Timeline

Since 1961 we have been delivering the highest quality with regards to various projects as a well-coordinated team. Today we plan, design and simulate complex automation systems in the fields of automotive and special machine construction.

This also includes offline programming of  industrial robots and on-site commissioning at the customer's premises.

IBS was founded in 1961 as a sole proprietorship by Willi Schnürer. In  the beginning, the company consisted of 2 employees, Mr Willi Schnürer and a technical draftswoman. The tasks included the construction of bending, punching and progressive tools.
