In 1996, we emerged from a company which had previously been highly renowned for its laboratory machines and had been active on the market for 100 years. That company was Ruth Schwabenthan Maschinenfabrik and we consider ourselves the perfect successor to continue the product range of the time on the same market. Some loyal employees from the core workforce of the old company were actively involved in founding our new company. Setting out again after this hard break was tough, even though we had some crucial employees at the beginning who already had extensive and relevant experience from the previously mentioned Schwabenthan company to draw from. Since then, our company has had many of its own experiences and gathered its own expertise by successfully making an impressive number of machine designs a reality. Our customers not only come from Germany but are also increasingly from the rest of Europe and some are even from further afield right across the globe.
