From small electrical store to global player
"You could invent something new every day" - Our founder Ernst Ruhstrat
This saying could often be heard from our founder Ernst Ruhstrat. Born on October 10, 1863 as the son of Dr. Adolf Wilhelm Conrad Ruhstrat, a physicist in Göttingen, who had recognized the effect of electromagnetism on human life at an early age and used electricity in his medical practice, he learned to work with electrotechnical apparatus from a young age. No wonder Ernst trained as a mechanic. 
The motto of our founder is still an important part of our corporate philosophy today and embodies our innovative strength to continuously discover new market segments and market niches that we can serve with our industrial furnace systems as well as the associated process technology.
This continuous market orientation enables us to offer high-quality as well as innovative products and processes that inspire our customers.
