Jenoptik awarded preferred supplier status for Carl Zeiss SMT AG

Jena, (PresseBox) - Jenoptik's Optical Systems division and Carl Zeiss SMT AG have concluded a comprehensive and long-term framework agreement for the development and supply of micro-optic components and systems. The intention is to expand the business relationship even further.

The basis for the even closer collaboration in the future was provided by the successful business relationships which Carl Zeiss SMT and Jenoptik have now maintained for approximately three years. The new contract which has been concluded makes Jenoptik one of the preferred suppliers from October this year. The range of products supplied covers optical and micro-optic components and systems which Jenoptik develops and manufactures at its Jena site. The agreement equally forms the basis for an expansion of the business relationships. Both parties have agreed not to disclose the extent of the business volume.

Carl Zeiss SMT attaches very special importance to Jenoptik as a German supplier that possesses a high level of technological know-how in the area of optics: "The affinity between us, not only in geographic terms but also with our highly innovative products, creates the optimum conditions required to enable both companies to derive benefits from this relationship" explains Peter Schlindwein, Head of Supply Chain Management at Carl Zeiss SMT. For Jenoptik the agreement is further evidence of the confidence shown in the company and represents an important step towards a long term business relationship.
