Your partner when it comes to temperatures !

In 1961, Mr. Dr. Mennicken founded the company "Dr. Hans L.Mennicken". The focus was the representation of an English company with temperature controllers and monitoring devices. A small repair department for these devices was also built up.

In 1962 the delivery programm was extended with complete switchgear ans control systems.

In 1979 a production facility for temperature sensors was set up and the repair departement, which had exist since 1961, was expanded to include all current temperature controllers, recorders, time relays and measuring devices. Restrictions were made for complete switchgear and control systems construction. In the same year, the delivery program was extended to all current German temperature controllers, writers, time relays, measuring devices and related accessories for the absence of the representative of the English company.

In 1974 a transformation into Dr. Mennicken KG took place.

In 1980 a division of the company was carried out. Dr. Mennicken GmbH took over the production and sales of Dr. Mennicken KG. In the same year Mr. Ulrich Ellinghaus became managing Director.

In 2007 Mr. U. Ellinghaus was replaced by the managing directors Nils and Jens Ellinghaus.  The production area for temperature sensors has experienced a steady upswing since then, which is ultimately attributable to our strengths such as quality, reliability, flexibility, speed and cost-effectiveness.

In order to assure our customers of these characteristics which are important for our existence in the future, the certification according to DIN EN ISO 9002 has become a very important component for us. Already in 1995 we received the certificate by RW TÜV.  In 2002, our system was converted to processor orientation in order to be certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001: 2000.

Since 2009 we have been certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001: 2008 and strive for constant and contemporary development and updating of this certificate (DIN EN ISO 9001: 2015).
