New home with state-of-the-art laboratories and modern drawing tower

An extraordinary move culminated in the company settling in its own innovative headquarters. FBGS, a sensor specialist from Jena, recently opened the doors at a new location. The company previously operated out of rented space but now has a modern 2,000 square foot headquarters.

The new location offers sufficient space for the development and mass production of home-grown fiber optic sensors and components. The investment also included the installation of state-of-the-art equipment – the new site now houses physical and chemical laboratories, offices and meeting rooms, as well as its own fiber draw tower, with two more to follow. Today, about 20 employees work here under ideal conditions; the company’s products are widely used in the industrial, energy, construction and medical sectors, among others. The move itself was a major challenge. Sensitive laser and alignment systems had to be packed and unpacked, production lines had to be kept running or rebuilt in the clean room at the old and new locations and, of course, deliveries to customers worldwide had to be guaranteed at the same time. The move to the new site will enable the company, which was founded in 2005 as a spin-off from the Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technology (IPHT), to scale up production and continue growing. (hw)
