Kollmorgen is a key player in the Industry 4.0 revolution with solutions for robotics and automated guided vehicles with 2,000 people employed worldwide. Our infrastructure, intellectual knowledge, passion and experience are testament to our pursuit of motion excellence. And because of our heritage of customization, we see opportunities, not obstacles.
Why Work for Us?
More than five decades ago, Kollmorgen developed the direct drive technology that enables some of today’s most remarkably innovative machines.
We helped engineers build the first self-contained artificial heart. Our end-to-end onsite engineering resulted in China’s first air-jet loom for manufacturing, and we’ve been a pioneer in hybrid motor technology for transportation for two decades.
We work together to win together.
Meet our People
I really enjoy working in Hi-Tech and automation. Although accounting isn’t so close to the technology, our brilliant and dedicated engineers are always eager to invite us into their world of science. It is really interesting to see the continuous progress and the great achievements we’re responsible for. It’s certainly a fascinating industry to work in.
Since we are a mid-sized company with the power of a larger international business group behind us, I have to be very adaptable and work multirole. We manage financial flows throughout the whole world so there’s always something new happening. It’s a constantly changing and interesting environment to work in.

Bakusou kyoudai lets go! -This Japanese racing manga-cartoon was probably my biggest childhood influence. I got crazy about RC-cars, building my own from component level to compete with friends.
AGVs, although not directly suitable for the racing-track, bring that childhood fun back! The open “garage-lab-style” environment here is like the “Bakusou kyoudai pitstop”. Kollmorgen gives you a lot of flexibility with a focus on creativity and openness.
I came across Kollmorgen's AGVs on a site while working for an RGV company. Considering the “Made in China 2025 plan” with its heavy focus on intelligent automation, I gained a huge interest in working for Kollmorgen.
My job is to fit our solutions at customer sites through engineering, support, on-site training, and troubleshooting. It involves a lot of travel and meeting new people.

Application Engineer / Software
Since I started at Kollmorgen I’ve been traveling around the world installing our systems at clients and end users’ locations. It’s been a diverse and interesting job where one’s problem solving skills are constantly challenged. Currently I’m aspiring to broaden my repertoire within the field of software engineering, with the ambition to dig deeper into the core of our AGV platform and help make it even better.
As well as learning new skills at work I enjoy challenging myself physically. On my trips I’ve often joined local associations for some added exercise and cultural exchange; practicing wrestling in Atlanta, Thai boxing in Lausanne or Brazilian jiu-jitsu in Tokyo are some highlights. Back at the office me and some colleagues often go for swims or runs together, and in summer time it’s perfect with a beautiful lake close by for joint swimrun events in the morning or during lunch breaks.
