Photonics West and customer visits in USA

Peter Grundschok and Peter Viglas at our booth

From 28th January until 2nd February 2017 the company SIOS Meßtechnik GmbH was at the SPIE Photonics West fair in San Francisco and acted as a co-exhibitor at the booth of the US representative Piezosystem jena, Inc.

In many customer meetings the great interest in the Calibration Laser Interferometer SP 15000 C5 has became apparent. The promising new contacts will be used now for opening up of new international markets especially in the range of machine calibration.

In connection with the fair our sales manager Mr. Peter Grundschok visited standing and potential customers together with our US-american colleague Mr. Peter Viglas from piezosystem jena. Thereby the Calibration Laser Interferometer SP 15000 C5 took center of the discussions as well.

In addition to famous companies of the industrial sectors of optics and machine tools the renowned Massachusetts Institute of Technology MIT was a important part of the visitation program.

Meet the Dutch in Jena

Her Majesties King Willem Alexander the Netherlands and Queen Máxima paid a visit to the federal states of Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt and Thuringia from 7 to 10 February 2017.
At the same time Mrs. Lilianne Ploumen, Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation, came to Germany with a delegation of Dutch companies from the fields of photonics, semiconductor technology, bio-based chemistry and water. The aim of this trip was the promotion of mutual trade and investment, as well as technological cooperation.

As part of the delegation visit, on 8 February 2017, there was an event at the Beutenberg Campus Jena with various lectures and a business matching around the optics and semiconductor industry, in which the SIOS also took part. The meeting provided a good opportunity for German and Dutch companies and scientific institutions from the fields of optics, photonics and semiconductor technologies to get to know the respective markets, intensify existing contacts and establish new contacts.
