Standard
versions
The standard versions of
Siedle Classic are designed
for the typical needs of
many entrances – from a
simple door station with a
doorbell and intercom system through to a video door
station with access control
or a letterbox system with
front mail removal.

If the standard versions of
Siedle Classic do not cover
your needs, the functions
and dimensions of the
door station can also be
configured individually. A
set of functional modules
and modular construction make it possible to
provide a whole series of
design variants which we
produce in the Special
Construction Department.

Materials
and colours
All Classic door stations
have a solid front panel
which is two millimetres
thick. On the standard
version, this panel is made
of corrosion-resistant V4A
stainless steel with natural
finish or brushed. Other
materials include anodised
aluminium, chrome, a coating with a brass look and
burnished brass. A paintwork finish in any RAL or
micaceous iron ore colour
desired rounds off the design range.

Siedle Select:

Siedle Select meets the
requirements of small
private homes. Letterbox,
newspaper tube, lighting, movement sensor,
illuminated house number,
intercom, video camera,
bell – Select concentrates
the main functions in a
uniform, modern design
language. Its high-quality
mix of materials – translucent plastic housing and
solid aluminium panelling –
coupled with vast colouring
design freedom ensure that
Select makes an impressive
statement at the entrance −
irrespective of whether the
components are used in
combination or individually.

Individually combinable
The combination possibilities
of the Select components
are every bit as variable as
their design language is
uniform. The communication technology can be
integrated in the letterbox
or installed as a separate
door station. The LED light is
also ideal for fitting a house
number. And with its simple
surface-mounting system,
the shell of the building is
always left intact − an important point, especially for
energy-efficient buildings.

Compact sets:
your way into the
world of Siedle
The Compact sets offer
everything that a Siedle
intercom system needs:
high-quality materials and
workmanship, perfect function and contemporary
design. Because they can
be easily surface-mounted
inside and outside, they are
installed in no time, and as
they manage fine with lines
of the most basic quality,
they are ideally suited as
replacements for your old
doorbell systems.
The Compact Set is available in both audio and
video versions: the audio
set represents the entry
level into Siedle class. It
www.siedle.com/sets
fulfils the basic functions
of calling, speech and door
release with the legendary
quality which distinguishes
all Siedle systems, and an
excellent price-performance
ratio. The video set is the
simplest and most costeffective route into Siedle-quality
video monitoring. The door
station can be combined
with both the classic inhouse Telefone and with
hands-free stations with no
receiver. Every time the bell
rings or the system is manually activated, the image
from the door camera appears on the colour monitor;
even if it is dark, thanks to
the integrated lighting.

Architecture at the threshold Authenticity | Modernization

Modernization
Many first-generation Vario
systems (511 Series) have
had to stand up to many
years of use in demanding
conditions. And when new
technologies are to be put
into use, for example a connection with the landline
telephone, in many cases
they have to be replaced.
Siedle has made provision
for such cases: with the
use of special adapters, the
old systems can be simply
replaced with their current
successor, the 611 Series.
This means that the concealed housing remains in
place in the wall, with no
need for laborious masonry
or chasing works. In many
cases it is also possible to
continue to use the existing
wiring and other components, depending on the
installation system and the
desired range of functions.
The TL 111 Series door
loudspeakers, with their
distinctive loudspeaker grill,
have been manufactured
in their millions since the
1960s. After decades in
use, they are gradually
coming to the end of their
service life. If it is now time
for modernization, you
should only do away with
what absolutely has to be
replaced. We have developed a variant of the current Siedle Classic product
line especially for use in the
TL 111 Series door stations.
It is available with 1– 6 call
buttons, and their front
panel screw hole pattern is
exactly matched to the existing screw holes. The integrated housing, installed
cables, network appliances
and indoor stations are
all retained. The 100 %
match with its predecessor
makes replacement child’s
play and laborious masonry
work superfluous.

Communication
and signage system
A perfect reception is not
limited to the entrance area
alone; the door is only one
of several stations passed
by a visitor. The route into
the building starts with
the parking sign or garage
entrance and only ends on
reaching a certain room.
Other functions come to
the fore at each one of
these stations: identification of the building and its
occupants, communication or interaction with the
visitor, access to the inside,
followed by guidance, information and support in finding the desired destination.
The communication and
signage system complies
with every conceivable demand made on standardized design. It combines the
unlimited scope for variation of the high-end communication system Siedle
Steel with an ergonomically
optimized signage system.
The result: the perfect
reception – seamless and
cohesive throughout the
whole of the building.

