History of Shanghai Tianmin Automation Instruments Co., Ltd.

Shanghai Tianmin Automation Instruments Co., Ltd. was established in March 1983 and is a specialized manufacturer & supplier of liquid level detectors & gauging instruments. We are a co-operation enterprise with China State Shipbuilding Corporation Ltd. (CSSC). We were the first domestic company developing & manufacturing magnetic liquid level gauges, which were awarded as the “Excellent New Product” by the Shanghai municipal administration in the year of 1987.
In 1998 KSR Kuebler AG Germany closed joint venture with Shanghai Tianchen Automation Co. Ltd (parent company of Tianmin), and founded Shanghai KSR Kuebler Automation Instrument Co. Ltd. Initially KSR Kuebler supplied Tianmin with material for the production of magnetic level gauge, float sensor as well as float switches.
Two years later KSR Kuebler not only supplied joint venture with raw material but also some parts, such as float, indicator etc. The cooperation between the companies was running very well and both partners were willing to engage in the production of KSR Kuebler products in Shanghai.
End of 2002 KSR Kuebler AG took over 70% of share in joint venture and started to produce similar products, such as in Germany, for the China market. The technology transfer of KSR Products into joint venture has been executed under control of KSR Kuebler management.
Unfortunately the cooperation ended in year 2006 and from then on Shanghai Tianmin Automation Instruments Co. Ltd continued to produce a good quality product base into German technology. Today Tianmin has more than 125 employees and produce all kind of level instrument base of float principle.
