STEINER-OPTIK

Innovator in optics for more than 50 years

STEINER-Optik GmbH, a German-based firm, was founded in 1947 by Carl Steiner. He was an optics engineer with some revolutionary ideas about how binoculars should be designed built and perform. Steiner developed his unique approach on binocular design and created military binoculars that were not only precise, extremely bright and lightweight, but also tough like no other binoculars available. The design soon became a favorite among the world’s militaries.

             Since the company’s founding more than 50 years ago, STEINER-Optik has grown to be a leading supplier to the outdoor, hunting, marine, military, and law enforcement markets. Allied Armies around the world – including the U.S. Army and countless law enforcement agencies – sportsmen, nature enthusiast and outdoor professionals alike, have made STEINER their optics of choice.

             STEINER’s reputation for introducing innovative design and functional enhancements – earned during the firm’s formative years – continues today as STEINER has become a “trend setter” for the optics industry. Today, STEINER is a market leader in high performance binoculars in the United States and around the world.

                                                              

            Among its innovations: STEINER was the first manufacturer to clad binoculars in rubber armor, the first to use unbreakable thermoplastics in a binocular body and the first to ever build a compass directly into binoculars. In addition, the firm is credited with mounting binocular lenses to a new inner shock absorbing system and holds countless patents.

            For over 55 years, STEINER-Optik has continued to bring new and exciting products to the optics industry and to thousands of professionals, hunters and outdoor enthusiasts. Making headlines currently are their Peregrine Series of Premium binoculars which deliver the highest level of optical performance available from any European Binocular manufacturer – and the company’s Merlin Series, binoculars made for the serious birder and naturalists. In early 2006 STEINER introduces yet another innovation: the smallest and lightest compass binocular in the world. It’s based on STEINER’s high-performance Commander-V series, which is regarded by many professional boaters as the best marine binocular and currently used by all teams entered in the Volvo Ocean Race, the world’s toughest around-the-world ocean race.

             Today, Carl Steiner Jr., son of the founder, is the company’s President and CEO. STEINER-Optik is based in Bayreuth, Germany where they manufacture and market a complete line of durable, precision binoculars and accessories for outdoor, hunting, military, marine, law enforcement and  birding markets worldwide.

             STEINER’s exclusive sales, marketing and distribution agent for North America since 1982 is Pioneer Research of Moorestown, New Jersey.  For more information on Steiner Optik or any STEINER product, contact:  Pioneer Research, 97 Foster Road, Moorestown, NJ 08057.
