More high-tech in Silicon Saxony
Jenoptik is investing more than 70 million euros in new and state-of-the-art production facility for micro-optics and sensors. Discover more about the construction project and its progress, about the groundbreaking ceremony and the future design of the high-tech manufacturing facility.
Construction work on the Jenoptik Group’s new high-tech fab at Dresden Airport Park began on September 6, 2022 with a groundbreaking ceremony attended by Saxony’s Minister-President Michael Kretschmer and Mayor Stephan Kühn, Dresden’s Councillor for Urban Development, Construction, Transport and Real Estate. The two politicians ceremonially broke ground together with Jenoptik Executive Board members Stefan Traeger and Hans-Dieter Schumacher and other representatives of the photonics group.
