“News” is sometimes relative: Already at the beginning of the year, Hüttinger turned 100. For almost a third of that time, since 1990, Hüttinger has been the electronics subsidiary of the mechanical engineering and laser specialist Trumpf. A belated congratulations.
In 1922, the electrical engineer Fritz Hüttinger founded the company of the same name for the manufacture of electrical apparatus in Freiburg. A century later, the Trumpf Elektronik subsidiary is a market leader for various high-tech generators. They are used in a wide variety of applications: they ensure the power supply for industrial lasers, generate plasma for the production of semiconductors, and harness the electricity from solar cells. The high-tech products are also needed in medical equipment such as computer tomographs.
The electronics company has been part of the Trumpf Group for more than 30 years. Around 500 employees work at the site in Freiburg, and just over 700 at the plant in Warsaw. Sales in the current fiscal year are expected to exceed 300 million euros.
“The Electronics business field in Freiburg and Warsaw represents a central building block of the Trumpf portfolio and is very significant for us. It will have a great future with regard to semiconductor production and the use of renewable energies. In this context, in addition to the business aspects, I am happy about the close connection between Germany and Poland that we live in electronics,” said Trumpf CEO Nicola Leibinger-Kammüller.
Nicole Hoffmeister-Kraut, Minister for Economic Affairs, Labor and Tourism of the State of Baden-Württemberg, emphasized during the anniversary celebration: “It is a great signal for Baden-Württemberg as a business location that the high-tech company Trumpf Hüttinger is celebrating its 100th anniversary. As a subsidiary of the well-known company Trumpf in Ditzingen, Trumpf Hüttinger supplies important industries in the state with excellent and high-quality products as a leading supplier of process energy technologies such as plasma or induction generators. I congratulate the company on this long history and wish it continued success.”
