Dresden, 1 March 2017

The discussion agenda included topics such as opportunities and risks in connection with the so-called “energy transition” and the support given to research and development in the Free State of Saxony. The minister was especially interested to hear how HIGHVOLT had been able to defend its position as a world leader, despite the intense international competition.

“Our recipe for success is based on three pillars,” says HIGHVOLT managing director Ralf Bergmann, “namely strong commitment to the needs of every individual customer, high self-imposed quality standards and the excellent technical knowledge of our workforce.”

To be able to develop a technically and economically ideal solution for every customer application, HIGHVOLT attaches prime importance to innovation, as co-managing director Bernhard Nick explains: “All products are subject to a continuous improvement process, for which we cooperate very closely with both our customers and corresponding experts from universities and colleges.”

Minister Ulbig, himself a trained electronics technician, was clearly impressed: “I learned with interest that HIGHVOLT Prüftechnik Dresden received the accolade of ‘Top Innovator 2016’ last year. The company is one of the numerous internationally successful SMEs which form the backbone of our regional economy.” During a tour of the factory, he was able to gain a more detailed insight into the benefits and special technical features of the high voltage test systems developed by HIGHVOLT.