Functions
Communication with a
visitor begins at a distance:
large letters attract attention and identify a building.
When the visitor approaches, signs at an optimal reading height indicate the way
to entrances or rooms. And
if the visitor is in immediate
proximity, ergonomically
correctly positioned control
elements invite you to: ring,
identify yourself, enter your
access code, deliver mail.
The communication and
signage system places every
control element, every sign
and every lettering in the
position best suited to its
function – inside and outside a building.

Design
Individualization
The systems which are shown are largely
identical. Their different appearance
results purely from the use of colour
and light.
The diversity of design
available for the communication and signage system
results from various combinations of different mounting options and functional
levels, which can both be
individually painted. In addition, we can supply other
material options for the
functional level and six different inscriptions as well as
the possibility of integrating illuminated information
signs. This enormous design
versatility allows the system
to reflect personal preferences, architectural styles
and surrounding materials;
corporate designs or colour
guidance systems can also
be implemented without
problems.

room, the garden or the
cellar..., Scope gives you a
live update of who is stand­
ing at the door. Scope thus
offers all the functions of an
indoor video station, includ­
ing a hands-free function
and a door release button.
At the same time, Scope is
a fully-fledged landline tele­

Design
Siedle Scope concentrates
its wide variety of functions
in an impressive profile and
ergonomically sophisticated
aesthetics. The control ele­
ments and menu navigation
are designed so that they
may be operated intuitively.
Function-oriented buttons
offer you the feeling of
accurate operation and an
assured tactile response.
High-quality materials and
the discernable weight sup­
port the device’s functional­
ity – Scope sits perfectly in
your hand.
Components
Scope comprises three compo­
nents: the handset, the charging
tray and a base station which
ensures the wireless connection
to the handset.
Thanks to additional control
buttons on the charging station,
Scope can also be used as a
table-top device.

125
Indoor stations:
assumed to all
be alike
Indoor stations shape a
building or residence to the
same degree that a door
station shapes a facade
or entryway. Every visitor
passes by them. Every inha­
bitant expresses themselves
through them. Insofar, an
indoor station has much
greater significance than as
just a supposedly uniform
functional object. An in­
door station, especially one
created by Siedle, always
combines building technol­
ogy, furnishing object, and
safety element in one. This
requirement is mirrored
in both the functionality­
and in the design: eight
differently equipped
models – Standard and
Comfort devices, audio
and video, with receiver
and handsfree – as well as
twelve very different de­
sign variants – made from
stainless steel, aluminium
and precious wood veneer,
with a black or translucent
plastic body – turn the
inside of the threshold into
a playing field for indivi­
dual preferences.

Models
and functions
Siedle indoor stations are
every bit as varied as their
counterparts at the door.
They come with a receiver
or as a hands-free tele­
phone, for wall mounting
or set-up on a table, as the
standard model or with
Comfort functions and with
or without video. What they
all share is their ease of use.
Their clean design lines,
non-slip, easy-on-the-hand
materials, clearly identifiable
symbols, signalling LEDs
and – last but not least –
our refusal to get involved
in exaggerated minimization – many such details
contribute towards making
them safe to handle.

Materials
and colours
The design concept of the
indoor stations combines a
plastic housing body with
individual panelling on the
front and back in genuine
stainless steel, aluminium
or precious wood veneer.
There are eight standard
materials and colours for
the cover panels, and the
housing body with the re­
ceiver is available in black
or translucent. So from the
combination of both ele­
ments you have numerous
opportunities to design the
indoor station in line with
your own individual wishes.
If the wide range of series
finishes is still not enough,
we will provide the cover
panel painted in any colour
from the RAL range that
you wish. We can also add
engravings and stamp on
logos. We will check out
any wish to see if it is viable
and will come back to you
with a specific offer.

Siedle Access:
venturing into the
digital world
“We believe that the field in which
Access shows its strengths will continue
to develop, especially in the project
business. Without a doubt, the future
here belongs to this IP-based, open
and flexible system.”
With Siedle Access, door
communication becomes
part of the IP world. The
system is compatible with
the globally standardized
network standard. It makes
use of the structured
cabling and data transmission protocols representing
the common platform for
numerous applications,
from telephony through
to media control. Access
can be integrated seamlessly into an IP network
to enhance it with the
entire range of functions
provided by Siedle system
technology – from the video
and intercom speech link
through to complex switching and control functions.
Even in the new digital­
world, the strengths
of ­Siedle systems shine
through. The primary
concern is security because
we place the very highest
demands on the threshold,
on the boundary between
private and public life.
With this in mind, Siedle
does not take a network or
IP protocol to the outside
of the door.
Security is supplemented
by variability and individuality. Siedle Access is not
limited to certain products; the system provides
a choice of three design
lines at the door – Vario,
Steel and Classic. On the
inside, the enormous range
of Siedle call stations is increased by virtual in-house
telephones, concierge
software, selected products
from other manufacturers­
and Siedle app for the
iPhone and iPad.

