Klaus Berka began his career in 1975 at Carl Zeiss Jena as an application chemist for analytical measuring instruments. In 1990, he founded the company Analytik Jena and built it from “nothing” into a global enterprise with more than 1,100 employees and 130 million euros in sales. The company specialises in the development, production and sale of analytical and bioanalytical measuring instruments for a wide variety of applications in physico-chemical laboratories. The majority share in the company was taken over in 2013 by the Swiss technology company Endress and Hauser, and after a successful squeeze out, today 100% of the company belongs to the family business.
As the founder, Klaus Berka received several awards for his entrepreneurial achievements, including the Thuringian Ernst Abbe Innovation Award for his life’s work. Klaus Berka is a member of several scientific committees and advisory councils, such as the Fraunhofer Gesellschaft IZI Leipzig, the Leibnitz Gemeinschaft IPHT Jena or the Max Planck Institute Jena.
Klaus Berka has been a member of the Supervisory Board of Aifotec since 2016. Quote: “The Aifotec company is operating in an exciting and dynamically growing market – a market in which Aifotec has established itself among its customers as a high-performance, reliable supplier and partner.”
