the mid-70s we decided to use our extensive experience to develop drives and control units not just as components, but also for complete systems. That was when our barriers and pedestrian gates were launched. This segment became what is now Magnetic Autocontrol GmbH in 1998, and the Schopfheim production site became the company’s new Headquarters.
