Tradition and innovation since 1886
The requirements to modern fire protection are multifaceted and complex. In addition to a quick and safe fire fighting success, aspects such as environment protection, health and sustainability are in focus. Challenges that require a rethink in terms of development and production, but also in terms of deployment strategies and tactics, along with the selection of the right fire extinguishing agent.
We at Dr. STHAMER see ourselves as experts in the field of fire extinguishing agents - and have been for more than 100 years. With our experience and our culture of innovation, we continuously develop new products for you, improve our processes and offer specialist services.

Our consistent specialization in foam agents & special extinguishing agents, support in conversion projects to fluorine-free extinguishing agents, and the imparting of knowledge and education about foam application enable us to find individual solutions for a wide variety of requirements. Dr. Sthamer covers the entire spectrum from development and production to application-technical consulting from a single source.
Dr. STHAMER's values for customers from around the world
As a mid-sized family-owned company, we have been able to gain the trust of customers worldwide based on our values of sincerity, integrity, reliability, and fairness, as well as the quality of our work, allowing us to develop into one of the leading manufacturers of foam agents and fire extinguishing additives.
The company was founded by Dr. Richard Sthamer to develop and produce technical chemicals as well as pharmaceutical products.
In 1920 first attempts were made to use saponine as a foam agent for firefighting.
The patent for the first protein-based foam agent was filed. Many more followed.
In the early 1950s, the development of the first synthetic alcohol-resistant foam agent was achieved.
The 1980s were characterized by the development of environmentally compatible foam agents and by the conversion of production processes.
Today, customers from all around the globe place their trust in us. In our products, quality and expertise. Our objective is still the development of high-quality, environmentally friendly and extraordinary high performing firefighting foam agents.
For more than 100 years we have been dealing intensively with the research, development and production of foam extinguishing agents that are used successfully all over the world in a wide variety of areas.
To ensure the quality of our products we are meticulously checking every single delivery of raw materials and every single production.
Decades of experience in development, production and testing of liquid fire extinguishing agents have made us the industry leading foam experts. We use this expertise to assist internationally recognised working groups and risk consultants to understand the effectiveness of fire extinguishing foam agents depending on various influencing factors. One of the most pressing topics today is the transition from fluorine containing to fluo-rine free foam agents. A complex topic that poses great uncertainties and challenges for industrial fire services, health and safety managers, engineering businesses and insurers as well as users in general.
We at Dr. STHAMER help with the conceptual design and offer special training courses on this topic.
In addition to training on special key topics and application-specific content, we also offer basic trainings aimed at passing on knowledge about the efficient and environmentally friendly use of foam extinguishing agents.
