More high-tech in Silicon Saxony
Jenoptik is investing more than 70 million euros in new and state-of-the-art production facility for micro-optics and sensors. Discover more about the construction project and its progress, about the groundbreaking ceremony and the future design of the high-tech manufacturing facility.
Construction work on the Jenoptik Group’s new high-tech fab at Dresden Airport Park began on September 6, 2022 with a groundbreaking ceremony attended by Saxony’s Minister-President Michael Kretschmer and Mayor Stephan Kühn, Dresden’s Councillor for Urban Development, Construction, Transport and Real Estate. The two politicians ceremonially broke ground together with Jenoptik Executive Board members Stefan Traeger and Hans-Dieter Schumacher and other representatives of the photonics group.
Exactly one year after the groundbreaking ceremony, Jenoptik celebrated the topping-out ceremony for its new high-tech factory in Dresden on September 6, 2023. In addition to the parties involved in the construction, Jenoptik employees and neighboring companies from the industrial park were also present to join us in celebrating this milestone.
As construction progresses, the completion of the building sections is planned for the first half of 2024. This will be followed by the interior work in the second half of 2024. Production in the new factory is scheduled to start at the beginning of 2025.
Our new factory will be ready for manufacturing in 2025. We're confident to start operation as scheduled and invite you to become part of our Jenoptik team in Dresden today!
