BAREISS was founded in 1954 by Mr. Henry Bareiss. The company has been committed to research and development innovations for many years, with core technology at the center, including the production of hardness measuring instruments for testing elastomers and other soft elastomers. A strong industry advantage for Bareiss is that we manufacture up to 95% of the product components in-house. Our professional experience in unique modular design of products can effectively save manpower, time and money, if and when any components need to be replaced or repaired. Our research and development team can assist our customers in building an instrument based on their customized needs and budget. Because of our leading position in the industry, BAREISS has become the first official DKD calibration laboratory in Germany and the first instrument manufacturer that can issue DKD certificates.
