Dieter Manz, Manz Automation CEO said, “We have succeeded in acquiring top-quality specialists for the design and development of vacuum-coating equipment. That is why we are very confident that, within the briefest of development periods, and that means in 2011, we will be able to launch the first innovative machines on the market.”

“This is a decisive step for positioning Manz Automation as a provider of technology and process machines, and, in particular, to future-proof the entire group. This not only rounds out our product range, but also creates a broader technology footing to achieve future increases in efficiency for products in all of our company’s divisions,” Manz continued.
