Multipix Imaging would like to congratulate camera manufacturer Basler on their 30th Anniversary. This is an incredible milestone and we are proud to have been a part of their journey so far.

Norbert Basler founded his company 30 years ago. Today Basler is a world market leader in industrial cameras with annual sales of over €150m and an ambitious growth strategy for the future.

Here is what Basler had to say to celebrate its birthday:

“After the record sales year in 2017, Basler AG is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. The Ahrensburg-based company can look back on an eventful and successful past. What began as a two-man operation in the technical center in Lübeck has developed into the world’s leading manufacturer of industrial cameras.”

Setting standards for the future

“As the world market leader, Basler sets standards in many respects, both on the product side and in socially relevant areas such as promoting young talents and reconciling work and family life. As an employer, the company enjoys an excellent reputation and has been able to build the industry’s largest talent pool.

“Basler is heavily involved in school projects and regional initiatives; for example, the company is a founding member of the „Stiftung Beruf und Familie im HanseBelt“ (“Foundation Career and Family in HanseBelt”) and has held the Hertie Foundation’s “audit berufundfamilie” (“audit career and family”) certificate since 2011.

“The continuing further development of the successful ace camera series as well as the development and marketing of new technologies such as 3D and embedded vision are important elements in Basler’s product strategy. A sustainable growth strategy will continue the success of the company in the future.

“Norbert Basler and Dietmar Ley are expecting developments in the coming years: “The classic market of factory automation is changing; machine vision is constantly being revolutionised. The embedded vision trend will gradually replace today’s predominantly PC-based image processing and at the same time enable a multitude of new applications. We want to play an active role in this development and open up new market segments. This will lay the foundation for the sustainability of our growth.

“I am very proud of what we have achieved at Basler on the basis of trusting cooperation and long-term thinking, especially in our record year 2017,” emphasises CEO Dietmar Ley. “We owe this to our courage in taking risks and our willingness to understand constant change as normal – but above all to our more than 600 employees worldwide, their exceptionally strong identification with the company, their creativity and their motivation.”
