A FULL-SERVICE PROVIDER WITH TRADITION

THERMOMETERS & HYDROMETERS FROM A TO Z

Since 1910 the name ”Ludwig Schneider“ has been synonymous with the highest quality and precision ”Made in Germany“. Everything started back then with the development of high-quality temperature measuring instruments. Today we are one of the leading global manufacturers of high-precision measuring technology for temperature and density. Together with one of the most extensive ranges of products and our modern accredited calibration laboratory we offer our customers an all-round service that is almost unique in the industry.

Thermometers and hydrometers from Ludwig Schneider GmbH & Co. KG are used all over the world and numerous companies rely on the high precision of our instruments. In order to keep on fulfilling this demand in the future we cooperate closely with our customers and suppliers. This results in innovative solutions that convince both technically and economically – today and tomorrow.

 

PRECISION WORK SINCE 1910

Benjamin Schneider began developing thermometers as early as 1910. Given his manual skills and his wealth of ideas, he developed high quality instruments for leading industrial companies and scientific establishments right from the start. His first-rate products substantiated his excellent reputation in industry and research. Ever since, the number of customers who put their faith in the high precision of Schneider has been steadily growing.


In 1954, production was relocated to Wertheim. With this move, the cornerstone for modern production plants and further dynamic growth of the company was laid. Even now, precise measurement of temperature and density is one of the most important tasks of measurement technology - not least for environmental protection and energy provision, which have gained growing significance over the last few decades.


Then, as now, the common goal is to produce highly precise instruments for measuring temperature and density. A task to which the fourth generation has dedicated itself every bit as much as their predecessors did.
