Satisloh Celebrates 100 Years of the Art of Making Lenses Honoring the Past, Creating the Future

Satisloh’s 100th year will culminate with a celebratory global SLUGFest from the 4th to 6th of October 2022 in Wetzlar, Germany – right where its story began.




(PRESS RELEASE) BAAR, SWITZERLAND — Satisloh celebrated its 100-year anniversary. Founded in 1922 in Wetzlar, Germany by Wilhelm Loh, it is a global leader in ophthalmic and precision optics manufacturing machines. The organization has played a key role in bringing innovations and technologies to both markets during the past 100 years.

In the aftermath of World War I, the company started producing machines for canning jars, and cast iron lapping tools for numerous local optical factories. Since these humble beginnings, Satisloh has achieved many notable milestones. With its strong foundations and knowledge, the manufacturer has shaped the present landscape of optical manufacturing and is continuing to create the future of lens processing.

Even though the company was founded 100 years ago, the vision remains the same: with customers at the center of everything, they do — improving customer production with custom processes and manufacturing solutions. They continue to drive innovation and development with new sustainability technologies, automation, equipment, consumables and processes.

“Celebrating our 100th anniversary is an exciting milestone for the company and our employees. It is also an opportunity to thank everyone who has been on this incredible journey with us – our customers, suppliers, business partners, and the extended Satisloh Group family. Your support helped us reach this milestone,” said Bruno Fischer CEO for Satisloh Group.

The celebrations will kick off today at Satisloh locations across the world. The anniversary will be recognized throughout 2022 at tradeshows and events worldwide for both customers and employees. Satisloh’s 100th year will culminate with a celebratory global SLUGFest from the 4th to 6th of October 2022 in Wetzlar, Germany – right where its story began.
