Massachusetts-based Excelitas Technologies, an industrial technology manufacturer focused on delivering innovative photonic solutions, has opened a new plant in Göttingen, Germany. The new facility will assemble optomechanical systems and components for the semiconductor industry.

The company has invested approximately $29.2m in facilities and an additional $5.85m in capital equipment, including a photovoltaic system, a state-of-the-art automated material warehouse and an ultrasonic cleaning system.

The new production facility offers 6,700m2 of space, including 1,500m2 of dedicated Class 5 cleanroom.

Chief operating officer Joel M Falcone commented: “Despite the significant complexity of this project requiring highly qualified external and internal resources in the midst of a pandemic, all parties, including strong local government support, have worked together to complete the construction of our new facility on time and on budget.”

Excelitas Technologies operates five production facilities in Germany in Feldkirchen, Göttingen, Asslar, Wiesbaden and Regen. The company recently acquired PCO in Kelheim, further expanding its operational footprint across the country as well as extending its product portfolio to include high-performance scientific CMOS camera technology for biomedical and industrial imaging applications.
