Facebook X LinkedIn Email
Carl Zeiss AG (ZEISS) will establish a dedicated photonics & optics business unit within the ZEISS Group starting in the 2024/25 fiscal year. The business unit will group together seven smaller, specialized units within the ZEISS Group, which will operate as independents.

The umbrella unit will include the ZEISS Group’s microoptics, spectroscopy, planetariums, and simulation projection solutions businesses from its current shared production unit, as well as the cinematography, mobile imaging, photo, and optics business for hunting and nature observation, currently under its consumer products business unit.

ZEISS holds all subsidiaries within Zeiss Group, and its largest subsidiaries are Carl Zeiss Meditec AG, Carl Zeiss Vision GmbH, Carl Zeiss SMT GmbH, Carl Zeiss IMT GmbH, and Carl Zeiss Microscopy GmbH. The ZEISS Group has approximately 43,000 employees across 50 countries. 

André Kutz, who currently heads strategic corporate development of the ZEISS Group, and Bernhard Ohnesorge, a member of the management board of the shared production unit of the ZEISS Group, will form the leadership of ZEISS Photonics & Optics.

The restructuring, the company said, will not result in changes for customers regarding products, services, or contacts. In addition, ZEISS said that it plans to acquire companies it has identified as having high growth potential, and to incorporate these acquisitions under the newly formed ZEISS Photonics & Optics umbrella.
