Our products help to save time and resources, protect the environment, the health of humans and to increase the value of goods and services.
The history: a success story since 1957
From its beginnings as a small manufacturer of temperature measuring instruments, today Testo is a global concern. Testo has a presence on all continents, with 30 subsidiaries and more than 80 trade partners. An average annual growth of over 10 % since founding in 1957, and a current turnover of just short of a quarter of a billion Euros impressively demonstrate that the Upper Black Forest and high-tech systems go perfectly together. Testo has a strategy of sustainable and profitable growth, and not least the extraordinary commitment of the staff, to thank for this success. Roughly 2,500 Testorians worldwide research, develop, produce and market for the company with passion and expertise.
The perspectives: onwards with strength from within
The above-average investments in the future are a part of the firm's recipe for success. Testo invests approximately a tenth of the annual turnover worldwide on Research & Development, consolidating its position as a leading specialist in the field of portable and stationary measurement technology. Whether in agile project management or the attention to megatrends such as the internet of things – dynamics and orientation to the future characterize Testo. This is one of the reasons the company is regularly awarded the title of one of the most innovative medium-sized firms in Germany. To maintain this leading position, Testo places great value on training young people and ensuring the next generation of experts and management staff – for example with a classical apprenticeship, the professional entry program VIA after a Master's degree or various programs of further training.
