A state-of-the-art research and development is currently being built at the IST METZ headquarters in Nürtingen, southern Germany. The so-called LEDlab is a strategic step towards consolidating the company’s leading position in the market for curing solutions. The aim of the investment in research and development is to make the already sustainable technology even more efficient and also to make UV-LED attractive for new markets. In the new competence center, a team of technology experts from both companies is researching and developing the next generation of high-performance and sustainable UV LED systems.
Tim Sterbak, Managing Director at IST METZ, says of the new company alignment, "We are leveraging Integration Technology's decades of LED expertise to create joint synergies. In particular, the LEDLab is an important milestone in the joint alignment of LED technology to strengthen the companies' position in the market and drive growth."
