With a true passion for business, optics pioneer Karl Steiner established Steiner Optik GmbH in 1947. He soon realized that the company’s future was reliant on the production of professional high-quality binoculars. This revolutionary idea set high standards within the optics industry and Steiner Optik soon became the world-leading quality binocular manufacturer. In 1973, he stepped down and his son, Carl, took over the family business. Carl Steiner managed to strengthen the company’s position and Steiner Optik has become the world’s leading company in binocular production with products available in 65 countries.
Many revolutionary innovations were not only developed by Steiner, but set the standards for future products of all binocular manufacturers. Steiner innovations include rubber armoring, an integrated compass, special optical coating to protect against harmful UV radiation, the pocket-size binocular, and the new Predator lens coating to increase contrast of animals against wooded backgrounds.
Steiner binoculars stand up to even the toughest conditions. No pair of binoculars leaves the factory without undergoing a level of functional and material testing that is unmatched in the industry, which guarantees optical brilliance and product functionality. Standards are constantly redefined in an ongoing effort to perfect the quality of Steiner products.
Steiner binoculars are tougher than ever, extremely lightweight, with innovative designs, durable construction and the benefit of German-engineered optics technology for a lifetime of dependable performance. Steiner is the only company in the industry that specializes solely in binoculars, and should be the first choice for anyone who does not want to compromise on quality.
Steiner-Optik was recently acquired by the Beretta Group and is now part of the Beretta family.
