Down-to-earth

Between an SME and a major corporation

With its international focus and broad product portfolio, Carl Zeiss can offer you flexibility, stability, and all the development opportunities of a large company. Yet you will also enjoy a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and the kind of scope for creativity that you would normally only find in a smaller company.

High-tech products that push the boundaries of what is feasible

Carl Zeiss makes more than half of its turnover from products that are no more than three years old. But innovation at Carl Zeiss is not just about developing new and improved products – it is also about our researchers and developers constantly pushing the limits of what is physically conceivable.

Stable foundations

The Carl-Zeiss-Stiftung (Carl Zeiss Foundation) is the sole shareholder of Carl Zeiss AG and provides the company with the security of a stable long-term ownership structure.
The statute of the Stiftung prohibits the sale of shares, which means that the management can focus all their attention on the sustainable and strategic development of the company.
