Highyag moves to larger facilities

Highyag Lasertechnologie, a leading supplier in the laser material processing industry, has opened a new head office located in Kleinmachnow, just outside of Berlin. The new building includes a production hall of 3,500m2, two clean rooms, optics laboratories, applications laboratories and offices. Highyag has made significant investments in specialised equipment for the production hall, clean rooms and applications laboratories.

Currently, 140 employees work at Highyag, but the company expects this to rise throughout with new employees hired in production, production planning, R&D, engineering, and other areas.

Highyag, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of US company II-VI Incorporated, has grown substantially in recent years thanks to the rapidly expanding adoption of high power fibre and direct diode lasers for advanced manufacturing.
