With this in mind, K&R has been producing precision mechanical instruments such as compasses, anemometers, altimeters, pedometers and much more since 1920. They are aimed at those who know that extreme precision is the prerequisite for exceptional reliability. Our products provide navigation and safety, in order to better understand the world through the most accurate measurements. And this is also how K&R operates: based on the fundaments of precision, reliability and experience, K&R is constantly seeking innovative solutions for better products, with curiosity and creativity.
Kasper & Richter was founded in 1920 to construct and manufacture precision mechanical instruments. The first customers came from industry and measured diopters (with spherometers) or paint coating thickness (with paint thickness meters) with instruments from Kasper & Richter. K&R quickly made a name for itself among experts, and quality instruments for private customers such as map measuring devices and pedometers were added to the range.
The company, based in Uttenreuth, Germany, is owned by the Rühlemann family since 1966, and sees itself as a down-to-earth company that knows how to combine modern service, many years of accumulated know-how and creative engineering artistry.
