Historical Heritage

Founded in 1864

The Wedel site has a special significance for the company. It was here, 160 years ago in 1864, that Johann Diedrich Möller built his first microscope and founded his company, J.D. Möller, which grew strongly over the decades and developed numerous optical and precision mechanical products and solutions. Business reorientations and changes in company law, as well as groundbreaking new products, have shaped the company to this day. In 1990, J.D.Möller Optische Werke GmbH (later MÖLLER-WEDEL GmbH) was integrated into the Haag-Streit Group, headquartered in Köniz, Switzerland, which still leads Möller-Wedel Optical as part of METALL ZUG AG. With the aim of aggressively expanding the market position of Möller measuring instruments, the company Möller-Wedel Optical GmbH was founded as a subsidiary of Möller-Wedel GmbH with effect from 01.01.2000.
