VITRONIC is a medium-sized, owner-managed group of companies comprising VITRONIC GmbH with its headquarters in Wiesbaden and several international subsidiaries. Since its establishment in 1984, the group has grown on the strength of its own resources. Today, we are represented on four continents and are a world leader in industrial machine vision. In 2015, the VITRONIC Group generated total revenue of more than 110 million euros.
We are a reliable partner for our customers and suppliers. Our ownership structure ensures continuity of management and frees us from the need to create shareholder value. This, in turn, ensures our ability to pursue our long-term goals.
Around the globe, 700 employees strive to ensure that VITRONIC meets the individual needs of our customers. Our employees are our most important value driver. Nearly 50 percent of them are highly qualified specialists with a university degree.
VITRONIC products are state-of-the-art and are guaranteed to offer our customers maximum benefits. To this end, VITRONIC invests over 10 percent of total revenue each year in research and development. We develop, manufacture and sell all of our systems ourselves.
Our products rightly carry the "Made in Germany" seal of quality, and we are proud of our outstanding quality standards. Our Research, Development, Design and Production departments are based at company HQ in Wiesbaden, together with our administrative offices. In addition to our central Service and Sales teams in Wiesbaden, our international subsidiaries also offer an excellent level of local service and sales.
In our core sectors of industrial automation, logistics automation and traffic technology, we offer our customers a vast store of experience acquired over the last 30 years. From standard products with customer-specific upgradeable modules to individually customized solutions, our approach is to work together to define objectives and conduct analyses before developing solution concepts. For the professional management of projects of all sizes – from single contracts to projects with values of tens of millions of euros - experienced project managers, trained in the PRINCE2 methodology, are available at VITRONIC.
Industrial and Logistics Automation
VITRONIC machine vision systems are used in a wide range of industrial applications to carry out precise or complex inspection tasks. Our automated solutions ensure the highest quality standards of welded and brazed seams and are used, for example, in the automotive and aerospace industries. We also offer flexible surface quality inspection for metal workpieces and endless material.
We support the pharmaceutical industry with seamless print, surface and geometry inspection systems, quality inspection and track-and-trace inspection solutions – which can also be validated thanks to our GAMP certification. For manufacturers of solar cells and modules, we are one of the largest independent partners for optical inspection systems, with over 1,000 installations worldwide.
Our customers in the area of material flow, parcel logistics and mail order seek to optimize their logistics processes. VIPAC systems from VITRONIC can be integrated at any point along the process chain for the automatic capture of product data, package data and customer-specific data. VIPAC reads addresses, barcodes, 2D codes, customer-specific codes and plain text (OCR) with maximum read rates, and measures and weighs packages online. This information is sent directly to the connected ERP system or CRM solution.
VIPAC systems are used by global logistics companies in the courier, express and parcel sector and in mail order, warehousing and distribution, and the manufacturing industry.
VITRONIC's core competency in the traffic technology sector is the monitoring of vehicles in moving traffic. With our POLISCAN family of products, we offer national agencies and private service providers systems for speed enforcement, red light enforcement and number plate recognition. Toll system operators use our TOLLCHECKER system to automate toll collection and toll enforcement. All VITRONIC traffic enforcement systems are based on laser scanner measurement technology (LIDAR, Light Detection and Ranging). This innovation enables high-precision measurements over several lanes of traffic and eliminates the need to integrate equipment into the road surface. Thanks to the benefits offered by LIDAR technology, more than 5,000 VITRONIC laser scanners are currently used in traffic enforcement across the globe.
