TOPTICA welcomes its new Vice President Production & Logistics, Dr. Mathias Schindler, starting as of April 1st, 2017. He is the successor of Walter Kraus, who over many years has built up the TOPTICA production department, starting from humble beginnings to its present size and power, and who is going to retire within the next year.

Dr. Schindler earned his Ph.D. in Electronics Engineering from the RWTH Aachen and he has worked in microelectronics, semiconductors and terahertz spectroscopy. He brings already 10 years of manufacturing experience acquired at a world-renowned manufacturer of high precision industrial measurement devices. At TOPTICA, Dr. Schindler is challenged to guide the company to a new level of volume manufacturing competency, introducing modern production and planning tools and processes.

„We are happy to include a dynamic and experienced new member in our management team who will direct our company to the next level of production expertise“, says Dr. Thomas Weber (Vorstand of TOPTICA Group). “Next to our proven capability to manufacture cutting-edge scientific laser systems, TOPTICA will further improve its capability to serve industrial customers also in volumes in the 1000 units/yr. range.” And he adds: “We thank Walter Kraus for his highly dedicated and competent contribution within the last 17 years. He was instrumental to TOPTICA’s successful growth story.”
