Our Formula for Success: Innovation und Customer Orientation

Since its foundation in 1995 HIGHYAG has contributed decisively to perfect the industrial use of laser technology. From the beginning we were one of those who have shaped the application of solid state lasers for industrial manufacturing. Volkswagen was the first automotive manufacturer using laser welding heads from HIGHYAG in their mass production. In the past years our customer portfolio, applications and number of employees have grown rapidly. Today, HIGHYAG is one of the world's leading suppliers of tools for laser material processing. It has sales offices in the US, Asia and Europe.

Since 2008 the US-based technology group and laser pioneer II-VI Incorporated (NASDAQ: II-VI) held a majority share in HIGHYAG.  We became a wholly-owned subsidiary of II-VI in 2013.

In 2012 we set a benchmark in laser cutting technology by offering a fully-automated, machine controlled adjustment of focus diameter and focus position. To meet the growing demand we moved to a new tailor-made corporate building of 6.000 m2 in the industry park Dreilinden just outside of Berlin. State-of-the-art production areas with clean rooms and application laboratories offer a new quality standard.

We work closely with our customers to ensure their satisfaction by staying focused on our mission: By high-quality products we get the laser beam – the performance – to the point.
