History of Anton Paar

The Anton Paar Group was originated in the year 1922 by the master locksmith Mr. Anton Paar who began a one-man machine repair workshop. Within a short span of time, he earned a reputation for his excellent work which led to the establishment of contacts with various universities and research institutes.

The first female master locksmith in Styria

In 1920s, Anton Paar began training his daughter, Margarete Platzer and in 1932 she acquired the position of the first female master locksmith in Styria thereby enabling her to follow her father's footsteps. Unmatched Know-How and expertise in high-precision mechanics along with unique skills in high-grade production and knowledge of Prof. Otto Kratky led to the formation of the company's first scientific and analytical instrument- the Kratky Small Angle X-ray Camera. Today, this instrument is still the most demanded measuring system of its type.

Innovative spirit as foundation

Ulrich Santner, son-in-law of Margarete Platzer was appointed as the CEO of the company in 1963. With his innovative and determined spirit he started with the subsequent expansion of the company in the realm of measuring technology. Further, he fostered the relationships with research institutes and universities and successfully developed a streamlined approach for converting technology from research to the industry. Being a loyal citizen, he was able to establish a widespread international network which helped him showcase various innovative products in the world market. During his tenure, company expanded immensely from 20 to more than 120 employees and registered an annual turnover of 10 million euros from 300,000 euros.

Since the year 2002 he has remained the CEO of Anton Paar. Right from the start, he has focused on building subsidiaries to manage sales across the globe. Under his leadership, several new sales as well as service subsidiaries were established and have acquired companies with complementary measuring technologies. Continuous emphasis on R&D, more than 20% of the the company's turnover is invested in research and development, further justifies that Anton Paar is capable of further expansion and strengthening position of world leader in the domain of measuring technology. During his tenure, the total turnover of the company has increased twenty fold while the employees strength increased from 130 to 2200.
