Combining Tradition with Innovation

The company was founded in August of 1970 by its owner, Mr. Manfred Tews, and started the business by selling scientific calculators during the first years.
    
From this beginning EDP-based data collecting and evaluating systems were developed for laboratories and hospitals. In the mid 70's the development of process-control-computers for customer-specific applications in the wide field of process automation was started.

Beginning with 1985 the company TEWS Elektronik became the exclusiv representativ for a selection of moisture measuring systems in Northern Germany. The development of the first instrument based on microwave technology started in the late 80´s.

1991 the first powerful microwave measuring instrument was available, which works after the patented TEWS Elektronik method.

In the year 1997 the programm of labratory and process instruments was expanded by an additional online measuring technique with planar sensors.

As of 1999, the well proven 2-series models have been succeeded by the faster and more powerful models of the 3-series.

Today, the portfolio of TEWS Elektronik includes six different microwave measuring devices to meet high level requirements. The latest development is a mobile, battery powered microwave moisture measuring device.

With the addition of André Tews to the management body the foundation was laid for the continuation of TEWS Elektronik in the 2nd generation. Manfred Tews and Andre Tews will run the business together in the future.
