Technology in the sense of the environment

Since 1991, innovative technology developments have driven our commitment to protecting the environment and people in a sustainable way. Through our solutions to complex analytical challenges, we strive to make the world a better place. Our high-quality measuring instruments are manufactured in Germany and support operators of industrial plants worldwide in complying with emission limits to ensure health and safety. They also monitor various processes in order to sustainably reduce the consumption of resources.

As the FÖDISCH Group with 230 employees, we utilise synergies to develop customised solutions for a wide range of measurement and automation tasks in the energy, air and water sectors. Our aim is to maximise customer benefits and to deploy our solutions worldwide.
