With Günther and Stephan Irlbacher the fourth generation joins the family business. Step by step additional processing and finishing processes for flat glass are introduced. New customers are added. The plants are enlarged, and highly qualified employees are hired.
The most important step towards becoming a system supplier is taken in 2008 with the in-house development IMPAtouch – electronics on glass. With the evaluation of the touch sensor signals directly on the cover or display glass, Irlbacher changes the world of industrial HMIs forever. Already the first products are technological challenges; a steep development curve begins.
