Welcome to our core story

At Struers we have ensured certainty and helped our customers excel for more than 148 years. Our focus has been materialography and today we are the global leader within this field. But why is this? What is it, that separates us from our competitors?

The essence of the Struers brand is encapsulated in our vision, values, purpose, image, and mission. Each of these parts guide our actions, for example when we improve products and services, or develop new ones; when we serve our customers; how we behave as an organization; and the way we contribute to the betterment of society and our environment.

Why we are here

In the wake of industrialization, our founder, Holger F. Struer, saw the need for developing research capabilities based on chemical analysis, and founded Struers in 1875.
Ever since, it has been our goal to exploit deep scientific insights to develop ground-breaking technologies and solutions, which contribute to improve our lives and make the world a better place.

To this day, we continue to pursue this ambition in our efforts to grow the Struers business and our contributions to modern society, by partnering with our customers in their exploration of materials, pursuit of safe products and sustainable use of natural resources.
