INNOTECH Holztechnologien GmbH was founded in 1990 by Manfred and Thomas Stautmeister.
Since our founding we have been focused on the needs of SMEs. Initially through automation solutions and 3D-Visualisationtechnology and later on through a more project and consulting focused business concentrated on increasing our clients’ efficiency.
We work on all of our projects with dedication and passion. Our aim is to find the best possible solution for every problem. In order to do that we like to look at the bigger picture and develop interdisciplinary solutions. We will never lose sight of our clients’ needs and their individual milestones.
The technologies developed in our early years are the foundation for our current software products and consulting services. From the beginning onwards our name has stood for innovative solutions.
