Munich based technology group develops, produces and sells a wide range of electronic capital goods for industry and government customers with a focus on solutions that contribute to a safer and connected world. As an independent, privately owned company, Rohde & Schwarz finances its growth from its own resources. Since the company does not have to think in terms of quarterly results, it can plan sustainably for the long term. The company was founded more than 85 years ago by university friends Dr. Lothar Rohde and Dr. Hermann Schwarz.
Rohde & Schwarz has an extensive sales and service network and is present in more than 70 countries, primarily with its own subsidiaries. Exports account for approximately 85 percent of revenue. The company is headquartered in Munich, Germany, and has strong regional hubs in Asia and the USA.
Rohde & Schwarz is a high-tech company that thrives on innovation. To maintain its high quality standards, Rohde & Schwarz keeps almost the entire value chain within the company. The majority of products are developed in Germany. The Asian hub in Singapore also uses its comprehensive resources to develop, produce and market products for the global market. The company maintains smaller R&D locations in the USA, Asia and several European countries.
Since its founding, Rohde & Schwarz has benefited from the close proximity of development and production. Most products are manufactured in the company's Bavarian plants in Memmingen and Teisnach as well as in the Czech town of Vimperk close to the Bavarian border. Plants in Singapore and Malaysia keep production close to the company's R&D activities at its Asian headquarters
