PLC2 Programmable Logic Competence Center GmbH
In 1995 Eugen Krassin founded the engineering office Dipl.-Ing. Eugen Krassin PLC2 with his wife Andrea Krassin. FPGA technology was making rapid progress at that time and FPGAs were becoming more and more accepted in the industry, which consequently increased the demand for developers trained in FPGAs.

In about the same period Xilinx started to establish the ATP (Authorized Training Partner) program. PLC2 then became the world's first ATP from Xilinx.

With the increasing performance of FPGAs, this technology was opening up more new fields, and as the importance of FPGAs grew, so did the engineering office. From initially only a few training courses, PLC2 has developed numerous new training courses within a very short time. 

In order to support further business development, the number of employees was regularly enlarged. In 2001 the new company building in Freiburg-Opfingen was constructed. 

The strongly rising revenue numbers have led to the restructuring of the engineering office. Since 2007 the successor company of the engineering office is PLC2 GmbH. 

From the initial four training courses, today more than 80 training courses in the field of FPGAs have been established. Many new concepts, ideas and brand names have been incorporated into the new and ongoing development of the training courses (Power Workshop, EasyStart, Shorties and many more). PLC2 GmbH has also excelled as an organizer of seminars and technical congresses over the years.  

In 2015, the next generation took over. Two years later the company PLC2 Design was founded to develop the best possible designs for customers. This was followed by the foundation of the joint venture Aristos GmbH. In 2019 PLC2 Design was awarded with funding from the program "Spitze auf dem Land - Technologieführer für Baden-Württemberg". In order to be able to do justice to the Swiss market, PLC2 Suisse GmbH was founded in the very same year. 

In addition to the two business areas of professional training and customer-specific project development in the embedded market, the company is focusing on the creation of its own products. The main emphasis here is on the production of high-performance video grabbing and data logger solutions. 

Currently, in 2020, the new construction of a second company building in Endingen is another cornerstone for the future in order to continue to be one of the leading companies in the industry in the coming future.
