From now on, the businesses operating as Jenoptik Laser (Jena), Jenoptik Polymer Systems (Triptis, Berlin and Mühlhausen locations), Jenoptik Diode Lab (Berlin) and the Sensors business unit of Jenoptik Advanced Systems will be merged forming Jenoptik Optical Systems.
The company stated, “The 1,200 employees in the Light & Optics division from across the world have been working in new, global structures since January 1 this year. The know-how and extensive experience in optics and photonics will be brought together in a global production, service and sales network to intensify the focus on providing solutions from a single source. The Jenoptik Light & Optics division is an OEM partner and combines comprehensive expertise from optics, microoptics, laser technology, digital image processing, optoelectronics and sensors.”
