The cooperation was more or less a coincidence. Plant manager Hans-Jürgen Thöns came across Hansen while researching for an LED manufacturer and visited a customer event a short time later. It was only there that he realised: "They can do much, much more!" The decision to outsource was made.
Since then, Hansen has been supplying the complete lighting technology. Glasprinter prints the glass plates and uses them to finish the final product before it is shipped. In this way, it was possible to increase the number of pieces significantly.
"Everyone does what they do best," affirms Hans-Jürgen Thöns, "The cooperation is very economical for us, Hansen's quality is top. And even when we have new ideas or problems to solve, our contact persons are always obliging. It is also positive that Hansen's field service is there for us on site".
