HWI Analytik was founded in 1991 by Dr. Stefan Wissel and Professor Dr. Hanns Häberlein in Rheinzabern in Southern Palatinate. The first laboratory was located in the backyard of Dr. Stefan Wissel's parents' pharmacy. The name HWI was formed from the initials of the surnames Häberlein and Wissel. The addition of the term “Analytik” describes the young entrepreneurs’ focus of activity at that time, which consisted in dealing with analytical issues. Over the years the services have permanently been expanded; the company looks back on continuous growth.
