WITec Jubilee Celebrates 25 Years of Innovation

Jul 07 2022

Raman microscopy specialists honoured with a significant historical artwork

WITec GmbH marked a quarter century since its founding with a party on Friday 1 July 2022. The Ulm, Germany-based company hosted old friends and new colleagues for an evening of reflection, fellowship and fun.

The event, ‘WITec Jubilee - 25 Years in Focus’, began with founders Joachim Koenen and Olaf Hollricher recounting the origin of the firm and its progression from a start-up to a globally recognised leader in Raman microscopy.


该公司从1997年从乌尔姆大学分离出来,到2022年实现了有机增长,并取得了广泛的创新记录。扩建大楼将使目前总部的容量增加一倍,这将使该公司能够满足对其产品的强劲需求。晚会上举行了新工厂的正式交接仪式,乌尔姆工商会会长Jan Stefan Roell博士为公司的成就颁发了证书。

The evening’s keynote address was given by Professor Dr Wolfgang Kiefer, a renowned figure who has shaped Raman spectroscopy in Europe as no other over the past fifty years. He is also an enthusiastic promoter of the legacy of C.V. Raman, who won the 1930 Nobel Prize for describing the effect that bears his name. In a particularly emotional moment, Professor Dr Kiefer presented WITec’s founders with a watercolour portrait of Sir Raman painted from life by Professor Dr Josef Behringer during Raman’s only visit to Germany in 1956.
