What does CDA mean?

The long form of CDA is Compact Datenträger Albrechts.

Originally, we produced CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays at our ImPressing Solutions unit. We had been able to develop our know-how of optical memories further so that we could open up other business areas. The latter include Flash Memory Solutions, here we flash NAND storage media for renowned automotive manufacturers, Microfuntional Solutions – where we make lenses for entertainment electronics and many more, and our latest business area, 3D printing, which was introduced in 2018.
