for our systems

For us, customer proximity is crucial in order to provide fast and simple service and upgrades. That is why VON ARDENNE is growing worldwide.

In addition to its headquarters in Dresden, VON ARDENNE has Group units in China, India, Japan, Malaysia, the USA and Vietnam. In addition to their duties in regional service, sales and purchasing, they are actively involved in the VON ARDENNE Group's business development and global 24/7 service program.



VON ARDENNE GmbH emerged in 1991 from the Manfred von Ardenne Research Institute. The most important starting capital for the young company also came from the institute: 67 experienced employees and 35 years of know-how in vacuum technology and mechanical engineering.

The breakthrough came in 1994/95 with a major order for an inline glass coating system. In 1996, the good order situation made it necessary to build another plant on a 3,200 m2 site in Dresden-Wei├čig, today's headquarters of the VON ARDENNE Group.

The successful development of the company was based on the exploitation of innovations, such as the deposition of multilayers with extraordinary optical, electrical, thermal and mechanical properties as well as specific structures on any substrate. In addition, the production of electron beam guns with up to 1,200 kW beam power for the extraction of highly reactive or high-melting metals as well as thermal evaporation became more and more important internationally.

VON ARDENNE Vacuum Equipment (Shanghai) Co., Ltd.

VON ARDENNE's entry into the Chinese market for glass coating systems took place in 2002. Encouraged by our growing success, the decision was quickly made to have our own representation and Chinese contact persons on site for our customers and to continue to position ourselves successfully in the market.

In 2006, our first group unit emerged from the agency: VON ARDENNE Vacuum Equipment Co., Ltd., Shanghai (VAVE), located in Songjiang Industrial Park. The qualified team of sales representatives, engineers, service and installation specialists is the direct contact with our Chinese customers for all questions regarding systems, upgrades and spare parts deliveries. VAVE employees now look after dozens of VON ARDENNE coating systems installed at customers' sites for architectural glass and metal strips as well as for the photovoltaic industry.

VON ARDENNE Vacuum Equipment ensures the short-term supply of spare parts to our customers through its purchasing department. With their own production and expertise for the Chinese market, VAVE colleagues are actively involved in the strategic business development of the VON ARDENNE Group.
