Our machine vision technology ensures safe processes in a wide range of industries from automotive to logistics to traffic monitoring, and has been doing so for almost 40 years. As a family-owned company with more than 1,300 employees, long-term partnerships form our foundation. On this basis, we push the boundaries of what is possible by acting sustainably in order to really make a difference.
Machine vision technology is one of the drivers of high-grade automation and slim, highly digitalized workflows. We have specialized in machine vision systems for use in specific sectors. That means we can focus clearly on the special requirements in these sectors. And 35 years of experience of communicating directly with customers throughout the world means we have a wealth of knowledge that continually re-emerges through our solutions and services.
That creates lasting quality and reliability in our tried and tested standard products as well as customer-specific upgradeable modules and individually customized solutions, all of which we can offer at a cost-efficient price. That’s what has made us one of the world’s leading companies in machine vision technology.
Technology has got a special task – to shape our lifes to the better. Machine vision technology especially has got the task to shape our lifes for a safe and sustainable future.
Our systems are used, for example, to check the weld seams in automotive manufacturing and smooth the way for high-performance automation. VITRONIC's machine vision systems ensure that goods flow smoothly and efficiently. We use state-of-the art technology to optimize workflows, reduce costs and improve quality and outputs.
VITRONIC systems are also used to check that pharmaceutical products and medical devices such as insulin pens are manufactured correctly, and to monitor traffic speed limits around the world through what are generally known as “flash units”. Our toll systems fund the infrastructure operated by our customers. And much much more.
We pursue a partnership approach. We listen carefully, define our goals with our customers and analyze the details. We always end up with a precise, robust system that meets the trickiest of requirements.
Our concept of service goes far beyond looking after the systems produced by us. We see ourselves as a solution-oriented partner: We help our customers to optimize their processes, always with an eye to the context in which they are used.
And of course we also provide support on compliance requirements or certification. And we have experienced project managers with PRINCE2 certification available for professional management of projects of all sizes—from single contracts to projects with values of tens of millions of euros.
Despite being a global player with branch offices on almost all continents, we still manage to retain a family atmosphere. VITRONIC’s founder Dr. Norbert Stein handed over the CEO post in 2020 to the next generation, Daniel Scholz-Stein. Partly because of our distinctive ownership structure, our company looks beyond shareholder value and focuses on continuity, long-term quality and enthusiasm about the future.
It helps that we develop, produce and distribute all our systems ourselves. That’s why our products have the “Made in Germany” sign.
Most of our 1,300 employees work at our headquarters in Wiesbaden - 900, to be exact. The Research, Development, Design Engineering, Production and Administration departments are based there. Our international subsidiaries at our global locations offer outstanding service and on-site sales with a focus on the local environment with a number of around 400 employees.
I like the fact that despite our size we have been able to maintain our family nature.
