SINCE 1873*

140 years Masters of Technology

For 140 years, the Masters of Technology’s trailblazing innovations and exceptional quality have injected new impetus into the industry. Here we introduce some of the company’s current employees who keep the same ideals alive today.

Over a hundred years before creative gusto and visions of technical advances inspired the likes of Steve Jobs and Bill Gates to establish start-ups in their parents’ garages, the German innovator Carl Nestler had already taken a similar path. A true pioneer, Nestler obtained a lathe – no easy feat in 1873 when an entrepreneurial boom had created a shortage of the machines. He set up a small foundry with a kiln and smelting furnace in the cellar of his parent’s home in Lahr and started producing faucets and fittings.

He soon earned a reputation in the region as faucet-maker Nestler. Over the years, the Carl Nestler company became one of the industry’s most active powerhouses. It was above all instrumental in developing advances in thermostat technology – which was still in its infancy. The production of the Lahr ½-inch “people’s thermostat” was just one such milestone.
