IDEC Electrical Control

Idec Control design and build products that make the interactions between people and machines safer, more efficient, and more productive.

General Information

Idec history of obsessing over the details stretches back to our founding over 70 years ago. But where we’ve been isn’t half as interesting to us as where we’re going. Because we’re not satisfied with our past successes. We’re future focused and design centric.

We love a challenge, and our determination to get it right stretches into every corner of our organization. We’re relentless about making systems work smarter. From our products to our unparalleled customer support. That’s our promise. And it really is that simple.

Leveraging control technologies accumulated since its founding, IDEC contributes to realizing a safer and sustainable society by providing innovative solutions globally, not only for the factory automation (FA) industry but also in familiar daily-life situations. In 2017, the French industrial switch manufacturer APEM Group was added to the IDEC Group, expanding its product lineup in the HMI field.

This addition to the IDEC brand enabled market expansion via APEM-brand products that featured superior designability and environmental resistance, allowing the IDEC Group to provide a variety of products and solutions to customers in a broader range of industries.

We are aiming at nothing less than becoming the number one global HMI company, through our dedicated pursuit of quality, durability, and safety in our products, and through a lineup that boasts a designability and an ease of use that anyone can understand. Through our product lineup, we are able to provide countless solutions that bring together humans and machines.
