Our company was founded in 1922 by Paul Marienfeld in Thuringia and since that date the company is owned by the Marienfeld family. In 1955, the company moved to Baden-Württemberg and nowadays we distribute our products from Lauda-Königshofen to more than 100 countries worldwide.


Since our modest beginnings in Thuringia’s Geraberg we have continually grown and developed: Out of a small glass grinding production to an internationally operating company.

After the Second World War, Paul Marienfeld set up the production in Coburg, Bavaria. In the fifties of the last century followed the move to Bad Mergentheim in Baden-Württemberg. When the area for our further company’s expansion became insufficient, we built our new factory in Lauda-Königshofen (approx. 40 km south of Würzburg).

Modern production technologies are combined with the knowledge and expertise of more than 90 years of experience. The results are quality products.

Our experience of more than 90 years in developing and producing laboratory glassware will be your success, too.
