Searching for the best possible measurement systems right from the start

When Udo Steppe established his company in 1967, no one could have imagined the face of the world a few decades later. Searching for the best possible solution has always been the key impetus of Udo Steppe and his team right from the start. By now we can look back to a couple of milestones we have set in the world of level measurement and flow measurement.

None of our successful past and our international growth, however, have changed our ambition to provide the best possible measurement systems. Quite the opposite, it is what we achieved in the past that spurs us most for the future. Even today we spare no effort to provide the best technology for the future. You can count on it.
