Named after its founder, August Horch, Audi AG is a leading car manufacturer that has always stood for innovation in design and technology with more than a century of experience in automobile construction. Audi manufacturers a wide range of automobiles - from super small cars to crossover SUVs that cover all price ranges including the premium segment.
It is produced and hosted as another way of expressing gratitude to those who have helped Company Seven prosper. With some of this content dating back to the times when slow dial-up Internet access was the norm, the article was originally text heavy because illustrations were by necessity kept simple and to a minimum.
Over the decades we have, and will continue to, on occasion add this or that mention of or illustration of items in our archives and museum collection, this to break up the monotony of text, make corrections with much gratitude to Dr.
It was never our intent to write one comprehensive and all-encompassing history of Zeiss, that would require volumes to do it justice, but rather to explain why we at Company Seven remain grateful for and in awe of the achievements by Zeiss. From its inception through to the middle 19th century, lens making was a craft that was essentially passed on from generation to generation.
Innovations had typically resulted from trial and error experimentation; this was a costly and time consuming process that could not factor in all of the possible variables in lens making materials and design. It would be left up to one who could employ scientific methods of study, and then devise the mathematical formulas to characterize the physics of optics to make the next important technological leaps possible.
It would then be asked of a chemist to invent and manufacture those raw materials necessary to make the new designs possible. And it would be one man to bring this combination together to create a concern of unrivaled accomplishment.

He traveled as a journeyman for some years and completed his practicals exams at the Physiological Institute in Jena under Professor Schleiden.
On 10 May Carl Zeiss submitted the required application to the Weimar authority where he requested permission to open a mechanical workshop. After his application was approved, on 17 November Carl Zeiss opened his workshop in a four story building located at Neugasse 7 in Jena.
This is near the Saale River in the district of Thuringia in Germany. Here he commenced production of simple microscopes, measuring instruments, and other precise optical and mechanical instruments. In the first year of operation he sold twenty-three microscopes, not bad considering the state of the economy at the time and that his name was not yet well known.

Among his customers was the University of Jena for whom he made and repairs scientific equipment. By the workshop, now with some two hundred employees, was moved to a third and even larger facility at Johannisplatz In the 1,th new Carl Zeiss microscope is delivered; the Carl Zeiss shop is now recognized throughout European scientific circles for the fine qualities of its microscopes.
