The Chemnitz-based electronics company GEMAC streamlines its range of services and establishes two business units. In the course of a focus strategy, these will be seamlessly taken over by the newly founded company AMAC.
As part of the refocusing of its business activities, GEMAC — Gesellschaft für Mikroelectronikanwendung Chemnitz mbH is divesting the business units ASIC-Design and Interpolation. A separate company was founded for this step. The new company AMAC ASIC und Mikrosensoranwendung Chemnitz GmbH is based at the same location as GEMAC and started its official business operations on March 1, 2016. The main business areas of the new company are ASIC design (Application-Specific Integrated Circuit) and the development and sale of interpolation circuits and electronics. Dr. ‑Ing. Claus Dittrich (co-founder of GEMAC) and Dipl. ‑Ing. Peter Kreutziger (former head of the Systems and ASIC Design department of GEMAC) take over the management of AMAC.
In the course of this, GEMAC is streamlining its service and product portfolio and in the future will focus its activities on the development and production of electronics for third parties (primarily in the field of medical electronics) as well as Fieldbus diagnostic devices and inertial sensors for mobile machines.
The geographic proximity of the two companies, in particular, means that the managing directors of GEMAC and AMAC are certain that the transition will proceed almost smoothly and that the two companies will continue to work well together and exploit synergy effects. Due to the transfer of the employees, AMAC has access to over 23 years of know-how. For the customers concerned, only the name of the contractor is changed; quality and service remain the same as before.
