For the development and production of these solutions, we rely on a portfolio of proven specialists. The Hager brand, with products ranging from energy distribution through wiring accessories to building automation and security systems, represents the core business of our company. Other members of Hager Group are Berker, Daitem and Diagral, as well as Efen and Elcom. This allows us to combine all the skills necessary for the development of innovative products, systems and services required for building automation.
Together with our customers from industry and the electrical trade, we are working on future topics such as electro-mobility, Ambient Assisted Living, where building automation facilitates the everyday life of the elderly and individuals who require care, and on the networking of energy-efficient housing, which will provide greater comfort while requiring less energy consumption. The link between many of these technologies will be building automation and hence the product with which we have achieved our growth.
