Crystal Laser Systems GmbH takes over Canlas Laser Processing GmbH

Silver Investment Partners strengthens CryLaS with acquisition

  • Expansion of the product and service range
  • Strengthening of the development department in the field of pulsed lasers
  • Secure future with broader market access for Canlas

Königstein/Berlin, 15. September 2022 – Crystal Laser Systems GmbH (CryLaS) acquires Canlas Laser Processing GmbH (Canlas) with the support of its majority shareholder Silver Investment Partners (SIP). Both companies are based in the southeast of Berlin. The founder and managing director of Canlas is leaving the company as part of a succession plan. The management of Canlas takes over the management of CryLaS. The parties have agreed not to disclose the purchase price.

CryLaS is a leading supplier of deep-UV lasers used primarily in the semiconductor, biotechnology and analytical industries. The acquisition expands CryLaS’ manufacturing capacity and product range. It will also strengthen the company’s new product development in the field of pulsed systems. At Canlas, the acquisition secures succession and provides the team with job security as well as access to a broader market and range of tasks.

Two leading laser manufacturers for high-tech applications

Canlas has been designing and manufacturing custom lasers for its customers for more than 20 years and is now a leading specialist in the design and manufacture of solid-state lasers and laser systems that emit pulsed light. Pulsed lasers are also one of two technology fields of CryLaS (additionally: CW lasers or “continuous wave lasers”). However, the areas of application differ, so the two companies complement each other well.

CryLaS was founded in 2004 and is based in Berlin. The company manufactures continuous wave deep UV lasers for various high-tech industries, including in particular the semiconductor, biotechnology and analytical industries. CryLaS products include pulsed lasers and CW lasers, which are suitable for high-tech applications with their short wavelength, precise beam parameters and long lifetime. Over the years, CryLaS has developed several market niches and is now one of the leading suppliers in the field of laser systems for wafer inspection.
