LayTec ranked 30th out of Germany's top 50 fastest growing companies

LayTec GmbH of Berlin, Germany, which provides in-situ thin-film monitoring systems, has been ranked 30th among the 50 fastest growing companies in Germany, at Deloitte‘s Technology Fast 50 award ceremony, which took place in Hamburg on 21 October 2009. Deloitte provides audit, tax, consulting, and financial advisory services to public and private clients.

“This award recognises LayTec’s extraordinary work in both its innovative development of metrology products and its successful organic growth strategy. We owe this success to the high commitment and dedication of the company’s employees and to the close collaboration with customers and business partners worldwide,” said LayTec’s president and founder, Dr Thomas Zettler.

Founded in October 1999, as a spin-off of the Technical University Berlin, LayTec says it quickly became a market leader in compound semiconductor process monitoring instrumentation, especially for LED production. Between 2004 and 2008 the firm increased its turnover by 378%.

In 2007, LayTec recognized the strong potential for its products among thin-film solar cell producers, and after less than a year of development launched its first in-line monitoring system for photovoltaic thin-film applications.
