more about us

We do not compete with each other, but work together. This is how we develop and make high-quality and unique products. We do this by sharing knowledge. That is why we welcome any new insight and are happy to work with technical talents.

We share knowledge, for example, with honors programs for students and High-tech Safaris. We also have special career and development programs for talents and we guide high-tech startups. The companies share high-tech equipment, including industrial metal and plastic 3D printers and cobots in our Shared Facility Center. Our workshops for R&D projects, development and testing facilities for 3D printing and soon auditoriums for school and student programs are also located there.
