25 years of QUNDIS: company celebrates a milestone in its history
In line with its “Tradition of innovation” company slogan, on 23 June 2016 QUNDIS GmbH celebrated its 25th anniversary at its HQ in Erfurt together with partners, customers and friends, as well as representatives from the worlds of business and politics. Among the keynote speakers were Carsten Schneider, member of the Bundestag and Deputy Chairman of the SPD parliamentary party, Thuringia’s Minister of Economics Wolfgang Tiefensee and Mayor of Erfurt Andreas Bausewein, while former ESA astronaut Prof. Ulrich Walter took the anniversary guests on a tour of the cosmos.
“We are delighted that we have been able to celebrate our anniversary with so many friends and business partners. It was an exciting day with many new experiences and memories from 25 years of our company’s history,” states Dieter Berndt, Chairman of the Management Board at QUNDIS, adding: “I would above all like to express my thanks to our committed staff, without whom such a success story would not have been possible. In future, too, we aim to do everything in our power to continue to develop our company further”.
QUNDIS GmbH is a manufacturer of metering devices and systems for recording the consumption of water and heating. Its customers include metering service companies, OEM partners and housing companies. The QUNDIS devices are in operation in 6 million apartments in over 30 countries, making the Erfurt company one of Europe’s major suppliers of metering and readout systems. Currently QUNDIS employs a workforce of around 300 at its headquarters in Erfurt, with further locations in Paris, Maribor, Istanbul, Moscow and Milan. The company’s system solutions are manufactured exclusively in Germany and, by measuring and analysing energy consumption, make an important contribution to the responsible use of natural resources.
The predecessors of what is today QUNDIS GmbH were SaMeCo elektronic GmbH, which was based in Mühlhausen/Thuringia, and KUNDO System Technik GmbH from St. Georgen in the Black Forest. A number of takeovers of SaMeCo., including those by Landis & Gyr and Siemens, led to the creation in 2007 of QVEDIS GmbH. One year later QVEDIS merged with KUNDO System Technik GmbH from St. Georgen in the Black Forest. The company has been operating under the name of QUNDIS since 2009. In the summer of 2013 the manufacturer of metering devices combined its Mühlhausen and St. Georgen operations at its new company HQ at Güterverkehrszentrum Thüringen (Thuringian Freight Hub) in Erfurt. The main departments of the company, research and development, production, sales, marketing and administration, were brought together under one roof. All QUNDIS products are manufactured exclusively in Erfurt and feature the ‘Made in Germany’ label. The company has achieved a number of milestones in its eventful history: for example, QUNDIS put the first water meter with energy evaluation on the market, and the smallest heat cost allocator ever produced was also a QUNDIS design.
