If there was a phrase to put our philosophy in a nutshell, it would be «closer to you» – in a very comprehensive sense of the phrase.

Our instruments and services are not available from dealers. It is always you and your local Metrohm sales representative, service engineer, or application specialist. They speak your language, they are professionals like you, and more likely than not, you may have known them for years.

Unparalleled expertise and application know-how

The Metrohm Foundation

Berthold Suhner - Founder of Metrohm

In today’s fast-moving global economy, companies and brands are bought and sold on short notice – with unpredictable consequences for customers as well as employees. This cannot happen to Metrohm.

We have been owned by the Metrohm Foundation since 1982. The Metrohm Foundation, which does not have any influence on the company’s business operations, sponsors students in the natural sciences, supports charitable and philanthropic purposes and, above all, safeguards the independence of the Metrohm company.

Bertold Suhner (1910–1988), founder of Metrohm AG.
