»Our story begins with a long-standing family tradition.«
The love of products and manufacturing…
…runs in Simon’s family. His great-grandfather and grandfather already built manufacturing businesses and helped customers realize innovative ideas. After finishing his studies Simon decided to help out in his grandfather’s steel foundry and “reinvent it for the future”. In the beginning he did not understand that hard work, excellent quality and expertise did not necessarily lead to success. Simon visited many manufacturing companies to figure out how to help the businesses. Most of them were struggling with similar problems. Processes such as handling customer requests and requesting for quotes handled manually, cost the business a lot of time and money. Simon set out to change this. With his fellow classmate Daniel Garcia, he developed a vision that led to the launch of KREATIZE®.
TODAY. KREATIZE® helps manufacturing companies with smart purchasing solutions. We believe in the future of the manufacturing industry in Germany and Europe, and want to help businesses in this market achieve more success and agility. KREATIZE® digitalizes the way custom parts are ordered and manufactured. Companies receive a complete offer for their request within 120 minutes. With our smart solutions we are proud supporters of the digital and agile world of manufacturing, and plan to support as many businesses as possible.
How would you describe your experience working at KREATIZE? My experience at KREATIZE was awesome. I learned so many things at work, but also on a personal level. KREATIZE makes people more ambitious and curious, especially if people want to do the best at their work. Thanks to the wonderful team!
What makes the team of KREATIZE special? Here I can only repeat and lay emphasis on the team’s really unique composition. With team members originating from four different continents and diverse countries, all of which are highly motivated and qualified, it is a very special team to be part of. The team is as you would imagine it to be in a globalized and digitalized world — profoundly international and multicultural.
PRO FIT Program of the Investitionsbank Berlin & EFRE
In 2017 we submitted an application for a subsidy to the Pro FIT program of the Investitionsbank Berlin (IBB). Pro FIT is a highly competitive program, which aims at advancing research, development and innovation in Berlin. KREATIZE is now supported by the Pro FIT Program with the goal of researching and developing a CAD agnostic format for the representation of manufacturing data. This will enable faster pricing and the matching of projects to machines and materials. Our team is excited and looks forward to delving deeper into this fundamental topic. This project is also co-financed by the European Fund for Regional Development (EFRE).
