Kappa optronics GmbH: Circle of shareholders expanded
Johannes Overhues, CEO, and Sebastian Vreemann, CSO, are co-shareholders of Kappa optronics GmbH, the Göttingen-based specialist for "cameras and vision systems for everything that drives and flies". The investment was welcomed as a strong signal by both the investor group and the workforce. "With our commitment, we show that we are 100% behind the company. We believe in the sustainable success of the company's strategy, even though the general economic situation is challenging. Kappa has fundamentally repositioned itself over the past 2 years, and a great international team has grown together. The capital increase gives us further room for development," says Overhues. Vreemann adds: "In some areas of vision systems for aviation, defense and automotive, we are technical leaders with our strong products. Kappa has very exciting market opportunities right now."
The capital increase will enable further investments with the aim of dynamically developing the company. Following the establishment of a new branch in Madrid, the reinforcement of the international development team and the systematic expansion of the technology portfolio, the most recent step was the strategic technology acquisition of Schmid Engineering GmbH in May. Further steps are already in the pipeline, says Overhues.
