About us

MDT has been developing and producing electrical products for almost 40 years

 

We are the KNXperts

Today, MDT is one of the leading manufacturers of KNX products for the automation of commercial and private buildings. Our company and our employees stand for top quality and user-oriented thinking. With a good 400 different KNX products, we offer one of the most comprehensive KNX product ranges on the market. A wealth of intelligent functions in the products offer the users tangible added value.

We have been developing and manufacturing electronic products in Engelskirchen for 40 years. Founded in 1984 as MCI, the first twenty-five years of business commenced with the development and production of personal computers, RAM and PC accessories. As of from 1996 we focused on the production of RAM components for PCs and on the development and continuous optimisation of its extremely flexible production process. True to the motto at that time, “ordered in the morning - delivered in the evening”.

In 2005, we were officially renamed from MCI to MDT technologies, as the brand name of the main memory was increasingly being equated to the company name. In 2009 we initiated and launched the development and production of our first KNX products. The initial 29 products introduced to the market included, a binary input with an integrated logic function - a product combination that was an innovation to the market in 2009. Since 2009, we exclusively develop and produce KNX products. 

The constant further development of our product range guarantees that we always have high-quality and innovative products. We are one of the most innovative SMEs in Germany and, among other things, we have been awarded the TOP 100 innovation prize for German SMEs for the ninth time in a row. Our innovative product range is complemented with first-class support and personal contact with our customers. Our KNXperts would be happy to help you with any questions or problems.

2024
40 Years Excellence in Electronics

We are celebrating our company anniversary! For over 40 years, we at MDT have been developing and manufacturing electronical products.

2022
New branding

In recent years, MDT has noticeably grown as a manufacturer of innovative KNX products. In order to strengthen our brand and support the internationalisation of the company, we have modernised our logo and the entire branding. The fresh design and the modern logo are seamlessly tied to their predecessors and therefore guarantee that our brand will be recognised.

2019
Extension to the main building

In order to meet the growing demand for KNX products, we expanded our company headquarters in our native Engelskirchen with an extension, which we put into operation in 2019. The new building has increased production and administration capacity by 50%.

2009
First MDT KNX product range

Since 2009, we have exclusively manufactured KNX products. The first range featured XY products. These included binary inputs with integrated logic function – a combination that had not previously existed in any product. Today, we continue to bring new, innovative products to the market.

2005
New company name

The brand name of our working memory was increasingly equated with the company name, which is why we decided to officially change the company’s name from MCI to MDT technologies in 2005.

1996
Flexible working memory production

Computer production was discontinued at the end of 1996. From then onwards, we exclusively produced working memory for PCs. During this phase, our extremely flexible production processes were established because the company aimed for an order placed in the morning to be delivered the same evening.

1984
Foundation

Today, MDT is known as a manufacturer of leading KNX products. However, MDT had already been operating in the electrical and electronics market for more than 25 years before it started producing KNX components. Since our foundation in 1983, we had produced personal computers and working memory trading under the name MCI.

MDT as a driving force of innovation

We always have our finger on the pulse of the market

The founding idea behind the MDT KNX range emerged on a private building site: “A KNX actuator like this must be able to do more!”. This was followed by laborious development, after which our own first KNX range was launched onto the market. To this day, the core idea of offering the user more functionality runs throughout the entire product range at MDT.

We have put together a selection of products, which when launched contained new functions that had never before been available on the KNX market.
