German term or phrase: Anwendungstechnikum
Für höchste Qualität hinsichtlich Innovation und Stabilität garantiert unser Anwendungstechnikum.

From a pamphlet about a company that produces food coloring.

Is it correct to assume this means "technical staff?" Or might it be "usage instructions?" I am not finding any helpful references. Thanks for your help!

Application Technology Centre
Explanation:
Please note the low level of confidence, Kathy. Although the translation below is not very good, I think it's safe to assume that in this instance it really is a center. A Technikum is a technical school.

Auf besonderes Interesse stieß dabei das nach der Flutkatastrophe 2002 neu strukturierte und mit neuester Maschinentechnik ausgerüstete Stammwerk Schwertberg. Hier wurde mit der Veranstaltung auch das neu gestaltete, flächenmäßig mehr als verdoppelte Versuchs- und Anwendungstechnikum offiziell in Betrieb genommen.

A particular attraction was the parent factory at Schwertberg which has been completely restructured and equipped with the very latest in machine technology following the flood disaster in August 2002. The symposium also marked the official opening of the newly designed Experimental and Application Technology Centre which now has more than double the floor space at its disposal.

Integraler Bestandteil dieses Erweiterungsbaues am Standort ist auch ein neues Anwendungstechnikum. Hier können Entwicklungsingenieure und Servicetechniker Tests und Probeläufe durchführen. Aufgrund von Machbarkeitsanalysen und konkreten Aussagen zur Erkennungsgenauigkeit lässt sich für den jeweiligen Anwendungsfall eine optimale Lösung zum Nutzen der Kunden bestimmen.

Thanks so much! I used "technology center." I think this covers many possibilites. The company didn't seem large enough to have a pilot plant somewhere, and the main point was that they have staff available to help with technical questions. Thanks to all who commented as well -- very helpful!

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  Ken Cox: Could be; I've also recently encountered 'Technikum' in a context where it apparently meant 'engineering facilities' (labs, equipment, employees...), which fits the ref for your second note. Maybe it's a new fashion word.
