Siemens ranks among the largest companies in the world.  The company is a manufacturer of pressure transmitters, temperature transmitters, programmable logic controllers (PLCs), drives, and many other automation products.  Siemens is based in Germany.  It was founded in 1847.  In fiscal 2007, Siemens generated sales of more than €68.6 billion (US$101.7 billion) compared to €61.8 billion in 2006.  The company had 398,000 employees in continuing operations in 2007, down from 426,000 in 2002.


The history of Siemens goes back to 1847, when the Siemens & Halske Telegraph Company was founded in Berlin.  Wilhelm Siemens took over this company in 1850.  In 1897, Siemens & Halske became Siemens Aktiengesellschaft, a stock corporation.  During World War II, Siemens suffered severe losses, totaling about 80 percent of company resources.  Siemens AG was founded in 1966.  In 1989, a major reorganization was completed, resulting in 15 groups, two special divisions, two legally independent units, and 12 corporate divisions. 

In February 2000, Siemens Energy and Automation and Moore Process Automation Solutions announced a merger.  Siemens purchased the outstanding common stock of Moore for $54.71 a share.  Donald Bogle serves as president and CEO of Siemens-Moore.  Siemens also purchased Milltronics, a supplier of level instrumentation based in Canada and the United States.  Siemens has also bought Applied Automation.

In September 2004, Siemens purchased the flowmeter division from Danfoss, including Danfoss’ magnetic and ultrasonic flowmeters.
