5microns is a very professional, solid, down-to-earth and yet young and dynamic company with a high service orientation. Everything is always straightforward, very reliable, very fast – that’s how I got to know the 5microns team.

In my view 5microns has the huge advantage to be strongly supported by the think tank of Ilmenau University of Technology. Additionally, the start-up mentality is present till today. Due to the access to clean room area, the spirit of innovation is still alive. If I am looking for a state-of-the-art microsystems solution, 5microns GmbH is a first choice for me.

“We had a great experience with 5microns. Their “can do” approach gets the job done, essential when developing a new process flow. They are professional, flexible, and transparent, this generated the needed results in a short lead time. I look forward to continue working with 5microns in the future.”
