The company is founded by Dipl.-Wirt.-Ing.Eva Jesinghaus, Dr.-Ing. Thomas M. Reetz und Dr.-Ing. Wolfgang Burger. It focuses on the development of customer-specific electronic circuits and on the production of small series.


The first internally developed product, the modular interface system MIS, is realized.

The company moves to larger premises. MIS is launched onto the market. Two distributors sell the product under their name.

A licensing contract is signed with Dr. Rainer Oberacker, Institut für Keramik im Maschinenbau (Institute for Ceramics in Mechanical Engineering). A manual granule strength testing system (GFP) is developed using the patented measurement method. First demands for customer-specific test systems.

The development of an automated granule strength testing system (GFP) starts. The project is funded by the state of Baden-Württemberg through a C1 program as „a technically demanding and high-risk development project“.

The company changes its focus from the series production to customer-specific complete solutions. The development of the automated granule strength testing system (GFP) is completed.

The automated granule strength testing system (GFP) is launched into the market. The company extends its activities as a system partner for the development of special test rigs.

The company moves to larger premises in the Floridastraße.

etewe delivers the first fire pump test rig and conquers a new business segment which will grow continuously in the following years.

With the withdrawal of Dr.-Ing. Wolfgang Burger the company is renamed into etewe GmbH, Prüf- und Automatisierungssysteme.

With currently 18 employees, etewe has developed into a system partner for the design and implementation of customer-specific test and automation systems.

The company premises are expanded by 50% to build a new test building – the projects are becoming larger and more versatile. A long-term collaboration with important market leaders in the fields of sealing elements, drive technology and safety valves begins.

With the introduction of our ERP system we succeed in achieving a sustainable optimization of the project processes, from which both, project partners and employees benefit.

Start of cooperation with the training association pfiv e. V. In the course of the cooperation we train three office clerks.

Together with our customers, suppliers and families we celebrate the company's 25th anniversary with a big celebration.

Our »annus mirabilis«: etewe wins the bid for two large pump testing fields for gear pumps and centrifugal chemical pumps. Both projects are successfully completed in this and the following years – from planning to operational handover.

Successful project work is overshadowed by a severe setback: our managing director Eva Jesinghaus dies from a serious illness in October. Dr-Ing. Thomas M. Reetz takes over the sole management.

The product lines „MIS“ and „GFP“ are stopped and etewe sets its focus exclusively on customer-specific project work.

The rental of an additional test building takes into account the increased demands by our projects and enables the implementation of increasingly larger test and automation systems on twice the area.

Project documentation and quality management are intensified; the QM-System according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2015 has been certified.
