History:

Seiler Instrument & Mfg. Co., Inc. was founded in 1945 by Eric H Seiler and his wife, Dora L. Seiler.  The Seiler business originally was  established to manufacture and repair surveying equipment in downtown St. Louis, Missouri.  Eric H. Seiler’s arrived in the United States with a Master’s degree in Fine Optics from the Zeiss Jena School of Fine Optics in Jena, Germany.  His appreciation of fine optics, craftsmanship and pride in his work contributed to our core philosophy of quality and customer service, a legacy which he passed on to his son Eric P. Seiler, Chairman of the Board, and his grandchildren, CEO and President Rick Seiler and Executive Vice President, Tom Seiler and Compliance Directory, Louise Seiler Schaper.

With the family’s continued hands-on approach and guidance and our highly skilled support  team the company business has grown from their original office in downtown St. Louis to a multi-faceted family operation facility with over 140,000 square feet located in the Industrial Park Center of Valley Park, Missouri (St. Louis Metropolitan area.) Our family owned firm has five distinct divisions; Seiler Manufacturing, Seiler Geospatial, Seiler Medical, Seiler Planetarium and Seiler Design Solutions.
