PI Group adds new Member to its Roster of Companies - PI Innovation founded

PI (Physik Instrumente), known for innovative precision motion control solutions, has founded a new company with the sole focus of innovation.

The investment in PI Innovation GmbH underlines the PI Group’s commitment to continued progress and growth. The main objective of PI’s new operation in the age of Industry 4.0 is to think outside of the box and speed up development of innovative technologies and products based on early market trends and customer input.

With Lucius Amelung, founder of precision opto-mechanical systems specialist PImiCos GmbH, participating as one of the managing directors, the new venture starts with the perfect ingredients for success. He takes on this new challenge with a great deal of pride and enthusiasm. In order to put the same energy into the interests of the new company as he did for PI miCos, Amelung now hands it over to Dr. Peter Schittenhelm after 28 years of successful management. Dr. Schittenhelm will take on this function in conjunction with his responsibilities as Chief Operations Officer (COO) of the PI Group. In addition to Lucius Amelung, Markus Spanner, Managing Director Finance & Controlling (CFO) of the PI Group, will also be a member of the General Management of PI Innovation GmbH.

During the course of the change in the General Management, PI (Physik Instrumente) GmbH & Co. KG also acquires the remaining shares of PI miCos, making it a wholly-owned subsidiary with the focus to become the center of expertise for motorized precision positioners and automation sub-systems within the PI Group.
