About us

Powered by curiosity – the best for you! Get to know us.


Neoception was founded in 2017 as an IT consultancy by the Pepperl+Fuchs Group and has developed into a relevant IT service provider for the design of digital process optimization in the industrial environment. Our headquarters are in Mannheim, surrounded by an excellent infrastructure – both in terms of transport and to some of our partners and large tech companies. In addition, we have another development site in the north of Portugal, surrounded by the beautiful Douro Valley and connected to one of the country’s best universities in the field of software development. Innovative and equal cooperation with our customers and partners is the key to our success. As a spin-off of the Pepperl+Fuchs Group, our customers benefit from many years of experience in shop floor processes, industrial sensor technology and automation. This knowledge is used by our team, consisting of highly qualified experts in process consulting, software development, project management and business development, to make a real difference in IIoT applications. Together, we are shaping the future of digital process optimization.


When establishing Neoception, we embarked on an extensive brainstorming process, generating around 400 ideas in search of the perfect name. We faced the challenge of finding an available .de and .com domain while also capturing the essence of our vision. After careful consideration, we arrived at a shortlist of 15 names, with Neoception emerging as the prime candidate for our new venture. 

But what led us to choose this unique name?

Neoception derives its name from the fusion of two elements, each representing a vital aspect of our identity.
The prefix “Neo-” originates from the Greek language, symbolizing novelty, youthfulness, and freshness. It embodies our commitment to staying at the forefront of emerging technologies and trends, ensuring we deliver innovative solutions to our clients.

The second part of our name, “-ception,” draws inspiration from our background in data science. Some of our managing directors, have deep roots in this field. It is a nod to the Perceptron, one of the pioneering algorithms in the realm of machine learning.

Our logo not only serves as our visual identity but also encapsulates the spirit of Neoception.

The green square in the logo holds special significance. This square represents our strong bond with our parent company, Pepperl+Fuchs.
It serves as a testament to our origins and where we come from. P+F, with its established business, follows a straightforward path, while Neoception, as the innovator, introduces a fresh perspective by shaking things up within this square. Innovating new businesses which will be adapted by P+F core business.

This symbiotic relationship allows us to collaborate closely, bridging the gap between tradition and innovation.

As a fun aside, Neoception holds a playful connection to some beloved movies that many of us might appreciate.
It could be interpreted as a fusion of “Neo,” the protagonist from a certain iconic film, and “ception,” hinting at a mind-bending movie centered around dreams.

We’ll leave it to you to uncover which movies these references allude to!
