Photonics Systems Group, a manufacturer of micro-materials processing laser machines, has acquired EPP, a high-tech systems supplier in the electronics industry.

Photonics Systems Group will leverage the acquisition to strengthen distribution, service, and applications – all of which are core areas of EPP's expertise. This will lay the groundwork required for the group’s further growth in the electronics industry. In addition, the acquisition will make it possible to attend to long-time customers even better and provide them with new, innovative products in the future.

Markus Nicht, the group's CEO, is pleased to see the new company joining his group: ‘EPP has an excellent understanding of customers and outstanding expertise in trimmer applications. The acquisition will allow us to offer our customers even better products and service. Moreover, all of the group companies have their roots in Munich and share similar cultures and values.’

EPP was founded over 30 years ago and since then has grown steadily while building an excellent reputation with customers as a customer-focused, reliable, and innovative partner. ‘With our move to sell EPP, we are protecting the future of our company in advance and ensuring that the existing jobs will stay in place in the long run,’ said Bryan Burton, managing director of EPP.

The owners of Photonics Systems Group are seeking above-average growth rates in the coming years for the entire group. Growth is to be achieved both organically and through further add-on investments. Photonics Systems Group aims to create more jobs in the years ahead through its expansion. Other companies in the group include Innolas solutions and Laser Systems.
