The industrial activities and company history of the ASSMANN family was started in the 18th century. ASSMANN & Söhne did produce at that time metal buttons for the clothing industry and as well medal decorations for the military. Later on in the 20th century ASSMANN & Söhne became famous for being one of the pioneers for heat sink technology. ASSMANN & Söhne and another company named ASSMANN KG was established in 1969. Dieter Assmann started this company and his activities focused on the development and production of IC sockets and IDC connectors for flat cable applications. In the 80's Dieter Assmann combined and controlled both product groups, the heat sink and the connectors, in the company ASSMANN GmbH, which became later the ASSMANN Electronic GmbH. During these times, another product segment was developed, computer and network peripherals. This business realized tremendous growth under the leadership of the sons. Today the company, Assmann WSW focuses on a number of connector solutions covering almost every application in the electronics industry.
