Announced in Herford / Wiesbaden, on January 11th, 2021 and to be effective from December 28, 2020, Ferrocontrol Steuerungssysteme GmbH & Co. KG has been renamed Eckelmann FCS GmbH. This comes along a simplification of the legal form from GmbH & Co. KG to GmbH.
Ferrocontrol had been a subsidiary of Eckelmann AG since 2006. With the change of name, the company is now taking the last logical step of integration into the Eckelmann Group and making visible in the market what has grown together very successfully within almost 14 years.
As a unit, the two companies offer a complete portfolio of products and solutions for the automation and drive technology of machines and the smart factory.
“With this step we are expanding one of our proven strengths. Our customers have always valued our comprehensive, complete solutions from a single source. For customers and partners, we can now present our very broad competencies and technologies more clearly and effectively," explains Managing Director Frank van Beek, “ With the Eckelmann umbrella brand, we are committed to our common skills and resources, which make us a highly innovative and efficient partner for international mechanical engineering."
The change of name will not result in any changes for employees, customers and suppliers. The unitary system will remain unchanged. All rights and obligations of the previous FerrocontrolSteuerungssysteme GmbH & Co. KG are transferred to Eckelmann FCS GmbH.
