SIKO was founded in 1963 by Dr.-Ing. Günther Wandres in Buchenbach. Since the very beginning quality and precision have been their priority. The first production included only handwheels with analogue position indicators, which brought company's success and determined the direction of its development in the future – i.e. production of industrial devices for distance and angle measurement. Nowadays this idea is being continued by founder's son, Ing. Horst Wandres, who took over the company's management in 1990. The proper choice of the development direction was confirmed by the following new products introduced to the offer. In 1977 the company launched the production of digital position indicators, which replaced the analogue indicators. In 1990 SIKO launched the production of magnetic measurement systems, which replaced the expensive optoelectronic devices.

Nowadays the company produces a wide range of measurement devices such as: rotary encoders, linear meters, programmable displays integrated with converters, axial positioning actuators and inclinometers.

The company's development takes place in cooperation with clients. A number of customized technical solutions resulted in launching new products. The big company's success comprises of good sales organization and innovative solutions.
