The history of HTI bio-X is largely shaped by the developments made by HTI Entwicklungs GmbH (now HTI engineering GmbH) and by the time the founding members spent at MWG Biotech. HTI bio-X was founded with the aim of positioning the company as an engineering partner and provider of developmental services to biotechnological and medical laboratories. This initial focus is represented by the “bio-X”. During their growth, many of these laboratories are faced with the task of automating their processes. However, industrial solutions for automation are usually too inflexible, too large, and too expensive. HTI has positioned itself as a provider of customized solutions.In addition to laboratory automation, HTI engineering again focuses increasingly on general automation and engineering services.HTI’s customers come from the most diverse areas – from small companies e.g. biotechnology laboratories to manufacturing companies and global players.
