Machine safety and workplace protection
The tec.nicum was founded on 1 January 2016 by the Schmersal Group as a business unit for services. The establishment of tec.nicum as an independent business division underlines our claim to offer our customers competent, product- and manufacturer-neutral advice.
In the past, the Schmersal Group had already comprehensively advised its customers and accompanied demanding consulting projects in the field of machine safety. With tec.nicum, the services have been restructured and further expanded – especially at the international level: Functional Safety Engineers and Machinery CE Experts certified by TÜV Rheinland now form a worldwide consulting network, which has both in-depth knowledge of the regionally, nationally, but also internationally applicable directives, laws and regulations, as well as technical know-how and many years of experience in the implementation of projects.
Since October 2019, omnicon engineering GmbH, based in Kirkel-Limbach in Saarland, has been part of the Schmersal Group. The engineering company offers the complete portfolio of safety services. omnicon will continue as a member of the Schmersal Group under the previous name and is an extension for the strongly growing service division tec.nicum.
With the foundation of tec.nicum, the Schmersal Group has further expanded its position as a globally operating system and solution provider. In addition to a comprehensive product range, Schmersal offers integrated system solutions for machine safety. This offer is completed by the Safety Services of tec.nicum.
The headquarters of the globally operating tec.nicum is located at the headquarters of the Schmersal Group in Wuppertal. Many of the tec.nicum academy's seminars also take place here in a spacious event area.
