About us


For each of the projects we work on, customized developments are required. An innovative mindset therefore is the core of our organization.


With the wide range of industries and activities that we serve, flexibility in approaching and managing a project are of key importance.

Our work

Around the world, we come up with unique solutions to unsolvable problems in situations ranging from luxury villas and comfortable yachts to naval vessels, the offshore sector and industrial plants.

From a lifting system for a helipad and a roofing system with a moving faҫade for a swimming pool to launching systems for tenderboats on superyachts and for mission boats on naval ships, we create and realize a solution to each technical challenge.
