IC House celebrates its 40th anniversary

28.03.2024 - IC-Haus was founded 40 years ago as a manufacturer of ICs and microsystems. Today, the company generates a turnover of 100 million euros with 350 employees.

Dr. Heiner Flocke and Manfred Herz founded IC-Haus GmbH in 1984 in Bodenheim near Mainz as a manufacturer of ICs and microsystems. In the 40 years of its history, the company has developed into an internationally renowned player in the semiconductor industry with over 350 employees and a turnover of over 100 million euros.

Even in the early years, the company attached great importance to the greatest possible vertical integration. Founder Heiner Flocke explains: "With the exception of pure wafer production, we combine all development and production expertise for our own standard ICs and microsystems as well as solutions based on Asics, including wafer processing, assembly and testing. This enables us to deliver chip-based solutions that are individually tailored to the applications and needs of our customers. These are unique miniaturized key components that offer a high degree of integration and are particularly economical and efficient."

In the years that followed, IC-Haus developed into a globally active company that offers microsystems for applications in industrial, robotics, laser and medical technology as well as automotive applications, even in medium quantities.

Continuous site expansions as a sign of success

At the headquarters in Bodenheim, the progressive growth of IC-Haus was reflected in the ongoing construction activity:

  • The year 1993 marked the first milestone when IC-Haus left the rented premises of the founding phase and started production in its own company building.
  • In 1997, the company expanded its production and R&D space.
  • In 2006, the manufacturer set up a clean room for chip processing and assembly.
  • In 2012, another milestone followed on the continuously expanded company premises with construction phase 4 for IC production, testing, logistics and training.
  • In 2021, 350 people were employed in Bodenheim, after the 5th construction phase for the production expansion was successfully put into operation in 2019.

Generation change already prepared

Dr. Alexander Flocke was appointed as a further Managing Director at the turn of 2022/23. He has been working in chip development since 2008, then in applications and sales, and has gotten to know the company from several perspectives.
