navThe Karlsruhe-based company PI has recently become co-owner of miCos GmbH in Eschbach, Germany. This allows PI to supplement its extensive micro- and nanopositioning portfolio with a specialist in the field of vacuum applications and system integration. PI thereby expands its range of fast, high-precision system solutions, especially in the area of micropositioning, with air bearing technology and linear motors, for example.

navIn the future, PI miCos will function as a subsidiary of PI GmbH & Co. KG. Lucius Amelung will remain Managing Director. Dr. Karl Spanner, Managing Director of PI, is pleased with the success of the negotiations: "We expect a lot from the synergy effects of this integration and are looking forward to the related challenges and a successful cooperation. Our use of common resources - such as technical know-how, many years of experience, highly qualified employees and extensive industry knowledge – opens up new potentials.“
navLucius Amelung, Managing Director of miCos GmbH, sees only advantages for customers and the company as a result of the merger with PI: "We have found a strong, experienced partner in PI. Cooperation with the technological leader in nanopositioning technology and piezoelectric drives opens up new possibilities for us to develop high-quality, innovative products. We are acquiring a new global presence while maintaining our product portfolio, the Eschbach location and the contacts for our customers." The integration process of the two successful companies will be quickly implemented in the coming months. Date 09/2011

Over the last four decades, the Karlsruhe-based company has become the leading manufacturer of nanopositioning technology. PI is a private company with healthy growth, more than 600 employees world-wide and a flexible, vertically integrated organization which enables PI to fulfill almost any request in the field of innovative precision positioning technology. All key technologies are developed in-house. This means that every phase from the design right down to the shipment can be controlled: The precision mechanics and the electronics as well as the position sensors and the piezo ceramics or actuators. The latter are produced by the subsidiary company PI Ceramic. PI has its own sales and service offices at eight important business locations. Moreover, the company maintains testing devices for nanometrology on three continents. PI Shanghai and PI USA have additional development and manufacturing resources which allow rapid local reaction to custom-engineered specifications.
