Rixen International GmbH is a newly established legal entity. Its activities are based on Bruno Rixens ideas: to establish waterski and wakeboarding as a sport for everybody.

Bruno Rixen invented cable based waterskiing in the 1960s. With his patented invention he created a new sport: Waterskiing without a boat. Since than Bruno Rixen has been developing and building waterski and wakeboard cableways for more than 55 years.
With more than 300 Full-Size Cables and over 160 2-pylon systems, Bruno Rixen made important contributions to boost wakeboarding and waterskiing worldwide. Bruno Rixen´s revolutionary invention of the cableway in the year 1961 made all this possible!

Millions of riders call Bruno Rixen: the “cable god”.

In August 2018 Bruno Rixen decided to retire, since a perfect candidate for his succession was found. Dr. Richard Söhnchen, a passionate waterski fan bought the Rixen assets and built a new company to complement the Autision Group. A group of medium-sized companies in the field of automated inspection systems. Our group of legally independent companies supplies robotics, machine vision and optical measuring technology under a common umbrella. Our core area of expertise lies in the integration of Automation & vision, hence the name: Autision.
