Mechanikus Gottlieb KERN founded his company in 1844 and manufactured the most accurate balances of its time. His business became the core cell of the internationally famous, southern German precision balance manufacturing.
Over 170 years of experience and the devotion to quality has enabled us to become specialists in the weighing field with the KERN brand standing for precision and reliability. We are an independent, medium sized family business, in its 7th generation, registered in southern Germany.
KERN is DIN ISO 9001:2008 accredited and globally active.
Weights have always been used to carry out weighing procedures. This original purpose has almost disappeared. Today, weights are used almost exclusively for adjusting and testing calibration of electronic balances. More about KERN test weights here
