Scienta Omicron Ships SPM System from Factory Site in Germany

May 15th, 2020

Scienta Omicron is an international company with headquarters and factories in Uppsala, Sweden and Taunusstein, Germany. We are pleased to share that we have recently shipped a LT SPM Lab to a customer in China. This LT SPM Lab is the first system to be partly built and tested in the recently founded SPM and XPS Business Unit in Taunusstein. The new SPM and XPS Business Unit was formed after the merger with Sigma Surface Science and has been operating out of these premises since February 2020.

“While it has been a challenge for Scienta Omicron to establish a new factory site and deliver systems during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are very happy to report that both our Swedish and German factories have remained operational throughout the crisis. We have followed advice from the Swedish and German Governments closely, including implementing a range of health and hygiene practices. By adopting these new work practices, we have been able to keep our factory sites open and have continued to deliver new systems, perform service work, and continue Research and Development projects, all while keeping our staff safe,” says Chief Operating Officer Henrik Bergersen.

We are pleased and thankful that the COVID-19 threat has now reduced in some regions of the world for our customers and staff. As regions begin to re-open, we look forward to supporting our customers to restart their research by assisting with system start up procedures and system maintenance.  

If we can support your research needs with either new systems, or service support on existing systems, please contact us. It is our goal to help your research succeed.
