The Wammes & Partner GmbH was founded in 1993 as a "Technologie-Schmiede". This was followed by the subsidiaries i-sft and Global Lightz that since then focused on the areas of development and production of customized flat panel displays, respectively, light generation and distribution. The two companies have entered into several strategic partnerships with companies such as IBM, Osram, Philips or Siemens. The latter gave off all shares of i-sft to Wammes & Partner GmbH in 2003.
2015 the Electronic Displays Center was founded in Gundersheimwith with an own research department, laboratories as well as an optical measuring park. The aim is to bundle the expertise in applied physics and thus to integrate new companies to jointly investigate and develop in display and lighting technology.
