From cinema projection machines to high-tech surgical microscopes - this characterizes the 75-year history of the company. It is precisely these challenges that have made Kaps Optik a renowned high-tech supplier in its industries. Understanding change and shaping it into innovative products that provide users with real benefits: this has been a precept of the Hessian family-owned company from Asslar since 1946.
Customers and partners worldwide appreciate the attention to detail that the company brings to all its projects around the globe. The experience gained from 75 years in the market helps in finding and implementing a suitable solution for every customer.
75 years of Kaps Optik also stands for 75 years made in Germany. It is not only out of tradition that Kaps Optik feels connected to its home country and its region. Part of the company's commitment to Germany as a location for business is also the aspiration for absolute quality.
The site in Asslar has always been the production facility for high-tech optical products from Central Hesse. Many of the employees come from families, some of whom have been loyal to the company for several generations.
Through this location philosophy, the company not only sustainably secures economic performance and jobs for the region, but also confirms its imperative claim to the quality of its products.
"Running a family business with a 75-year tradition is, of course, always a challenge, especially in these demanding times. However, it has always been part of the family tradition to turn challenges into promising perspectives."
Holger Kaps, Managing Director
