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.
