Technology Center.

Where Ideas Become Reality.

We think about the future here. We set the future here. And we live up to the future here. That is why the technology center is also an important place for our company. After all, we at PI now employ over 510 people at headquarters in Karlsruhe alone and have invested around 13 million euros in our buildings as a commitment to the location, to progress, research, and technology. In the modern building complex of the technology center - in all offices, application laboratories, corridors, visitor areas with technical exhibits, measuring and clean rooms for vacuum, cryogenic chambers up to the bistro – the research and innovation spirit that will shape our future can be experienced and felt. The large auditorium with more than 200 seats forms the heart of the technology center and is also used for training and events.

It's Not a Coincidence that PI Is in Karlsruhe.

Because, despite what the name of the city may suggest, the city is in fact, a lively, internationally recognized technology location in Germany. It's no wonder then that we are at home in the IT Mecca of the South and use the technologically good climate and innovative spirit of Karlsruhe as a tailwind for our driving force.


This innovative spirit is also reflected for example, in the large number of our patents that have achieved international acclaim. We would not have achieved this without the best, most committed employees: People who give their best every day in teams to push both themselves and our vision forward.


The fantastic team spirit manifests itself where it is most important: In the daily work routine in the company. In offices, corridors, the bistro, showroom, laboratories, canteen, fitness area or conference rooms – at every single desk spread across all departments. And of course, this also includes our parties, open days, where everyone gets involved.


"Large family" is a great term ‒ this is particularly noticeable when we all get together. It's something special that you cannot buy or just implement.
We're proud of that.

Trailblazing with a mountain bike. Enjoy culture at the highest level in the fan-shaped city. A short trip to France or an excursion to Switzerland. Take a hike with friends on the gourmet trails and panoramic paths. Enjoy great regional cuisine and fine wines.

Live and work where others – guests from all over the world - enthusiastically spend their holidays and appreciate the diversity of the region. This is also PI in Karlsruhe. Because when it comes to geography, climate, hours of sunshine, urban life, art & culture, everything is just right here – an all-round successful, multi-faceted total package, embedded in the beautiful nature of the Northern Black Forest.

These are just perfect conditions for a successful work-life balance!
