Inspiring trust in new technologies for 150 years
1866 - Today
Throughout history, new technologies have revolutionised society. But new technology also creates uncertainty until we understand how it works and can manage the risk. From the age of steam engines to our modern hyper-connected world, TÜV SÜD has a proven track record of partnering businesses and inspiring people to trust in new technologies.
To date, our world today has been shaped by three major technological revolutions. The first introduced the use of steam boilers in production. Engines and electricity heralded the arrival of the second. For the third revolution, production was further automated using electronics and IT. Today, we stand at the dawn of the fourth revolution – Industry 4.0. Join us on a 150-year journey as we explore the many milestones that have contributed to our reputation as a global leader in premium quality, safety and sustainability solutions.
