40 Years Excellence in Electronics:


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. 

Today, we are one of the leading manufacturers of KNX products for the automation of commercial and private buildings. Our medium-sized company and our more than 100 employees stand for innovation, quality, and service. With a good 400 different KNX products, we offer one of the most comprehensive KNX product ranges on the market.
