KW-Software Set to Become Phoenix Contact Software

Press release date: July 15, 2014

Middletown, Pa. – KW-Software GmbH, a leading provider of automation software technology based in Lemgo, Germany, will change its name to Phoenix Contact Software on January 1, 2015. As of that date, it will become part of Phoenix Contact’s Control Systems business unit. Current KW-Software Managing Director Andreas Orzelski and Detleve Kuschgke, Director Research Development in the Control Systems business unit at Phoenix Contact, will serve as the Executive Board at the new Phoenix Contact Software GmbH. Staff at the Lemgo site will join with the software developers from Phoenix Contact, who have been working at the Centrum Industrial IT (CIIT) in Lemgo for the past four years.

“Software is increasingly seen as a differentiator on the market. IT and production are becoming more closely integrated. That’s why it’s paramount that we expand our software expertise in order to sustainably expand our control systems portfolio and our industrial solution services,” says Roland Bent, Executive Vice President Marketing & Development, Member of the Board, at Phoenix Contact.

“This step allows us to pool our collective resources in order to be strategically oriented towards the technological requirements of Industry 4.0. The new CIIT building provides us with more space for further growth. KW-Software’s existing business with external customers will continue under the new name. This way, customers can take advantage of a wider range of software technologies from the Phoenix Contact Group,” adds Andreas Orzelski, current Managing Director at KW-Software.
