90 Years of Sample Preparation with RETSCH


A renowned German manufacturer and supplier of products for the preparation and characterization of solids, RETSCH GmbH, celebrate their 90th anniversary this year. Founded by F. Kurt Retsch in 1915 the company, located near Duesseldorf, soon turned into one of the leading suppliers of laboratory mills and particle analysers for sample preparation and quality control. With affiliates in the US and Japan and more than 70 distributors worldwide, RETSCH has a strong presence in all international markets.

The company's philosophy is based on customer orientation and leading edge technology. True to the principle of the Greek philosopher Aristotle, "The whole is more than the sum of its parts", RETSCH develops instruments whose high-quality components are designed for perfect interaction. Thus, they not only guarantee representative and reproducible results for grinding and particle analysis but also allow for easy and comfortable operation. Through continuous cooperation and exchange with universities, research institutes and customers from various sectors of industry, RETSCH makes sure that the instruments are state-of-the-art technology and increase customer benefits.

Service is an important issue for RETSCH. The free-of-charge grinding and particle analysis of samples supplied by customers as part of the application consultation has a long tradition. In time for the anniversary RETSCH has extended and completely refurbished the application laboratory thus ensuring high-quality service to continue in the future.