Application
Consistent and structured
IP cabling is increasingly
becoming standard. This
is certainly true of commercial buildings – is it
still possible to imagine an
office, administration or
industrial building without
an extensive network? But
in residential buildings, too,
an increasing number of
services and functions are
sought-after which can only
be satisfied properly on an
IP basis. The strengths of
Siedle Access, its openness,
flexibility and vast range
of functional possibilities,
make the system ideal for
use in many different types
of buildings.
Residential buildings
Complex, increasingly
linked automation and
control systems provide the
convenience which has now
become an accepted part
of living in an up-market
environment. The feature
that all these applications
have in common is IPbased networking. Building
communication with Siedle
Access fits seamlessly into
this digital world.
Multiple occupancy
buildings
Siedle Access can really
show off what it can do in
multiple occupancy buildings and large buildings.
Access is almost unlimited
in terms of maximum cable
length, number of doors,
users or speech channels.
And where bundles of
cables as thick as your arm
used to be required, now
all that is needed is a single
network cable. Access can
react variably to a wide
range of user needs – even
retrospectively.
Building complexes
Like an in-house LAN, an
inter-regional WAN can
be used as a basis for the
system. Whether you want
central surveillance and
management using our
concierge software, remote
communication or joint administration – Siedle Access
joins locations with almost
total disregard to the distances between them.
Multiple occupancy buildings
In fact, wherever there is an IP infrastructure, Access can react as required to the needs of its users. Whether you require classic or virtual
video call stations, concierge software or connection to a telephone
system – everything is possible and changeable, even retrospectively if
the type of building usage is changed.

Software
The principles of Siedle
design also apply to control interfaces – formal
and aesthetic quality,
functionality, ergonomics
and simple operation.
Concierge
They are an essential
component of many buildings and are enjoying a
renaissance in up-market
residential properties –
the porter or concierge
who offers a wide range
of services and security
functions. The concierge
software from Access is
the communication hub
for your work. It provides
flexible building communication, internal and
external camera surveillance, acts as an exchange
for internal and external
phone and door calls,
makes contacts convenient
and also executes switching and control functions.

Front door
The Siedle app for the iPhone and iPad combines
the strengths of two worlds –
with security and reliability defined by Siedle.
Front door
Simple operation is exactly
what Apple is all about.
And the result is perfect
mobile access to the door
communication system.
In the house, near the
house or from anywhere in
the world. The Siedle app
monitors the threshold of
your house. It receives the
door call, displays a moving
video image, establishes
a speech connection and
opens the door. But of
course it also features integrated security and maximum convenience, such as
an image memory.
www.siedle.com/app
The iPhone or iPad becomes
the indoor station for
the door communication
system and also the control
centre of your house. The
Siedle app makes internal
connections with other
Access users and can also
operate the Siedle Access
control and automation
functions. The variable
transfer rate which adjusts
to the available bandwidth
and connection quality
ensures stable connections
both via WLAN and also by
the wireless network.

Interfaces
Why not pick up a door
call on your telephone,
mobile or PC? Interfaces
create transition points
to the telephone system,
the PC network or the
intelligent home.
TV and video
The bus video demodulator
(BVD) processes the video signal
from door cameras so that it can
even be played on devices at
first glance unrelated to building
communication – such as television sets. Depending on the type
of television set, the door camera
image can be shown as a full
image or blended with the television programme running as an
“image in an image”.

Telecommunication
Whether as a fixed line, cordless
or mobile, with the Siedle DoorCom interface the telephone becomes a call station for the door
intercom. Nor does this restrict
you in your choice of door station,
as DoorCom works with all Siedle­
product series (with the sole
­exception of the Compact sets).
IP network
The DoorCom IP interface links
the door communication system with the main standards in
the world of IT: the LAN becomes a transmission route, the
PC the call station – with the
inclusion of video display, door
release, switching functions
and status messages.
Intelligent living
Siedle provides intelligently
networked buildings with the
appropriate building communication systems. A special interface
permits the exchange of communication and control signals
with the building’s automation
and entertainment systems from
leading manufacturers. In the
process, their visualization and
operating displays function as the
indoor station for the door and
building communication system.

