About us

We are a young Hamburg-based company specializing in the development and distribution of scalable AR/MR solutions for industrial applications. The focus of our company, founded in 2020, is on the digital transformation of engineering and production processes. Our team combines over 15 years of industry experience.

How it began

In 2018, thyssenkrupp had the HoloLinc solution developed to digitize the sales process for stairlifts. The solution was developed in just 10 months and has been used by over 120 employees since its launch in October 2018.

Dennis Ahrens, in his role at Zühlke as service provider, was responsible for the delivery of the solution and developed HoloLinc with an international team in just 10 months. It is not only thyssenkrupp that faces the problem of planning measurements in the sales process, but many product manufacturers, especially in the SME sector. A reason to turn an individual solution into a measurement platform.

On a good path

In big steps towards success: In the meantime, our growing team has AR visualizations in its portfolio in addition to the solution for planning measurement. We have already been rewarded for this several times:

  • at the beginning of the year with the Wachstumsstark-Award, which honors entrepreneurial ability and economic success
  • in April with 2nd place in the Fast Mover Award in the field of logistics 
  • and in October with the KfW Award Gründen Hamburg, which honors innovative and successful startups.

And that's not all by a long shot - further milestones are on the horizon. Expectations are high!

The goals

The UN has formulated 17 goals to promote sustainable development, fairness, a life in dignity and respect for our planet.

Sustainability plays a key role in our thinking, from the founding idea to the present day. Our solutions help small and medium-sized enterprises to hold their own against industry giants in the long term in the wake of digitization, they save resources and free up skilled workers.

Although we support the entire initiative without reservation, there are 5 goals that are particularly close to our hearts in our daily work:

Quite simply, SPACIFIC.
