100 years of Theben: Evolution from a time switch specialist into a provider of complete systems for intelligent, networked buildings

(Haigerloch, 2021-02-22) By the time Paul Schwenk founded his “specialist factory for electrical switching gadgets” in Stuttgart on 22 February 1921, he was certainly very well prepared for this new stage in his career. Born in Heidenheim on the eastern Swabian Alb in 1889, he had already trained as a precision engineer with a church clock maker in Ulm and had then spent many years working for a time switch manufacturer in Stuttgart, earning his title of master craftsman in the process. The masterpiece of his career turned out to be a “3-minute timer for staircase lighting”. In 1919, he had developed a “remote time switch” that warned people on the staircase that the light was about to switch off. This was patented in 1921.

100 years of Theben: 100 years of building automation Greater energy efficiency. Greater comfort.

(Haigerloch, 2021-02-22) In 2021, Theben celebrates its 100th anniversary. A lot has happened in the course of those 100 years. Since it invented the staircase light timer switch, the company has developed into a leading manufacturer of time, light and climate control technology as well as KNX, smart home and smart energy solutions. Its classic products – such as the practical theben-timer that simply plugs into a socket or the ELPA staircase light timer switch, which is still in production today (albeit in an optimised form) – have become legendary and not just among experts! But there's much more to Theben than that. Over the past 100 years, Theben has passed innumerable technological milestones, which we would now like to explore in a bit more detail here.

100 years of building automation: 5 questions with Paul Sebastian Schwenk CEO of Theben AG

(Haigerloch, 2021-02-22) When founder Paul Schwenk registered the company “Spezialfabrikation elektr. Schaltapparate” in the Stuttgart commercial register in 1921, he never could have imagined the success story of the modern-day Theben AG. However, at the time, he laid the foundation for the family business, which now enjoys success on a global scale. What started with a patent issued in 1921 for the first staircase light timer switch has now developed into an extensive product portfolio covering time and light control, climate control, KNX building system technology, smart home and solutions for digitalising the energy revolution.

In this interview, Paul Sebastian Schwenk, CEO of Theben AG and great-grandson of the company founder discusses the history of Theben and reflects on the current and future challenges for the company.
