Jenoptik to expand its optics manufacturing capacities in Dresden

June 2, 2021
The expansion will meet the increasing demand for optics and sensors for the semiconductor industry.

As a result of the rising demand for optics and sensors for the semiconductor industry, Jenoptik (headquartered in Jena, Germany) intends to expand its manufacturing capacities and invest in a manufacturing building and office complex at its Dresden, Germany site. The company acquired a 260,000-sq-ft. plot of land in the Airportpark Dresden in May 2021.

Within Germany, Dresden is part of an important region for the semiconductor industry, with many global companies and research institutes located there. Planning for a new cleanroom building and a modern office complex has begun and should be ready for approval over the course of 2021. At the moment, construction is scheduled to begin in the second half of 2022, with production at the new factory starting in early 2025. Jenoptik will announce further details once planning will have been completed.

As a development and production partner for optical and micro-optical systems, Jenoptik is involved in the development and introduction of future lithography technologies in semiconductor manufacturing. The company, especially its Light & Optics division, draws on more than 150 years of expertise in optics, sensor technology, and precision mechanics.

Jenoptik has had a direct presence in Dresden since 2007 and is there part of a cooperation network consisting of research institutes and industrial partners. The photonics company designs and produces optical components using lithographic processes as well as precision sensor modules.
