A company which forges networks with partners

Since 2009 we have constantly expanded and intensified our cooperation with various research institutes and universities. With the Fraunhofer Group for Process Innovation and the University of Bayreuth, for instance, besides the layout plan, we also optimised our production process with regard to internal logistics and material efficiency. In 2010, a fluid and flow measurement bench for our valves was developed and realised with the East Bavarian Technical College Amberg-Weiden. Further cooperation takes place with Coburg College and the University of Bayreuth as well as Neuen Materialien Bayreuth and the Bavarian Laser Centre in Erlangen.
