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.
