Taufkirchen, Germany, 29 October 2019 – In his speech at the opening of the new company headquarters, HENSOLDT CEO Thomas Müller reaffirmed the company’s commitment to the Taufkirchen location and the Free State of Bavaria. While the new building is the administrative headquarters of the sensor solution provider, it is rather a place of innovation. Bavarian Minister President Dr. Markus Söder was particularly impressed by the 3D printed circuit board printing shown here, which is unique in Germany in this form. As technology leader, HENSOLDT develops 3D printed circuit boards that allow completely new circuits. In his speech, Dr. Söder praised HENSOLDT as a high-tech company with its headquarters in Taufkirchen and a good family in Bavaria. He added: “We have good soldiers in Germany. And they deserve the best.”
