Jenoptik has announced it is investing 11 million EURO in a new facility for its 220 metrology employees in Villingen-Schwenningen who will have access to the latest development, production and office areas for global automotive and industrial customers.
The construction work will start in the spring of 2019 and employees are expected to move into the new building, which is located in the “Salzgrube” industrial estate near to the current location in the spring of 2020.
“Our current buildings and other areas no longer meet the requirements for the latest working and production environments. Investments in cutting-edge infrastructure for the benefit of our employees and customers are a fundamental part of Jenoptik’s development in the coming years”, says Jenoptik President & CEO Stefan Traeger.
Besides modern laboratory, testing and production areas, the space for services and customer support will also be considerably expanded. This will create large rooms for demonstrations, training sessions and meetings, all equipped with the latest technology.
Jenoptik’s metrology targets customers from the automotive industry and, increasingly, also other industrial customers, who are focused on manufacturing high-precision parts. The product portfolio includes contact and non-contact production metrology with micrometer precision for the pneumatic, tactile or optical testing of roughness, contours and shape as well as the inspection of dimensions and surfaces as process and quality control. The focus of future development is on smart manufacturing and automation solutions based on optical and photonic technologies for automotive and industrial customers.
