Lovibond Tintometer was founded in 1885 by Joseph Williams Lovibond, the son of a prominent brewery owner in Greenwich, London, England. J.W. Lovibond developed the world's first practical colorimeter as a means of ensuring the high quality of his beer. By the time of his death in 1918 he had established himself as a pioneer in the field of colour science and his company, Lovibond® Tintometer®, was already known throughout the world for its range of instrumentation and expertise in the field of colorimetry.
In 1915, Joseph Lovibond published his pioneering book – ‘Light and colour theories and their relation to light and colour standardization’, placing the author and his company at the forefront of color science and innovation.
The company continued to grow in strength and as advances were made both in colour science research and in instrument development, Lovibond® standards became specified for many products worldwide.
Lovibond Tintometer continues as a leader in its field today. Represented in over eighty countries, products are manufactured and exported globally via a well-established distributor network.
Lovibond® and Tintometer® are the registered trade marks of The Tintometer Ltd., Amesbury, U.K.
