novotek GmbH was founded in August 1973. The focal point of business was the development and manufacture of custom-made laser-optical devices for laboratories and universities. As of 1976, the high vacuum sector increasingly became the object of our business activities and ultimately replaced the laser sector.
Business activity concentrated initially on the development and construction of high-vacuum products, whereby the production of the individual components was initially transferred to manufacturing shops and external suppliers. A long-standing partnership with almost all suppliers forms the basis of the present-day well-established collaboration. Following a decision to produce not only the standard components but also cost-effectively manufacture special components to customer specifications, it became necessary set up a company-owned production facilities.
The company's approach to growth has always been conservative: Our principles were, and continue to be, excellent relations with our business partners and fair, sound working principles. Furthermore, we set high standards for ourselves with regard to product quality, competitive prices and short delivery times. In almost all cases, our standard products can be called directly from stock. A further example is the close, and often personal contact to our customers with the aim of taking care of customer problems and finding solutions. An excellent working atmosphere among the workforce and the above-mentioned trusting business relations with our customers and suppliers are the result of our continuous turnover growth.
The development of novotek from a supplier of universities and institutes to a supplier of industry was an important step towards sustained growth. The product range now covers all components in the KF, ISO-K and CF range. The continuous further development of all valves is also one of our great strengths.
A further strong point of novotek is the preparation of special parts according to customer specifications, diagrams, drawings or CAD data. For years now, these special parts have been gaining importance and expanding their market presence.
Since 2011, we have also been manufacturing cubic and cylindrical vacuum chambers with different dimensions according to customer drawings. Our vast experience in this area has proved to be beneficial to our customers.
The excellent customer relations, wide product range, high-quality products at competitive prices and understanding of our customers' technical problems provide us with a solid basis for the future success of our company.
