FOCUS-ON is built on the experience of the SAMSON and KROHNE companies. SAMSON, founded in 1907 in Mannheim, Germany, is a specialist in control valves for the process industry. Also originating in flow technology, KROHNE was founded in 1921 in Duisburg, Germany and specializes in process instrumentation. World-class engineering expertise providing a broad product range, extensive sales and service network through many local entities, and commitment to continuity through a family-owned business environment is the common DNA of both the companies.
Even though close cooperation had been ongoing between the companies since years in many areas, it was in 2017 that the CEOs of both companies, Dr. Andreas Widl (SAMSON) and Stephan Neuburger (KROHNE) took the first steps towards an extensive collaboration. This autumn day was the start of our ambitious project – FOCUS, which later evolved into a joint-venture company, FOCUS-ON VoF.
