The story behind LayTec
Founded in 1999, LayTec has quickly become the world market leader in the field of in-situ metrology for LED and LASER production. In 2008, LayTec started to market its proven expertise for R&D and industrial applications beyond the semiconductor industry: we developed advanced in-line metrology solutions for large-area deposition techniques such as amorphous, polycrystalline and organic thin-films in PV and display industries. In 2009, 2010, and 2011, LayTec was ranked as one of the 50 fastest-growing technology companies in Germany. In 2011, LayTec acquired the assets of the former competitor ORS (Optical Reference Systems), which is now LayTec UK. The new subsidiary adds further valuable technologies to LayTec metrology portfolio.
Currently, the company has more than 2000 metrology systems installed at customer sites around the world, 75% of which are in Asia, 10% in North America and 15% in Europe. LayTec offers a worldwide customer support and service network including local representatives.
