The Tintometer Ltd enjoys a traditional history but an even more innovative future. The company was founded in 1885 by Joseph Lovibond, a prominent brewery owner who introduced the LOVIBOND® colour scale and the first colorimeter ever as a means of ensuring the quality of his beer. By 1893 he had perfected his research and introduced the first instruments. Since then, the company has continued to develop and extend the product range.


"   There are very few companies which can look back over a history of over 130 years of success. The reason we can do so lies in the world-wide appreciation of our products and the determination of our work-force to maintain this. " 

– Cay-Peter Voss, CEO

Today, the company is bringing Water Analysis & Colour measurement to the next generation. While still recognizing the importance of traditional methods, The Tintometer Ltd is introducing new techniques to bring measurement and quality control to an even higher level, developing creative solutions to ensure the continued reputation of the Lovibond® brand.
