INGENERIC Breaks Ground on New German Facility

AACHEN, Germany, July 13, 2018 — Micro-optic component developer INGENERIC GmbH has begun construction of a new company building in Baesweiler, Germany.

The building, which is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2019, will provide space for the current 80 employees, with reserves for further expansion. INGENERIC has been based in the Technology Centre AGIT in Aachen since its foundation in 2001, and in 2015 it outsourced some capacities to Baesweiler, about 20 km away. Now, the company says its growth requires a new facility.

The new production hall covers a gross area of about 2700 m². The hall will provide around 800 m² of cleanroom space for the production and finishing of optical elements, along with the assembly of optical modules and laser systems. There is also approximately 600 m² for air-conditioned processing space for ultraprecision manufacturing, where temperatures are partially controlled to within +/−0.5 °C. The attached office building for development, sales, and administration will offer >1000 m² gross floor space. With 10,000 m² of space, the site offers the potential for further expansion.

“The new building and its infrastructure exactly meet our requirements for the efficient production of ultraprecision optics,” said Olaf Ruebenach, co-founder and a managing director of INGENERIC. “Not only will we have enough space for the current production volume, we can also continue to expand. Micro-optics is one of the major pacesetting technologies of the 21st century, and we expect significant growth rates.”

Planning and construction of the building is carried out in cooperation with TRUMPF GmbH Co. KG, which, as the parent company of INGENERIC, is also the builder-owner. The building is expected to be ready for occupancy by the end of 2019.

INGENERIC develops and manufactures high-precision micro-optic components for high-power applications, along with optical and laser systems that include fiber couplers, homogenizers, and collimation modules for science, medicine, and measurement technology.
