Rohde & Schwarz was founded 85 years ago and is headquartered in Munich. The independent technology group develops, produces and markets a wide range of innovative communications, information and security products for industry and government customers.
The company has grouped its activities into four business fields in order to address the different markets with dedicated products.

The Executive Board is composed of two members: Christian Leicher (Chairman) and Peter Riedel. As an independent, privately owned company, Rohde & Schwarz generates its growth from its own resources. Since the company does not have to think in terms of quarterly results, it can plan for the long term. In fiscal year 2020/2021 (July to June), Rohde & Schwarz generated EUR 2.28 billion in revenue. The company owes this tremendous success to its 13,000 highly qualified employees in over 70 countries.
