StandexMeder Electronics is a global leader in customised design, development and manufacture for the reed technology market. Schukat electronic has been successfully distributing the company's reed contacts, reed sensors, reed relays and magnets for about 22 years.
Meder electronic was founded in 1981 as a sales service for radio and communications systems. In 1987, Meder acquired reed relay manufacturer ESF Weidner, marking the start of Meder's expansion into the reed relay field. Eight years later, optocouplers and precision wirewound resistors were added to the range. To expand the spectrum of services Meder offered, the company founded a subsidiary for the production of high quality tools.
Thirty percent of the product range are standard items, while the rest are produced according to customers’ specifications. Not only the reed switches themselves, but also the final products – sensors and relays – offer high Meder quality. The company works closely with the most important manufacturer of reed switches worldwide, OKI Sensor Device Corporation in Japan, whose reed switches complement Meder's own highly innovative and broad range of products.
In 2012, Meder underwent global expansion through its merger with market-listed Standex Electronics. Today, the two companies operate together as Standex-Meder Electronics, and the Meder group is established in Europe, the USA and Asia.
The company's guiding principles – trust, openness and transparency, optimism and progressiveness – are taken into account in its quality management system, based on the specifications of DIN EN ISO 9001, ISO TS 16949 and DIN EN 14001.
