Company founder Prof. Dr. Peter-Klaus Budig

"Our approach as a scientific industrial company provides us with a time advantage as we are already working on solutions for which there may not be any application yet. This unorthodox method is a significant factor in our success as we already have a solution when the market starts tentatively demanding new, innovative products. It is an enormous competitive edge."
