Who is Anton Paar?

Anton Paar grows from the 100 year-old tradition of the company. The person of Anton Paar, the founder of the company, is still represented in the name of today’s global corporation which is situated in Graz-Straßgang. The history of the company started in the year 1922 with the installation of a one-man-locksmith’s shop in Graz Heinrichstraße. Meanwhile the company is led by the fourth generation of the family, employing over 3.800 people worldwide and having gained the position of the world market leader in the field of high precision measuring devices. How strong the self-perception of the global corporation of today is still influenced by the history of the company, can be seen when taking a look at the corporate culture.
