The Straubenhardt-based former Vester Electronik GmbH was founded in 1968 as a family business and has been part of the Kistler Group since 25 August 2017. It has been operating under the company name Kistler Straubenhardt GmbH since 2020.
The company's focus is on the production of high-quality optoelectronic sensors for control and process monitoring in the field of stamping and forming technology, image processing-supported automated testing and sorting systems for 100-percent inspection as well as laser marking systems.
With the acquisition of Vester Elektronik GmbH, the Kistler Group was able to expand its portfolio of dynamic measurement technology to include optical testing systems for quality assurance and optoelectronic sensors. The areas of application for Kistler's extensive range of products thus extend from stamping technology through turning and plastic parts to mass production in the automotive industry or medical technology.
The former Vester Elektronik GmbH benefits from the global corporate structure of the Kistler Group, which enables effective internationalisation of the company, which was previously active exclusively in Germany. Customers benefit from the Kistler Group's worldwide service and sales network.
