Pepperl+Fuchs engineers are passionate about automation – not just in each product they build but in the processes used to build them. With 5,600 employees worldwide and sales topping €550 million last year, Pepperl+Fuchs is a leading manufacturer of industrial sensors for factory automation and process automation applications.

This passion for automating processes led the company’s R&D teams to embrace continuous integration (CI) powered by CloudBees Jenkins Platform for the development of sensor firmware and other software. That automation subsequently led the Pepperl+Fuchs IT team to leverage solutions from CloudBees® for business
process automation.

“CloudBees Jenkins Platform has helped us save quite a bit of time by automating jobs across the company,” says Andreas Daubner, IT administrator at Pepperl+Fuchs. “At the same time, we have centralized the administration of Jenkins, which reduced overhead for our R&D teams and let them focus on development instead of tooling.”
