Company chronicle

The family-owned company Schaller Messtechnik GmbH can look back on a long history dating back to the year of its founding in 1995. During these years, many advances have been achieved, developments have been implemented and success has been made visible with the help of our employees. This success is now also reflected worldwide, making Schaller Messtechnik one of the global leaders in the field of moisture measurement technology for biomass, but also in the field of paper and pulp technology.

Thanks to the close cooperation with our renowned partner institutes of the Technical Universities in Graz, Vienna and Munich, we have always been able to focus on the further development and improvement of our measuring instruments to offer optimal solutions to our customers' challenges. Our team in production, development and sales has been able to transform this commitment to building up comprehensive know-how in all aspects of moisture measurement technology into an outstanding product portfolio.

This success is also reflected in a European patent for a completely new and highly efficient approach to determining the water content of biomass, which forms the basis of the humimeter BMA instrument series.  The constant innovative orientation and the endeavour to find the best possible solution for the challenges of our customers is the passion, but also the success that accompanies us into the future.
