As part of its successful strategic realignment, 3D-Micromac (Chemnitz, Germany), which specializes in laser micromachining and roll-to-roll laser processing systems, announces that a consortium of U.S. investors has acquired a majority stake in the company. Founder and previous majority shareholder Tino Petsch has sold part of his share package and will withdraw from the operative business. His former fellow board member, Uwe Wagner, will continue to manage the business of 3D-Micromac with overall responsibility.
Petsch founded 3D-Micromac in 2002, built it up over the years, and represented it as a board member. Together with Wagner, they advanced the company in recent years, putting 3D-Micromac on a solid economic footing despite the current difficult times. Petsch will remain with 3D-Micromac AG as a consultant and will continue to be associated with the company as a shareholder.
Wagner was appointed to the Management Board of 3D-Micromac in 2017 and was previously responsible for the technological and commercial management. He commenced his professional career at the Laser Zentrum Hannover (LZH). In the following years, he was responsible for product management, international sales, and the development of new business areas at LPKF Laser & Electronics, Jenoptik Automatisierungstechnik, and Jenoptik Laser, among others. He started in business development in 2012, was appointed chief sales officer in 2013, and took over the technological management as chief technology officer in 2017. In the same year, he was appointed to the Management Board.
Wagner is ideally qualified to successfully continue 3D-Micromac’s current path and to establish the company even more firmly as an innovator in growth markets such as the semiconductor and display industries.
