Traditionally magnetic

What started 60 years ago with the gutsy decision of founders Peter Simon and Herbert Braun has developed into into an entrepreneurial and technological success story. The driving force remains the same. MS-Schramberg is dedicated to one of physics' most exciting and fascinating phenomenons: magnetism. We are looking back on a magnetic company history that has spanned half a century.
