The Companies

Due to our move from Germany to Switzerland in 02/2022, there are currently two RP Photonics companies:

RP Photonics AG (Switzerland)

This is the active company.

The address: RP Photonics AG, Bannhaldenstr. 38, CH-8500 Frauenfeld (see also: contact information).

Founder and executive: Dr. Rüdiger Paschotta

Company ID: CHE-141.173.265

RP Photonics Consulting GmbH (Germany)

Originally (in 2004), RP Photonics was founded in Zürich, Switzerland. In 2010, RP Photonics moved to Bad Dürrheim, Germany (Waldstr. 17, 78073 Bad Dürrheim), and kept the original name. Since February 2022, RP Photonics is back in Switzerland. It is now an AG (stock corporation), and “consulting” has been removed from the company name, since it is no longer the central business area.

In case you need the data of the (no longer active) German company (which will be liquidated in 2024): trade register number: HRB 706010; register court: Amtsgericht Freiburg i. Br., VAT number: DE274664441.