Siedle’s development and production activities take place
exclusively in Furtwangen in the Black Forest. At the site of
our origins, we can be sure of reaching that optimal level
of quality that distinguishes a Siedle product. For the same
reason, we strive to keep as many as possible of our processing phases under our control. More than 80 per cent of
added value is achieved within Siedle’s own premises – this
contributes to quality assurance, but is also an expression
of responsibility for the location and the people there.
A company like Siedle is not just a direct employer – it also
helps to maintain regional economic cycles. We are convinced that industrial production is the only way to secure a
modern industrial location in the long term. Education and
services are becoming ever more important, but they can
never replace manufacturing as the engine of the economy.
If there are no customers for services and no labour market
for trained people, it will not be possible for these sectors
to maintain their high level either. In Furtwangen, young
people have an excellent range of educational establishments including an internationally renowned university.
This range of educational facilities can only be maintained
thanks to the manufacturing companies in the area. This
concept also applies to the remainder of the local infra-
structure and it is not just applicable to Furtwangen, but to
the whole of the country.
We acknowledge our responsibility and we take it seriously.
We expect the same from our suppliers and we appeal to
our partners in the trade to pay attention to where and
how the products they sell are actually manufactured.
We do everything in our power to manufacture competitive
products in Germany. This has never been easy and is certainly not getting any easier in a globalised economy. However, it
is possible if capable employees commit their creativity and
their efforts to this objective, rather than thinking about the
possible benefits of other locations. This is, in fact, the very
concept that supports the “Made in Germany” seal of quality, in that it has always stood for superior quality, which is
only possible because of the people who ensure that they
manufacture quality products every single day.
We want to highlight this relationship using three example areas in which it is particularly strong, namely in Modern Manufacture, in bespoke production and in the Service Department
which ensures that investment in a Siedle system remains
profitable for as long as possible. After all, this is just another
part of “Made in Germany” quality – the true costs are not
just the purchase price and of course it is possible to manufacture things elsewhere cheaper – but that is not everything.
Modern Manufacture
A specific kind of calm prevails in this part of the production
hall. If the atmosphere here were to be described in a single
word, then “care” would be a good choice.
In Modern Manufacture, work is undertaken with great care.
Although this might sound self-evident or old-fashioned, it
is actually highly efficient – and unique in the sector. The
combination of industrial processing quality and individual
craftsmanship makes it possible to achieve a degree of product differentiation without equal. The system created under
such extraordinary conditions is called Siedle Steel.
It is the high-end flagship product of our company. “Siedle
Steel is our answer to the increasingly expressed wish of
architects and developers to have an influence on the design of their communication system,” says Eberhard Meurer,
the head designer who developed Steel. “What is otherwise
only possible by means of individually designed solutions by
craftsmen, we manage to the degree of precision of an industrial production system.”
Of course, Modern Manufacture also makes use of machinery and automated systems. However, there is no other
Siedle product in which the human hand is as much in
evidence as in Siedle Steel. The fact is that perfection is
not only the result of highly-developed technology. What
makes Modern Manufacture stand out is the degree of
motivation resulting from an entirely human characteristic:
pride in one’s work.

