At the end of a turbulent but yet successful year 2020, VITRONIC’s Polish subsidiary has been recognized for its achievements by winning the 2020 Symbol award. Conferred by the Chapter of the Symbol Program, the prestigious nationwide accolade has been awarded annually since 2011 and celebrates innovative achievements in the field of vision technologies.
The Symbol award honors companies and institutions characterized by innovation and understand the prestige in carving an unignorable spot at the pinnacle of an industry. The long list of awarded brands operating at the cutting edge in Poland includes Energa, KGHM, Kaspersky, Lotos and PKP Intercity.
The award counts as one of the many successes our Polish colleagues have savored through delivering high-quality automated and digitalized workflows to a host of satisfied customers over the years. Since VITRONIC first opened its doors for business 35 years ago, we have striven for excellence in all our endeavors, developing a reputation for world-class quality of service across all our branches. Now we are active on five continents with an amazing team.
VITRONIC Machine Vision Polska has been recognized for its revolutionary work in creating vision systems that are applied in logistics as well as smart traffic solutions. In the growing e-commerce market, VITRONIC’s solutions automize supply chain processes with high-performance hardware and precision software that identifies packages and even recognizes handwriting.
The technology optimizes existing processes at courier companies such that, within 8 hours, as many as 100,000 packages are read at conveyor speeds of up to 4.5 m/sec. Moreover, it can be implemented without changing the well-oiled processes within the company, reducing investment expenditure. With the new so-called Enforcement Bar, VITRONIC will provide a machine vision solution supporting the electronic toll collection system in Poland, a system under the competence of the National Revenue Administration (KAS).
The Enforcement Bar will apply a technology called LIDAR to recognize license plates and vehicle classification. Upon first sight, the Enforcement Bar is simply a light beam mounted on the railing of a priority car, commonly known in Poland as a "rooster". This beam is equipped with, among others, laser sensors, antennas, a router and a set of cameras that monitor the area around the patrolling vehicle. It delivers data that will support public bodies such as the police or other law enforcement organizations to identify vehicles and their owners faster and more reliably. In 2021, VITRONIC will also provide another 102 road patrol vehicles equipped with similar solutions.
VITRONIC is the world's leading innovation driver for machine vision, enabling its customers to master the challenges of tomorrow.
The family owned group of companies develops forward-looking solutions in the form of specialized products and software for image-based quality inspection, identification and process optimization, which find application in the growth sectors of automation and traffic engineering.
VITRONIC solutions make an important contribution to helping shape a safe and sustainable world. The existing limits of what is economically feasible are constantly being questioned in order to achieve the highest quality and productivity, for example in the production of automotive and pharmaceutical companies. Worldwide, Auto-ID solutions in logistics centers and at cargo airports, take over the reliable and efficient recording of shipments and thus ensure a transparent flow of goods.
In the transport sector, VITRONIC offers leading technology for increased safety on the roads, for optimizing traffic flow and for recording road usage.
Open and honest dealings with our customers form the foundation for jointly exploiting technological and process potential to the full. Joint success forms the basis of long-term cooperation with companies such as B. Braun, BMW, Daimler, DHL, UPS, Toll Collect, Fresenius and Sanofi as well as with public clients.
Since its foundation in 1984, VITRONIC has been growing continuously for almost 40 years. The current annual turnover (2022) is 208 million EUR and the company is currently represented on five continents in over 80 countries with 1,400 employees.
Development and production of VITRONIC systems are located at the company headquarters in Wiesbaden. VITRONIC subsidiaries in North America, Europe, Asia and Australia, as well as a worldwide network of sales and service partners, provide local support to international customers.
