The foundation for today’s Retsch Technology GmbH was laid in 1998 when a new business unit was created within the RETSCH GmbH. This unit added a new component to the traditional product range for sample preparation and characterization of solids: optical particle measurement.

In 2000, the business unit was hived off into an independent company. Retsch Technology GmbH is situated in Haan near Duesseldorf and, just like RETSCH GmbH, belongs to the Verder Scientific Division of the VERDER group.

Retsch Technology offers self-developed, high quality optical systems for the determination of particle size distribution and particle shape.
