KERN & SOHN, the oldest precision balances factory in Germany

Company profile

KERN & SOHN GmbH, based in Balingen/Baden-Württemberg, stands for high precision and reliability as well as a wide range of scales, microscopes and measuring instruments. Company founder Gottlieb Kern developed the most accurate scales by the standards of the time in Baden-Württemberg in 1844. In the company's more recent history, measuring instruments such as refractometers and durable and ergonomic microscopes have been added to the product portfolio. Together with test weights, testing services and software, they complete the portfolio and qualify KERN as a high-performance full-service provider for measuring and weighing technology.
