Jenoptik receives Preferred Supplier Award from Leica

Share this on social media:

The Digital Imaging business unit of Jenoptik's Optical Systems division has been awarded the Preferred Supplier Award from Leica Systems AG for the production of the components for the Leica M9 range-finder camera.

Jenoptik developed the electronic core components in conjunction with Leica and transferred them to mass production at the Jena site. Jenoptik has since delivered four times the originally planned volume of units, ensuring that volume production maintained its high quality standard at all times.

As a result of the success of the Leica M9 the parties agreed a further increase in the production volume.

'Once again Jenoptik has demonstrated the strength of its performance in the field of optoelectronic modules and digital imaging systems,' said Rudolf Spiller, chairman of Leica Camera AG.

Dr Dirk-Michael Rothweiler, head of the Optical Systems division and member of the executive management board of the Jenoptik Group, commented: 'We have fulfilled the stringent requirements of our partner in terms of production volume and quality at all times and, as such, have made an important contribution towards the success of the M9, something of which we are proud.'

In its Digital Imaging business unit Jenoptik specialises in the development and manufacture of high-performance digital imaging systems. The components, modules and systems are used in digital photography, microscopy, including, among others, applications for life sciences, biotechnology as well as in the areas of industrial metrology and traffic safety.
