In 1968, Modicon created the first programmable logic controller (PLC) and its success gave rise to a global industry. In 1977 Modicon was acquired by Gould Electronics who then sold the company to AEG in 1989. In 1994, AEG and Groupe Schneider combined forming AEG Schneider Automation and in 1996 this became solely owned by Groupe Schneider which was renamed Schneider Electric in 1999.

Modicon products are reliable controllers that are found across a wide range of industries in commercial machines, process machinery and infrastructure platforms. Designed to meet the needs of today’s industrial applications, Modicon’s long history in automation control is well known and respected throughout the industry.
