Excelitas Technologies subsidiary breaks ground on Göttingen facility

May 29, 2020
Qioptiq Göttingen will have cleanroom capacities of around 28,000 sq. ft. for the assembly of complex optical systems as well as for coating and other optical production processes.

Photonic solutions developer Excelitas Technologies (Waltham, MA) has announced that its Qioptiq subsidiary held a groundbreaking ceremony on May 18, 2020, to mark the beginning of construction for a new factory in Göttingen, Germany.

Qioptiq will invest about $27 million in this expansion of its production capacities. Located in the Göttingen Science Park industrial estate, the new site has an initial acreage of approximately 193,750 sq. ft. The facility will house ISO 5 cleanrooms and production-related offices, as well as the necessary logistics infrastructure. 

With the inclusion of these new facilities, Qioptiq Göttingen will have cleanroom capacities of around 28,000 sq. ft. for the assembly of complex optical systems as well as for coating and other optical production processes. The company had previously made substantial investments in new cleanrooms at its Göttingen Königsallee headquarters in 2012, 2015, and 2017. Once the new production building is completed, the overall production area will span over 86,000 sq. ft.
