Lab14 provides advanced manufacturing solutions. We are a group of successful high-tech companies with complementary products and services for a wide range of applications that require demanding solutions for nano- and microfabrication and surface analysis.

Lab14 supports growth of each of its individual companies and at the same time fosters synergies between the companies to generate a competitive and technological advantage over other players in the field.

Lab14, a subsidiary of the RSBG SE, is wholly owned by the RAG foundation. The RAG foundation finances the perpetual obligations that the German hard coal mining industry has left behind and promotes projects in the areas of education, science and culture.
