Fit for the future: The company, founded in 2008, invests in state-of-the-art industrial computed tomography technology and thus strengthens the non-destructive testing of components for the automotive, foundry and aerospace industries.
The project is supported by funding from the Joint Task "Improvement of the Regional Economic Structure" (GRW). The Minister for Economy, Prof. Dr. Armin Willingmann, handed over the grant of more than one million euros to the managing directors Prof. Dr. Lutz Hagner and Dr. Matthias Hagner today. Microvista GmbH currently has around 10 employees and is investing a good two million euros in total. Three new jobs are to be created.
Willingmann said: "Innovation is the basis for sustainable economic success. Those who invest in modern technologies remain fit for the future and are ahead of the competition. We will continue to promote these investments to secure growth and prosperity. I am pleased that Microvista is also looking firmly to the future, despite its demanding day-to-day business."
Managing Director Prof. Dr. Lutz Hagner emphasized, "Since 2008, we have been enabling many companies to look inside components using CT scans, making everyday life safer. The investment in the state-of-the-art industrial CT will enable even sharper images in 2D and 3D in the future, as well as scanning of larger components. In this way, we are also adapting to current trends such as e-mobility, which we want to make even safer with our reliable inspection processes."
