On the 1st of July 1949, Mr Heinrich Burghart founded the company under his name in Hamburg-Blankenese. The original focus area Tabaktechnik, resp. the production of laboratory devices for the cigarette industry, was expanded with the production of medical devices in 1990. This business area was and is growing continuously. In order to meet the steady growth and increasing complexity of the medical devices production, it was decided to split up this business area by today’s Burghart Messtechnik GmbH. In 2015 the mother company Heinrich Burghart Elektro- und Feinmechanik GmbH unfortunately had to shut down their business forever. As a complete independent company Burghart Messtechnik GmbH is not affected from the insolvency. Still in family ownership, Burghart Messtechnik GmbH is operated in third generation by Dipl. Ing. Torsten Burghart today.
