The year 2016 marks Kollmorgen’s 100-year anniversary, a century of innovative solutions that have brought big ideas to life, kept the world safer, and improved peoples' lives. Since the introduction of founder Dr. Friedrich Kollmorgen’s patented two-telescope design in 1911, and the company’s incorporation in New York on March 22, 1916, the company has progressed and merged with like-minded visionaries who were committed to solving problems by designing precision-made products.
