Quality and precision
Made in Germany

Founded in 1919, our company manufactures high-quality precision devices and glass instruments for laboratory and hospital requirements.

We supply the specialized trade under the well-known trade mark Assistent® through numerous domestic and abroad representatives and distribution partners. Our comprehensive standard program, e.g. volumetric measuring instruments made of glass and plastics or different liquid handling products, is completed by an extensive range of consumables, disposable articles and electric devices.

Due to our long-time experience and our trained and motivated staff’s professional competence we are the ideal contact if individual solutions are in demand. On request we are also producing custom-made products even in small quantities.

Since 1995 the quality management system of the Glaswarenfabrik Karl Hecht is certified by TÜV Hessen according to DIN EN ISO 9001. The Assistent® products are distributed worldwide through retail partners (laboratory specialized trade, medical technical specialized trade). Our employees and representatives visit and advise the business partners in Germany, Switzerland, France, Austria and Scandinavia. Thanks to fully developed logistics a fast and reliable delivery is guaranteed. In Germany the supply partly takes place with own vehicles.
