Autexis emerged from Hauser Steuerungstechnik AG, which was founded by Theo Hauser in 1982. Hauser Steuerungstechnik's portfolio included intelligent automation solutions ranging from consulting and project planning to the implementation of process automation and MES systems. In order to manage his succession, Hauser handed over the management of the company to Philippe Ramseier in 2012, who took over the majority of the shares in the following year as part of a management buyout. In 2015, the company was reorganized and the business was organized into two separate companies. Autexis Control AG on the one hand implements intelligent automation solutions for its customers, while Autexis IT AG offers IT and mobile solutions including consulting, strategy development and training on Smart Factory. Both companies are united under the umbrella of Autexis Holding AG. In 2020, Autexis and the Rotzinger Group entered into a strategic partnership under which Rotzinger acquired a minority stake in Autexis Holding.
