Dear Customers and Suppliers!
Dansk Opto Teknik A/S shuts down at the end of this year!
We have 30 year anniversary, and I have become an older gentleman, at least according to my grandchildren.
Before I am turning into a "Grumpy Old Man", it is probably time to reflect on my age, and nicely thank everybody who has helped me and the company to survive for such a long time.
The 31-12-2016 is the irrevocably end for all production and trade here from Christian X's Allé 9 in Lyngby, Denmark. Maybe even before - if I run out of components and materials.
I have not regretted a second of the 30 years. It has been mostly interesting and fun, thanks to many good customers and suppliers. Of course there have been nasty problems and challenges; otherwise it would have been too boring. Anyway - there were never enough hours in the day for all the things I wanted to achieve.
Does it stop completely?
Yes - and yet no.
I have not been able to find someone who wanted to take over the company and all the products. But do not despair!
Speed Tech A/S, a company which develops and produces advanced gate controllers and automation systems, will continue part of the program. You will still be able to get transmitters and receivers. And you will still be able to get photoelectric amplifiers. Some products will be discontinued, mostly because they passed the expiration date a long time ago. Fortunately, there are other suppliers with replacements, none mentioned, none forgotten.
So it'll work out altogether. Life goes on and none of us are quite as indispensable as we like to think. This also applies to companies.
Once again – thanks to you all. If you have questions or comments – maybe even a final order, please feel free to contact me - but remember - before 31/12.
