“Our technologies have enormous potential to make our customers’ applications even more successful,” says Markus Spanner, who is managing director since the beginning of the year. Markus Spanner has held managerial responsibility as managing director finance and controlling at PI over the last eleven years. “PI has a great deal of potential for growth in the future and we want to exploit more than ever before.”

He has established an extended management team to take a structured approach to achieving the new targets. He will be assisted by Dr. Peter Schittenhelm (COO), Dr. Markus Czanta (CTO), Stéphane Bussa (CSO) and Heiko Brehm (CFO).

Physik Instrumente employs more than 1,300 people all over the world and is represented at fifteen locations in Europe, North America, and Asia. The company is a market and technology leader for high-precision positioning in high-tech business sectors such as life sciences, semiconductor manufacturing, photonics, and industrial automation.
