Our History

From start-up to economic factor in the Aachen technology region

Enthused by the idea of “cleaning with light”, Dipl.-Ing., Dipl.-Kfm. Edwin Büchter and Dr. Winfried Barkhausen founded the company Clean-Lasersysteme as managing partners.

Both partners had previously worked at the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology (ILT) in Aachen and thus already had extensive experience in the field of laser technology before the company was founded.