For us, complying with specific customer
requirements is like rising to a challenge.
Martin Pietsch is Head of custom production and special
mechanical construction. Whatever cannot be implemented
using the standard production portfolio, he and his team
make possible.
was specifically designed to enable modernization projects.
This was how the Siedle Classic line came into being.
Have you received any special requests which struck you as
a little quirky, as it were?
Not really. Nonsensical requests generally never make
it through as far as to our department. We have a team
of competent specialist advisers in the field who head off
any such requests before they reach us. But I do recall that
one customer wanted a Vario system covered in synthetic
leather. It turned out not to be technically feasible, but we
did look into it. For us, complying with specific customer
requirements is like rising to a challenge.
Mr Pietsch, are special constructions always the result of
non-standard customer requests?
Usually, yes. Our job is to address those special requirements which exceed the capability of the standard product range. Examples include intercom systems mounted
at a height of 2.40 m which can be operated from truck
cabs, letterboxes capable of holding double the volume of
mail or fitted with an electronic unlocking function. However, the Special Construction Department does not design
completely new products. We only operate within the grid
framework of the underlying system. The unmistakable
face of Siedle always remains.
When does a special customized product become a standard product?
If there is a frequent demand for a certain type of customized product, we take a closer look at the market potential.
A typical example here is the combination frame which can
be used to install a new letterbox system from the Vario 611
series onto the concealed housing of the Vario 511 series.
We have produced this frame for a long period in the Special
Construction Department, and it has now become a series
product. We were very pleased about the high demand for
it, as we attach a high degree of importance to maintaining
and modernizing existing systems. This is part and parcel of
sustainable management. Why tear out and exchange existing equipment which can go on being used?
The term “sustainability” has become something of a buzz­
word recently. What do you understand by it?
For me, sustainability has to do with a long service life and
durability, with products for the next generation. The longer something can go on being used, the more sustainable
it is. What is the use of even the most eco-friendly product
if it only has a life cycle of one year? That is a sign of a
throw-away mentality parading under the environmental
protection banner. Instead, more importance should be attached to the term “long life”. I am not the only one who
thinks so; achieving long product cycles is one of Siedle’s
corporate objectives.
Is there one particular development you are especially
proud of?
Yes, there was one particular improvement suggestion which
culminated finally in the launch of the Siedle Classic­design
line. To exchange the widely popular door loudspeaker TL 111,
originally all we could offer were specially designed solutions
based on the Vario or Steel series. Then a new door station

Retained value and protecting investments
The Service Department is where decades of Siedle knowhow are carefully guarded – and where our customers’ investment is protected.
Siedle systems certainly are long-lived, but we are not in
the business of building pyramids. At some time or another,
repairs will be on the cards, spare parts will be needed. It is
when this time comes that a manufacturer is put to the real
test. Does the customer have to replace the whole system
or only the defective part? This can make a huge difference
of several thousand euros.
One of the questions we are asked most frequently in the
Service Department is how long do you go on repairing Siedle devices? The simplest and almost always most accurate
answer is longer than any others. However, in individual
cases it is essential to take a closer look. Which product is
affected? Are all the required parts still available? For a very
large number of products we create the conditions which
will allow them to go on being repaired for decades. For
others we make available up-to-date replacement devices.
What use are innovations if they are not compatible with
existing systems?
This approach is the very best type of sustainability. Even
systems which are 30 to 40 years old can generally be repaired. We consider ourselves as safe haven in the storm
of today’s short-lived communication market. Siedle will
always try to help and make available a replacement. Ge­
nerally we are successful, but not always. Sometimes even
our Service Department specialists fail, for example if certain electronic and mechanical components are simply not
around anymore today. But what is decisive here is not the
individual spare part, but the retained value of the system
as a whole. For instance, anyone with a 6+n system from
the 1960s will be able to procure up-to-date telephones
and door stations for it.
The work and expense involved, the condition of the
equipment, the fault pattern and frequency of failure are
all decisive criteria for making a decision between repair
and replacement.
We do not just carry out repairs, but our service personnel also provide our customers with advice because sometimes it is simply more economical to change over to a new
system. Siedle also offers a wealth of possibilities for this.
With the use of conversion kits and modern bus technology, existing housings and wiring can often continue to
be used.
The provision of parts, capacity and machinery to replace
products which have been in use for many years naturally
costs money. Yet the expense and effort is worthwhile. If
a customer contacts our Service Department, we can save
him a great deal of money. Siedle protects its customers’
investments. That is yet another reason not just to look at
the purchase price, but also at continuity. The true cost may
not become apparent for years and our Service Department employs people who have been working for Siedle
for more than 30 years. Their experience and knowledge
of equipment which has long been obsolete is invaluable.

