Growth needs
roots and visions


The company founder, Peter M. Binder, marked a milestone in laboratory technology in 1983 with the development of the hot air sterilizer. Within the space of just three decades, BINDER has established itself as an innovative company with above-average growth and outstanding future prospects.

We ensure our independence as a family company by maintaining our consistent premium brand strategy, continuing to develop our production capacity at our German site, and internationalizing our sales activities. As well as working with our core markets in Europe, we are taking advantage of the opportunities in growth markets all over the world.

We are part of the whole

Our fundamental goal is to offer a substantial technical contribution to improve the health and safety of mankind!

This ambitious goal starts with our core business of supporting demanding laboratory and research work with outstanding environmental simulation chambers but it does not end there:

As well as our international core business, we also do our bit for the region and the community. We support projects involving art, culture, and sport, and are committed to the environment, research, and training specialists for the long term. With our total commitment, we want to be a role model for other sponsors of our region!


Our responsibility

For over 30 years, we have been offering our customers more and more when it comes to first-class performance. When it comes to the environment, however, we follow the motto "less is more".

Ecology and protecting resources do not just determine the development and production of our environmental simulation chambers, but also all of our corporate activities.

BINDER Laboratory Technologies

  • APT.line™: Unique tempering principle with Advanced Preheating Technology
