Dalgety Bay-based PowerPhotonic, world leaders in the digitally driven design and manufacture of high-performance optics, has joined the Fife Tech Consortium.

Nils Krichel, Digital Strategy Leader at PowerPhotonic, commented:

“We were excited to learn that the Fife Tech Consortium has widened its scope from its FinTech roots. By joining the consortium, we hope to bring another valuable perspective to the table, to increase our awareness of digital opportunities and resources in Fife and beyond and, most importantly, to learn from its other members’ digital transformation journeys.”

As a digitally driven business, PowerPhotonic can also learn from other members of the Fife Tech Consortium. Nils added:

“Digital technologies and an Industry 4.0 approach are central to every stage of our design, production and test processes. Engaging with these opportunities means critically asking how they affect existing work flows, and how our employees interact with them - finding the approach that is right for us, rather than embracing change for the sake of it, is crucial in making digital transformation a success. Successfully adapting to the current situation and its opportunities and challenges has driven this point home for us.”
