Furthermore, the MES specialist based in Gliwice will continue to play a key role in global project implementation. “For many years, we have been relying on the technological expertise of the SOLDIS team when it comes to customer- and country-specific ZEISS GUARDUS software adjustments. We will continue to actively drive this collaboration in the interests of global expansion. Ultimately, the dynamism of globalization comes with a wide range of cross-country MES ambitions in discrete manufacturing,” says Simone Cronjäger, Head of Carl Zeiss MES Solutions GmbH (previously known as GUARDUS Solutions AG) in Ulm.

“We are delighted to be a new ZEISS business solutions partner and thus in a position to further intensify our existing partnership in terms of customer consultation and care, as well as software development.
