About Festo

Prime movers in the field of automation and technical education

Each and every day at Festo, we pursue the goal of making tomorrow’s working world more productive, simpler and more sustainable. That’s why we develop solutions for automation and technical education that prepare people, companies and organizations for the digital future in production, and for new technologies.

As an internationally active, family-owned company, we know how important it is to maintain one’s roots. And that’s why we don’t just engage representatives around the globe, we have our own on-site companies with their own local identities. This has resulted in a global network consisting of around 20,800 experts who contribute their expertise every day. They make us a prime mover within our industry sector and help to keep the world moving.

On the way to CO2neutrality

Over the next few years, Festo will be massively reducing its CO2footprint. Since 2023, all of our buildings in Germany as well as our global production and logistics sites have been CO2neutral with regard to Scope 1 and 2. From 2024, the entire Festo Group will be CO2neutral – two years earlier than planned. After that, we will continue to work on energy-saving measures and retrofitting our heating technology in order to continuously reduce the need for compensation.
