German measuring specialist Stabila is celebrating 130 years.

For a measuring company, there’s no more logical way to celebrate a big birthday than with a set of celebratory spirit levels. Stabila has launched a limited-edition 1889 Anniversary Edition set. Each contains four spirit levels: three in lengths of 40cm in white, 60cm in yellow and 100 or 120cm in black, all with the classic Stabila profile and hard-wearing coated measuring surface. Each instrument is inscribed with the Stabila anniversary logo and delivers accuracy of 0.5mm/m in normal position and 1.0mm/m in reverse position. In addition, a plastic, mini-format 1889 pocket spirit level is also included to carry out quick horizontal alignments.

Stabila uses a sophisticated, automated process to produce their measuring tools, yet many of the production stages are still done by hand. The permanently cast vial ensures maximum precision and durability even when subjected to high loads. Today, up to 10,000 spirit levels a day are produced at Stabila’s Annweiler factory in Germany and sold into 80 countries around the globe.

Still keeping with the changing times, the company is also running a ‘Be a True Pro’ social media competition until 13 November 2019. To enter, entrants can post their ‘Stabila moment’ on their Instagram account using the hashtags #BEATRUEPRO and #STABILA to win Stabila and Apple products. The ‘Stabila moment’ can be posted either as a photo or a video, but a Stabila product must be visible in the post. Check out the website for full details.
