Manz AG – Passion for Efficiency

Who We Are

As one of the world's leading high-tech equipment manufacturers, Manz AG, based in Reutlingen, Germany, is a pioneer for innovative products in fast-growing markets. The company, founded in 1987 (see history), has expertise in six technology sectors: automation, metrology, laser processing, wet chemistry, printing and coating, as well as roll-to-roll processes. Manz deploys and further develops these technologies in three strategic fields, the "Electronics," "Solar" and "Energy Storage" business segments.

We are a medium-sized, family-run company led by founder Dieter Manz, and we work passionately to constantly create new high-tech solutions for our customers. At the same time, sustainability and acting in a responsible manner are top priorities for us to secure the long-term existence of our company.

As part of our social responsibility as a company, we launched the project “Giving the Gift of a Future – Metalworking Shop in Ethiopia”, which provides vocational training to young Ethiopians.


With our mission “Pointing the way with our ideas for the future” we pursue the goal of shaping and making advancements to key technologies of our times such as displays and devices for global communication needs, sustainable power generation and storage as well as e-mobility through the continuous development of innovative and powerful production technologies.
