CDA Über Uns Firmenprofil

About us


Since 1994 we have been producing optical storage media and are based in Suhl. CDA does not only stand for Compact Datenträger Albrechts but also for opportunities, character, discipline, dynamics, up-to-datedness and awareness

The initial production of CDs, DVDs and Blu-ray discs at our ImPressing Solutions unit has be developed further.

So, our Flash Memory Solutions unit has been active since 2005 in the field of flashing of NAND flash memories for navigation systems of renowned automotive manufacturers. Since a standstill actually means falling behind, we have constantly developed this further, and today we are well-equipped in the field of "embedded flash". It enables us to provide full service.



Our third business area is Microfunctional Solutions also dealing with the manufacture of complex microstructures since 2005. A case in point are micro-optics used in head-up displays, games consoles or smartphones. Besides entertainment electronics our customers mainly come from the automotive sector and industry.

Sustainability, responsible action and efficient use resources are of top priority for us.

In 2018 we established, for example, the line of 3D printing. It puts us in the position to make diverse prototypes, trays, spare parts, mounts and sample components in-house for internal purposes which saves both costs and time.

Especially in times where products become increasingly more complex, development times and product life cycles and JIT production shorter, efficient and resource-saving manufacturing techniques become more and more important.        


With an eye to the world.

By constantly opening up new business areas this company has developed from a CD pressing plant to an internationally operating technology company and globally acting partner on markets of the future, such as automotive, consumer electronics, automation and other life sciences.

We will continue looking outside the box, broaden our expertise and know-how to keep up with global changes.
