We wish you, your colleagues and family good health. Together we will get through this challenging period.

With best regards,

We are ISO9001:2015 certified. Since 2014, we have established our own quality assurance system at our Emden site, which checks the optics before shipping.

Our goal at Artifex is to build a long-term relationship with our customers. A regular exchange with our customers enables us to plan new projects at an early stage and to store existing projects in such a way that the optics can be called up by the customer within a few days. We are happy to work with framework agreements to achieve this. In this way costs can be reduced and delivery times shortened.

We also maintain long-term relationships with our manufacturers, which enable us to offer special conditions. The direct exchange enables us to combine our know-how and to optimise processes together.
