TETRA GmbH was founded in 1991 by Dipl.-Ing. Olaf Mollenhauer and Dr.-Ing. Andreas Karguth at high-tech location of Ilmenau. In the beginning of the company, products for medical and laboratories technology were designed and distributed. In 1999, the OEM-development and production was strengthened for the electronics sector and international networks were built. Due to a continuous growth, it was necessary to expand the company building in 2004 to create new space for new employees and developments. In 2005 TETRA established a new strategy to put focus on new technologies and to distribute proprietary products. Today TETRA is a company, which is worldwide leading pioneer in sensors and robotics with its patented technologies.
