Solarius Company History

Solarius Developent Inc. was established in the year 2000 in San Jose in the heart of California’s Silicon Valley. Providing specialized optical metrology equipment to support essential quality requirements of surrounding technology corporations, Solarius scaled success together with the breathtaking development of the silicon valley technologies and companies throughout the years from the early 2000s until today.

As the majority of consumer electronics and semiconductor components - than as now - is produced in the Asian regions, support and service requirements of mass production optical metrology systems lead to founding Solarius Asia Ltd. Hong Kong in 2013 and Solarius Trading Shanghai Ltd. in 2015. Following the emerging markets and the customer manufacturing sites, in 2016 Solarius India Ltd. was established.

In 2017 Solarius GmbH Europe was founded in Munich, Germany, immediately followed by the Solarius Tech Center in Essen to contribute Solarius metrology expertise to the strong and technology driven markets in Europe.
