Reading time ( words)

With a turnover of 40 million Euros, GÖPEL electronic from Jena, Germany, was able to achieve a sales record in the past fiscal year 2019. The strong previous year was exceeded by two percentage points, and the number of employees was also increased. Thus the company's growth continues.

The "Automotive Test Solutions" division made a significant contribution to this success. This made the automotive industry the most important sales market in 2019 as well. Increasing electrification of drives and complex communication and control systems in the vehicle led to strong demand for test solutions from automobile manufacturers and suppliers. The "Inspection Solutions" division for optical quality assurance of electrical assemblies achieved the highest growth in the company over the course of the year. The systems are used by electronics manufacturers to detect serial defects in the process fully automatically to avoid technical malfunctions. The "Embedded JTAG Solutions" business unit was also able to further penetrate the market for test and programming technologies for highly complex electrical assemblies, and sums up a successful year 2019.
