At the Deloitte‘s Technology Fast 50 award ceremony in Berlin on October
20, 2010 LayTec was awarded for the second
time in a row as one of the 50 fastest growing technology companies in Germany.
The nomination is based on the total growth in sales within the last 5 years.
Between 2005 and 2009 LayTec increased its turnover by 241% and, therefore,
also belongs to the 500 fastest growing technology companies in Europe in 2010.
LayTec‘s president and founder Dr. Thomas Zettler regards the nomination
as a recognition of a successful technology transfer from research to industry,
“Among other factors, LayTec‘s continuous growth has been possible
thanks to its position at the interface between research and industry. Our R&D
department closely collaborates with research institutions in Germany and abroad,
and our efficient company structure makes it possible to launch the latest product
developments on the global market within a very short period of time.“
Founded in October 1999 as a spin-off of the Technical University Berlin, LayTec
quickly became a market leader in compound semiconductor process metrology,
especially for LED production. Since 2009, LayTec‘s integrated metrology
solutions have been also applied in solar cell production as well as other large
area deposition processes
