VON ARDENNE GmbH was founded in 1991 as a spin-off company of the former Dresden Manfred von Ardenne Research Institute. The new beginning involved 67 employees who brought with them the know-how from this famous research institute into a new chapter in the history of the company, laying the technological foundations for future development. Today, more than 620 employees make up the staff, which has increased almost tenfold. The values embodied by Manfred von Ardenne live on in them and define the profile of the company as before: scientific curiosity, the constant search for innovative technological solutions, quality awareness, effective action and reliability.
