By Roger Varma

ifm was founded in Germany in 1969 by two innovators: Robert Buck, who was responsible for technology; and Gerd Marhofer, who led sales and marketing. Their vision was to bring solid-state sensors to the industrial market that would have a positive impact on improving efficiency and decreasing downtime.

“The core philosophy of ifm is to focus on innovative solutions that disrupt existing technology and offer value at a cost that customers can afford. We call this sellable innovation,” says Roger Varma, CEO of ifm’s U.S. operations.
