The origin of the company was more than 130 years ago. Anton Ullrich’s idea of joining several sections to a folding rule with a rivet hinge gave the impulse to found the company. This ingenious idea was to determine the future of the company which is owned by the family still today. After further important innovations and the development of the spring hinge, Gustav Ullrich, the nephew of Anton Ullrich, founded a company that exclusively produced measuring tools. Today this company – meanwhile grown up to the middle-class company STABILA – is selling high quality measuring tools in more than eighty countries world-wide, and its continual innovation power allows to develop and produce new and practical measuring tools.

The name STABILA as well as the product quality are the basis for the company’s success. To take these high quality requirements into account, STABILA is backing a high production intensity, which means to assure that even the smallest parts are of high quality, too, and to carry through regular quality controls during the manufacturing process. Most modern manufacturing techniques as well as strict quality checks are part of the company’s standard. STABILA is certified according to ISO 9001.

According to the today’s requirements on the building suite, it is not only folding rules and spirit levels that leave the factory today, but also measuring tapes and above all laser levelling units. These products are developed by a team of developing engineers and own application technicians as well as with the help of the craftsmen’s experience.

By far most of the products distributed by STABILA are produced in Annweiler still today. The folding rules are manufactured in the Czech Republic in a factory that is owned by STABILA and was built 25 years ago.
