Weibel Scientific A/S has been engaged in technology since 1936, when Marius Peter Weibel founded the Danish electronics company M. P. Weibel. In 1977, the Weibel family stepped out of the business, and Erik Tingleff Larsen founded Weibel Scientific, gradually moving from the production of optical detectors into the pioneering work with radar systems. The success of this venture allowed Weibel Scientific to expand beyond the Danish borders with the opening of Weibel GmbH in Germany in 1989 and Weibel Equipment Inc. in the U.S. in 1993.
From 1992, Erik Tingleff Larsen ran the privately owned, independent corporation jointly with current CEO and President Peder R. Pedersen. In 2002, Pedersen assumed sole responsibility for Weibel Scientific’s day-to-day management, with Larsen remaining sole shareholder and chairman of the board. Weibel Scientific achieved ISO 9001:2000 certification in 2005.
Today more than 85 people work at the company headquarters in Alleroed, north of Copenhagen, designing and producing the world’s most advanced Doppler radars. With a creative and innovative eye for business and technology, Weibel Scientific’s management and staff have taken the company to where it is today: number one in the production and development of Doppler radars.
