Local roots, at home in the world

SAE is a manufacturer of high-performance telecontrol and substation control technology for the electricity, water, gas, district heating, infrastructure and industrial sectors. We can look back on 50 years of experience, and today are both a major source of know-how and one of the innovation leaders in the sector. With more than 115 employees at our site in Cologne, we not only offer solution-oriented hardware and software products, but also all important services from project planning to plant commissioning. Our declared goal is always to provide holistic solutions for the tasks of our customers – “solutions in mind”! With the takeover by the French LACROIX Group in 2019, we will benefit from outstanding opportunities and synergies: By combining technological expertise, specific solution competence and market access, both companies promise themselves considerable growth potential – especially on the international market.

Our customers are not only energy supply companies and municipal utilities, but also well-known industrial groups and large plant construction companies. Wherever infrastructure requires intensive monitoring or even control, our products are used. Driven by our demand for quality, the consistent further development of our products and services, our partnership with customers, suppliers and employees, we see ourselves optimally equipped for future requirements and continue to strive for healthy growth.

Problem solving – with SAE IT-systems

We have been developing and producing telecontrol and substation automation technology for use in electricity, gas, heating, water, industry and infrastructure for over 50 years. One thing we have learnt from numerous successful projects is that the deployment of high-quality products alone is not sufficient. The decisive factor is the know-how for developing useful concepts and to align all components perfectly with one another.
