From sole trader to global company in Germany, China and North America. Between tradition and high-tech, we have dedicated ourselves to the exciting pioneering work of exploiting the potential of innovative sensor technology from the idea to series production. In the process, the character of a family business is deeply rooted in our corporate culture.


CAPTRON can look back on more than three decades of steady growth and we are getting bigger and bigger. In 2019 we expanded our site in Olching and thus can offer more jobs in an even more modern and innovative space-utilization concept. Our corporate culture is characterized by long-term relationships that our employees maintain with our customers and partners.

We are reliable in what we say and do. As a 100% family-owned company, our employees can rely on CAPTRON remaining true to itself, its values and its principles. At CAPTRON, we focus on long-term and sustainable success, offer secure jobs and stand for a partnership based on fairness and personal respect. We are reliable in what we say and do. All these are reasons why our employees often remain loyal to the company for many years.


We always attach great importance to a relaxed, appreciative and inspiring working atmosphere in which everyone can get involved. Together we create something new and always have the goal in mind. This forms the basis for the distinctive CAPTRON team concept.

With regular activities, events, promotions and constantly evolving information and communication platforms, such as the monthly staff meeting, the employee newspaper and the CAPTRON intranet, we are expanding the company-wide networking and information exchange every day. A special feature of our international teams is that everyone addresses each other informally. Throughout our company, everyone is on a first-name basis. We are proud of our trust-based and respectful cooperation. For CAPTRON, integrity and ethics are two important corporate values, as is authenticity, which is a central element of our corporate culture.


As a growing, dynamic company, we offer exciting and varied tasks. Our employees tackle complex challenges with enthusiasm. We always work in a results-oriented manner and try to further improve our processes and workflows. With passion, highly motivated employees can make a contribution to the CAPTRON success story.


With flexible working hours, our employees can find a good balance between work and private life. Working time depends on the daily business and the range of work. With a 5-day week, all employees receive 30 days of vacation per year. Home office is possible and is agreed upon together with the manager and the team based on the scope of activity.


“Welcome to CAPTRON. We look forward to welcoming you as another team member at CAPTRON.”
To help you feel welcome with us from the start, get to know CAPTRON and its structures and departments as well as your new colleagues: Every new employee takes part in our onboarding program and has the opportunity to get to know the new working environment step by step. During onboarding, we are happy to answer the most important questions about CAPTRON, our values and principles, products, quality, processes, training courses and much more.


CAPTRON is a healthy company in two ways. Continuous and sustainable growth plays a central role for us. Because our employees are our most important asset. It is therefore very important to us to offer our employees a healthy working environment and pleasant working atmosphere.

Our in-house fitness area at the headquater in Olching provides state-of-the-art equipment. For a small fee, employees can work out there before or after work from Monday to Friday. In addition, we offer daily 5-minute flexibility exercises to promote the health of our employees.


We are all aware that after we retire the statutory pension will not be sufficient to achieve the income we currently receive. In order to help our employees, we support them from the 7th month of employment with an employer participation scheme. You can choose between the classic investment form of capital-forming benefits or a conversion to a employer-founded pension scheme.


To ensure that daily tasks can be mastered in the best possible way, we provide our employees with the opportunity to keep their know-how and skills up to date. We seek to support our employees through further education and training courses based on agreed goals.


It gives us great pleasure to support young people in finding the perfect entry into professional life. With the start of everyday working life, a new phase of life begins, which brings challenges and changes. Good training offers excellent career prospects. It is the first step toward developing professionally as well as personally. It is precisely in this development that we want to make our contribution by promoting our young employees and offering perspectives, because we think about the future of CAPTRON and are looking for our specialists and managers of tomorrow.


Everyone can always rely on strong team spirit in their daily work. Inspiring people with our products and services is our common goal. This requires many different work steps, in which everyone can contribute according to their skills and talents. Always with the common goal in mind, to create great things for our customers.

This self-confidence and mutual trust form the basis for the collegial support and enable successful work at CAPTRON.
