Over 120 years of quality
Our company was founded in 1896 in order to produce high precision measuring instruments and was later run under the name Glastechnische Werkstätte W. Eichhorn. From the very beginning the fabrication of spirit level vials was one of the main fields of the production.
The technical possibilities and production methods have evolved continuously over time. This led to an expanding product range not only regarding spirit level vials. CNC-milling, CNC-turning and injection moulding have been standard procedures in our company for many years. Therefore, many models of glass (circular) spirit levels vials have been replaced or added by plastic vials.
In 1991, the company was converted into a limited liability company and has been operating under the name Glas- und Meßtechnik GmbH Dieter Eichhorn since then. This is how the abbreviated name GME, which we use in our logo, was born. Today, Ralf Eichhorn leads the family business in the fourth generation.
Even though the last decades brought many innovations with them, one thing will always remain the same: the demand to produce high-quality products for our corporate customers. In doing so, we do not only rely on our expertise, but we also profit from more than 120 years of experience. This way, we will also be able to provide you with the best quality in the years to come.
