On January 06, 1992, POG Präzisionsoptik Gera GmbH started its business. The company was founded in times of upheaval when the former Zeiss factory in Gera closed its doors. The three founders, Ray George, Aleksander Wlodarski and Manfred Schubach took the plunge into independence. Always driven by the passion for optics, enthusiasm and innovative spirit.
Our success story
With success – as can be seen today, 30 years later. The initial difficulties have long been forgotten and we can proudly look back on a great development. In the last business year, we achieved sales of €20 million for the first time. At the same time, €20 million has already been invested in the new site in Löbichau to drive our growth forward. And this is also noticeable in the area of Human Resources: Started with 45 employees in 1992, there is now a nearly 200-person team behind POG. Among them still some employees of the first hour.
Success should be celebrated!
So much success should be celebrated. And so there was a big company celebration on Tuesday, 14.06.2022. Together with numerous customers, suppliers and business partners we celebrated our 30th anniversary. With a total of 60 guests, we spent the afternoon together with lively conversations and a small program at our site in Löbichau.
Thank you to all customers, suppliers and business partners who are part of our story!