Architecture at the threshold Care | With his whole heart
158
Horst Siedle sees himself as an entrepreneur and a
liberal. Baden-Württemberg’s Minister of the Eco­
nomy dubbed him “a shining example of the civic
society”. What turns the former into the latter is
the commitment to a higher purpose: responsibility.
“I am a citizen of the world, a European and a German −
but in my heart I belong to Furtwangen.” This was Horst
Siedle’s response to the question of where it was he felt
at home. And when one journalist wanted to know what
characterized the ideal employee, this was the answer he
got: “He is part of the company not only with his head, but
with his heart as well.” There is no better way of describing the entrepreneur, community politician, sponsor, donor
and art collector that is Horst Siedle. Everything he takes
on he undertakes with commitment, passion and conviction − with his whole heart. This is the only explanation for
his company producing exclusively in Furtwangen, in the
heart of the Black Forest. And this is why in Horst Siedle we
have an entrepreneur making every last effort for the land
of his birth.
A Furtwanger at heart
As in the story of the logistics centre commissioned in 1994.
Even before planning started, the head of the company
stipulated that the only location to be considered would
be Furtwangen. Many thought him mad, even within his
own company: a logistics centre miles from the motorway,
railway connection and airport! Siedle stuck by his decision
and this is how not only were 50 new jobs created, but
the employment and added value arising out of the construction work also remained in Furtwangen. Horst Siedle
understands loyalty to a location as part of the responsibility
incumbent on every company. For this convinced mediumsized operator, whether an entrepreneur is managing well is
more than just a matter of balance-sheet figures. While he
leaves no doubt that a company must operate at a profit,
profit must not become an end in itself. It must also serve
other purposes: people and the world they live in.
“If things are going well for Mr. Siedle, then things are
­going well for his people as well.” This is the simple formula put forward by a skilled employee when a TV team
asked him about the recipe for success binding the world
of Siedle together. The facts confirm this view. Nobody can
recall anyone ever being laid off for operational reasons.
Retaining jobs is anchored in place as the highest objective for company management. Since 1977, all employees
at Siedle have enjoyed a share of its profits. Once you have
been with the company for 10 years you are entitled to a
works pension, financed by the company. And anyone with
25 years of loyal service to the company is not only hon-
oured, but is enrolled as a member of the “Jubilee Club”. In
return for their unusually high benefits, employees respond
with outstanding loyalty. The person who is not treated as
a cost factor does not behave like one. The difference is
clear to see in, for example, sickness absentee figures, job
satisfaction and from the enjoyment and care people display in their work. Horst Siedle has always seen this connection and this explains why not only is he “the good soul
of Furtwangen”, as one business magazine described him,
but also a clever business manager who knows the value of
man as a production factor.
The history of this
family-run business can
be traced back over
seven generations and
more than 260 years.
159
Siedle is the market leader in Germany and in some parts of
Europe, with around 5 times as many employees − and 100
times the turnover.
Donor and collector
Since his serious illness, Horst Siedle has been passing the
management of the business increasingly over to his wife,
Gabriele. His life’s work is secured by a corporate policy
which maintains his values and convictions. The arrangements have also been made for the company’s long-term
succession − so is this the right time to relax into a peaceful
evening of his life? Anyone who thinks so does not know
Horst Siedle. He withdrew from community politics at the
age of 71, however, he still continues to support numerous
local associations and organizations. It was for this specific
reason that on the occasion of his 60th birthday he set up
the charitable Horst Siedle Foundation.
Today there is one old passion that occupies him more than
any other: the love of art. Over many years he has built
up an impressive collection of important works of classic
modernism and German expressionism. A large proportion
of this is on permanent loan to exhibitions all around the
world, as this passionate collector is firmly of the opinion
that outstanding works must be made accessible to the
public. To ensure that this remains the case, he and his wife
have set up the Horst and Gabriele Siedle Art Foundation.
The collection will eventually pass over to the Foundation,
along with the remit of ensuring its public display. And not
just anywhere, of course, but in Furtwangen. The Siedles
are giving thought to a suitable museum building, an appropriate concept and how this will be linked in with the
company. One can look forward with some anticipation to
the end result when Horst Siedle devotes himself even more
fervently to his beloved art. However, one thing is sure: it
will be undertaken with passion and commitment − with
his whole heart.

A great legacy, a proud report
The history of this family-run business can be traced back
over seven generations and more than 260 years, as far as
the foundry of Mathäus Siedle, who produced bells and
other construction components for the Black Forest clock
making industry. In the 19th century Siedle transformed
himself into a pioneer of electrical engineering and was one
of Germany’s first telephone manufacturers. At the start of
the 20th century the company was specializing in building
and door telephone systems, and this has remained its core
business to this day. The company has always remained in
the ownership and under the management of the family.
This has not been to the company’s disadvantage: an entrepreneur, especially one of the Siedle stamp, is more than just
a manager. He thinks in terms of generations as opposed to
quarterly reports, and sees ensuring a lasting presence as
more important than quick profits.
Horst Siedle has clearly shown that this approach in no way
excludes growth. In 1957 he joined a company generating
sales of 0.75 million euros with a workforce of 93. Today,
