When it all began
When Prof. Dr. Rudolf Berthold set up his laboratory in a former hotel in Bad Wildbad in 1949, nobody could guess what an exciting journey we were about to embark on.
Today, more than 70 years later, we are grateful for the trust that our customers have put in us and proud to work with them to improve life in meaningful ways.
