The roots of our innovation.

In the 1980s, Fred Blake, created the very first photosensor. He founded Multipoint Control and patented his sensor design. Fred sold his company to his friend and colleague Fred Dittmann, who was operating a controls manufacturing company at the time. In 1991, Fred Dittmann formed PLC Multipoint, which he operated together with his son Norm. Today, PLC Multipoint’s products and services reach a wide range of markets, serving a multitude of customers. Our Sensors, Buildings, and Transportation Divisions have each been serving various market segments and our customer base for over 30 years.
