Our company’s name HENSOLDT traces back to Moritz Carl Hensoldt, a German pioneer of optics and precision mechanics in the 19th century, whose name stands for premium solutions, combining excellence, innovation and efficiency. We represent a more than 100-year-old German tradition in technology by continuing the work done by such renowned predecessors as Telefunken, Dornier, Siemens Sicherungstechnik and Carl Zeiss Optronics.
HENSOLDT employs approximately 4,000 employees, generating annual revenues of about €1 billion.
