HENSOLDT Invests in New Location in Southern Germany

Date: Issue 114 - July 2022

The Optronics Division of sensor solutions provider HENSOLDT will have a new production and administration site by 2025. The construction project is planned in Oberkochen (Baden-Württemberg), where HENSOLDT Optronics GmbH already has its headquarters. In addition to situational awareness systems such as SETAS and periscopes for armored vehicles, approximately 800 employees also manufacture submarine periscopes and optical and laser systems for applications in space. In the coming years, HENSOLDT will invest a sum in the order of 100 million euros in a new location here. 

With the new building, the HENSOLDT Group is not only responding to the steadily growing demand for high-performance military equipment for the German Armed Forces and the members of NATO, but also to the ever-increasing demand from manufacturers of lithography systems for the semiconductor industry, who purchase high-precision optronic measuring equipment from HENSOLDT Optronics.
