Quality always triumphs – The Metrohm story

Metrohm is one of the world’s most trusted manufacturers of high-precision instruments for chemical analysis.

Founded in 1943 by Bertold Suhner in Herisau, Switzerland, Metrohm has grown to an international company that supplies its products in more than 80 countries through more than 37 own subsidiaries and numerous exclusive distributors.


Staying true to who we are – Our values

Metrohm hq building banner

Metrohm is still firmly rooted where it was founded: in Herisau, Switzerland.

This is where most of our analytical instruments are engineered, designed, developed, and produced. We believe in doing things right: That’s why we produce as much as possible ourselves, from the hardware to the software, the printed circuit boards and finally the sensors, separation columns, and accessories. This allows us to ensure consistent quality across our portfolio and the different components of our instruments.
