Intro

STUDER has been writing grinding history since 1912. STUDER has developed from a small enterprise into an internationally active company with around 800 employees. Fritz Studer AG owes its position in the market to the experience gained from building more than 24,000 systems. Its former pioneering spirit is also reflected in its present-day products, and is impressively demonstrated by the quality and quantity of its innovations. Since 1994 STUDER has been part of UNITED GRINDING Group.
