Mar­poss takes over all Jen­op­tik employees at the main site in Peseux, Switz­er­land, as well as in Ratin­gen and Lud­wigs­burg, Ger­many, 40 people in total. In 2020, Jen­op­tik gene­ra­ted reve­nue of around 7 mil­lion euros with pro­cess metro­logy for grin­ding machines.

With the sale, Jen­op­tik is focu­sing more stron­gly on those metro­logy areas in which the group is well posi­tio­ned on the glo­bal mar­ket, and is dive­s­ting smal­ler, highly spe­cia­li­zed, non-opti­cal acti­vi­ties in its Light & Pro­duc­tion divi­sion. »We have found a part­ner and new ›best owner‹ for the pro­cess metro­logy busi­ness in the Mar­poss Group. As a glo­bal sup­plier and metro­logy spe­cia­list, Mar­poss offers very good deve­lo­p­ment oppor­tu­nities for this unit,« said Jenoptik’s Pre­si­dent & CEO Ste­fan Traeger.

The pro­cess mea­su­re­ment tech­no­logy sold by Jen­op­tik spe­ci­fi­cally addres­ses pro­duc­tion opti­miz­a­tion and qua­lity assurance in grin­ding pro­ces­ses, par­ti­cu­larly in the auto­mo­tive indus­try. In addi­tion to the qua­lity of the work pie­ces, pro­cess relia­bi­lity is also gua­ran­teed, as con­trol sys­tems also auto­ma­ti­cally com­pen­sate tole­rance fluc­tua­tions. These occur, for example, when grin­ding disks wear out or as a result of tem­pe­ra­ture fluc­tua­tions. Pro­cess con­trol sys­tems cap­ture the mea­su­red values in real time and thus con­ti­nuously con­trol the grin­ding process.

Both par­ties agreed not to dis­c­lose any details of the tran­sac­tion or the purchase price. The clo­sing of the tran­sac­tion is expec­ted at the end of July / begin­ning of August 2021.
