The capital of Germany is an excellent business location with high quality of life, and the highest density of creative and well-educated researchers and academics in Germany. We are proud to be a part of them. Berlin's large metropolitan area in the center of Europe has excellent infrastructure and is quickly reachable by plane, train and car. It's the home of Germany's parliament, the federal government and of the top central industry associations.


Yacoub Automatisierungstechnik was founded by Talat Yacoub in 1992. The company was quickly known as a specialist for Electronics for Harsh Environments. In 2005 the company was rebranded to Yacoub Automation GmbH. In 2016 the company became a strategic partner of Murrelektronik. Since then, we are strongly focused on trends and new technologies for products according to the factory and process automation market. Yacoub has become an indispensable partner of Murrelektronik.


We are a growing team of more than 30 specialists, aiming to reach a team size of 50 in 2023. We are organized into six departments. The Software Automation Team is focused on the development of PLCs, Edge Gateways, Cloud and IoT Technology. The Software Industrial Ethernet Team is focused on protocol stacks, controller management and UI. PCBs and Housings will be developed by the Hardware Team. To ensure that our products match our customers' requirements, Yacoub has a separate System-Test Department. The frictionless transition to production is managed by the Industrialization Department. Ultimately, we got an Accounting Team responsible for administrative tasks.
