PilzDecember 19, 2017

At the end of 2017, Renate Pilz is leaving her active role in the Pilz Management Board. She hands over the management of the company to her two children, Susanne Kunschert and Thomas Pilz, with whom she has been leading the company for 10 years. As such, Pilz remains a family business.

Renate Pilz has had a decisive influence on the company, promoting many product innovations and the internationalisation of the company. For her it was a passion to continue the company after the early death of her husband, the then Managing Director Peter Pilz, and to continue in the spirit he intended. The vision to make machines safe worldwide originated from him. From the start, Pilz has set standards. Our products and solutions have become established as a brand in safe automation technology.

Under the management of Renate Pilz, the company expanded worldwide. The Swabian family business with 200 employees has become a company with over 2,000 employees worldwide. Renate Pilz developed the company with a great deal of dedication and passion. An example of this is the development of the first programmable safety system: an innovative and courageous path, where Pilz made industrial history. Together with her team she initiated important standards and directives, to achieve a globally uniform view of the subject of plant safety.

From 2018, Susanne Kunschert and Thomas Pilz will take the company forward – based on existing company values and the jointly developed strategy. Some of the issues they will promote in future are the progressive digitalisation of industry and robotics at Pilz
