ZEISS Celebrating 175 years of Excellence

ZEISS celebrates its 175th anniversary this year. Here is looking back at an inspiring lineage packed with pioneering spirit, seized opportunities and new prospects

The ZEISS success story began 175 years ago, in a small workshop. On November 17, 1846, a young mechanic Carl Zeiss opened his workshop focusing on precision mechanics and optics in Jena, thus laying the foundation for what we know as the global technology player-ZEISS. The young Zeiss went on to join forces with physicist and mathematician Ernst Abbe 20 years later, which proved to be the first step toward the workshop’s transformation into a fully fledged company.
