About us

Schaefer-Tec distributes in Europe since 1963 rigorously selected SME suppliers of characterization technologies for Nano-Sciences.

After having successfully marketed Vacuum and Cryogenics technologies for many years, with the availability of commercial Scanning Probe Microscopies, our company established itself as a leading supplier of nanoscale characterization technologies in the nineties, then grew into a pan-European network in the 2000s.
