The company was founded in 1996 by Dr. Thomas Schütte, who from the very beginning placed special emphasis on the consistent use of spectroscopic measurement technology in a turnkey system suitable for industrial use. The head office is located in Mering, Germany.

Groundbreaking plasma monitor systems with innovative in-vacuum sensors and a comprehensive yet easy-to-use software interface were created, providing users with a variety of novel real-time measurement techniques in plasma technology.

The PLASUS distribution network is continuously growing with numerous local distributors in the European countries, the long-standing and strong Asian support center in Taiwan and local representatives in Japan, China and Korea. The American market will soon be served by a North American partner.
