After studying at the art academy in Hamburg and working as an advertising manager for the Heinkel company in Rostock (1934 to 1938), the illustrator and artist Kurt Stender founded the Stender company in Berlin.
War and post-war turmoil do not allow the continuation of the company by it´s founder until 1948 in Wangen im Allgäu.
Technical documentations are hand crafted in pencil by the editors. Illustrations are created on the drawing table, partially generated by means of stencils. Colored illustrations are elaborately colored by hand.
In February 1957 the company already receives its first orders from the Federal Office of Defense Technology and Procurement (BWB).
The next generation is in the starting blocks. In 1974 Lutz Stender takes over the company and develops it into a full service provider for technical documentation of various products.
A completely new technical solution for documentation has arrived: The handwritten texts are transcribed in the in-house writing office. The following devices were used in the implementation: IBM typewriters, Adler Breitkopf typewriters, IBM Composer, IBM Text 3, Siemens compact text station and the like.
The next milestone following the typewriter: The PC prevails and offers the option of data module-based documentation (HTML / SGML) implemented according to the single source principle.
Due to the constantly growing number of customers, a subsidiary was founded in Jena in 1997.
With Dr. Michael Stender taking over the management in third generation in 2003 and the acquisition of well-known new customers, the company expands to a current staff of around fifty highly qualified employees.
The STENDER company has also had an office in Ulm since 2013. This creates a closeness to the customer, which creates many advantages for both sides.
The Stender company opens another office in Koblenz.
Interactive and intuitive - virtuality and reality in harmony. Technical communication is changing fundamentally. The Stender company keeps up with the times: With augmented reality, mobile documentation and virtual reality, completely new possibilities can be utilized.
