Time to celebrate - 40th birthday for UWT

Teamwork & creativity for innovative measurement technology since 1977

UWT GmbH Level Control, Betzigau, this month celebrated 40 years of designing and manufacturing continuous level measurement and point level detection technology. The sensors are for use in many applications, such as loading, storing, mixing, blending or packing from various industries. As a German small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) and family run business, for the past years the sensor manufacturer has become a world‘s competent partner for level measurement technology. A company reaches such a position only if the following key elements interact: Sound management, good understanding of the needs of the markets, innovative product solutions, skillful investment and above all, committed and dedicated employees.

On 1st December the UWT team celebrated the company’s 40th anniversary with over 200 guests in the beautiful setting of the Kornhaus Kempten. The festive ambience and the varied supporting programs made this a truly entertaining and memorable evening.

Founded in 1977 by Peter and Gerda Schropp as “UWT Apparate GmbH” the company got off the ground with its rotating paddle limit switch Rotonivo® - the first one of its kind specifically for handling bulk solid materials. When they started with the development no one could have foreseen the unparalleled success story that followed. It was further developed the lot system, vibrating fork, capacitive sensors, single rod probes and radar technology. With over a million successfully solved applications in over 60 countries across the world the products represent quality, flexibility and reliability.

Since then, UWT has become one of the leading suppliers of measurement technology on the world market today for the level detection in silos and material manufacturing processes.

The development, production and sales departments are located at the headquarters in Betzigau, Germany, with a further production site in Malta. UWT has also established successful sales offices in the USA, UK, China, India and most recently Russia. With this global orientation, customers can be supported with complete competence and flexibility. The company knew it could find new markets if it could assist customers with specific processing problems, while also delivering excellent service and fast response. 

From development through production to final assembly and comprehensive technical advice, the company offers a complete service from a single source. Focus is placed on delivering the highest quality products, technical expertise and a good working relationship with customers, suppliers and partners.

The strongly held belief by CEO Uwe Niekrawietz is for the welfare of over 140 employees world-wide:
Healthy and happy employees can make the unbelievable happen“.

Every year the product portfolio evolves, develops and brings about solutions for a variety of industries. As well as providing level measurement also monitoring and visualisation systems are offered, together with complete project planning. Renowned plant manufacturers and end users around the world appreciate the ability to deliver customised solutions for their applications, as well as the ease of use and durability of the UWT sensors. The strategy in the consistent monitoring of an own steady and sustainable growth allows UWT to provide the best value solutions for customers.
