Merger of companies of iFD Group

» Out of the beautifully united striving, only effective life arises.«, this is how the great German poet Friedrich Schiller put it once.

With the fusion of iFD GmbH (Chemnitz), DLS GmbH (Chemnitz) and iFD digiplant GmbH (Munich) we are uniting all competence centers of the iFD Group and bundling the entire value chain of our products and services into a single strong brand.
With this, we enable a

▪ uniform and continuous process certification according to ISO 9001:2015,
