Read about the thrilling history of BAUR GmbH
BAUR looks back at an eventful company history. What began 75 years ago as a small family-owned set-up, is one of today's leading international companies in the field of testing and measurement technology. BAUR counts most of the energy providers in the world among its satisfied customers.
Since 1945, when Josef Baur established the "physical and technical workshops" with three employees in his father’s old embroidery building, passion for technology has been his motivation. His extensive experience in radio and broadcasting technology was a big contribution to his young company. He built the first battery radio receiver in Vorarlberg when he was just 14. The first customer of the fledgling company was the City of Vienna with its order for a custom-made design for a highly sensitive mine detector.
