Jenoptik is firmly committed to marching forward as a full service player in the automation joining systems market, which includes laser cutting and welding”, stated Keith LaPointe, VP of BU Laser Processing, North America.
“We look forward to the new opportunities the large manufacturing campus will provide and the partnerships that will be the result of their success”, adds Hans-Dieter Schumacher, Jenoptik CFO and head of the Automotive division.
