Spin-off companies

Many people have started as students in the laboratories, continued in research and development projects, which have presented outstanding scientific results and eventually grown into small companies. At a more mature state, the companies have moved to their own, new, production facilities – specially designed for their processes – and giving room in our laboratories for the next generation of growing research and development activities. Here we present a brief list of spin-off companies from the Electrum Laboratory.
