As a logical development of our previous fields of activity, in 1990 we founded our subsidiary, Foerster & Thelen Teststudio GmbH, with offices in Bochum, Hanover, Düsseldorf and Mannheim. In 1993 Dr. Haspel & Partner Teststudio GmbH joined us as our associated partner with studios in Dresden and Berlin.
We then expanded our portfolio into the online market research sector with webfrager GmbH.
When we first embarked on our collaboration with our new partner company, Rosenthal Research S.L., in Barcelona, this was the starting point for founding the cooperative network Foerster + Thelen Group in 2007. This brand provides all of the networking partners with a common name and presentation platform.
The Foerster + Thelen Group also collaborates with partners in North America and provides services to this market trading under the name of International Field Solutions (IFS).
