attenio starts the digital transformation in industrial assembly with 1.1 mio € seed funding.

February 11, 2020

The product family Tio of the attenio GmbH is a digital cooperation platform between the planning and the assembly of industrial companies. Usually, companies print drawings and instruction on how to assemble a product and provide them on the shopfloor. This is done, though the planning and the design of the products are done in state of the art software on computers. Three typical problems are the consequences: the loss of productivity on the shop floor, assembly errors and the challenge to transfer Know-How from senior workers. Especially for large and complex products, e. g. packaging machines or a bottling plant, are enourmous potentials. The platform of the startup offers industry an opportunity to digitalize the processes on the shopfloor and in the service of their products. The employees in future will no longer need full folder of print-outs and protocols, but can easily get all information from a tablet or smartglasses.

Attenio GmbH addresses an attractive target group with a very mature and already saleable product. With the first customers, valuable experience and valid feedback could be gathered, which enables attenio to position itself strongly. We as HTGF are looking forward to the cooperation.
