HARTING has been a 100% family-owned business since it was founded by Wilhelm and Marie Harting in 1945. A management transition has taken place from the second to the third generation of the family, in accordance with our vision to remain an independent family business. Philip Harting, as a partner and board member of the Connectivity & Networks division, has taken over the executive chairman position from his father Dietmar, now a board member. Philip Harting now leads the Techology Group together with his mother Margrit, Senior Vice President, his sister Maresa Harting-Hertz, board member of the Finance and Purchasing department, and other non-family managers.
The HARTING triad comprises the three fields Installation Technology, Device Connectivity and Smart Connectivity. The intelligent and efficient products of these three areas form the basis of all connections in industrial applications.
The product and solution spectrum includes connectors, device connection technology, connectors [Translator: repeated] and devices with intelligent functions and pre-assembled cables.
HARTING products connect and network devices, machines and systems to data, signal and power. This creates solutions for the markets of automation technology, rail traffic engineering, mechanical engineering and robotics, wind energy and energy distribution.
