The beginning

History

The beginning of uv-technik

In 1986, Karl-Heinz Meyer and Michael Miseré met for the first time. Both of them were young engineers, and they shared a common vision: They wanted to offer industrial services and establish their reputation as specialists in tailor made UV lamp systems and associated equipment. Their greatest passion has always been to develop individual solutions to all sorts of UV-related problems.

As one of the first UV component suppliers, they have been developing and supporting this technology from the very beginnings. Revolutionary technical developments, top quality, trendsetting innovation as well as professional consulting competence in addressing our customers’ UV issues – these are the strengths that are manifested in all of our products. Almost as many as 100 engineers, technicians and other personnel, located in Ortenberg, (in Germany) and Luton (Great Britain), make visions come true every day. We set the standards that have made us market leader in the field of UV components.

Remarkable strengths make companies market leaders. Our strengths: customer-oriented solutions for new plants and systems that can be specifically integrated with existing production processes, also as retrofits.

uv-technik meyer gmbh operates in all fields with great quality consciousness and in a yield-oriented way. Return has priority over turnover. With all of our personnel acting in an entrepreneurial way, we increase the value of our company and, at the same time, we secure our independence in the long term.
