3TEC – Specialists in Management Execution Systems
Three innovators, two offices, one vision. When Dipl. Ing. Bernd Beckmann, Dipl. Ing. Markus Jass and Dipl. Betriebswirt Arno Sturm decided in 1997 to found the 3TEC engineering firm in Vlotho, Germany, they had but one goal: to further develop the field of Management Execution Systems (MES) using the latest software technology, and thus optimize the automation processes used in industrial production. With the company based in the heartland of European furniture production, management execution systems for the kitchen and office furniture industry were a natural point of focus right from the very beginning.
3TEC – An Export Hit
Twenty years on, the company is still based in Vlotho, but has now also become one of the driving forces of innovation in its field, developing constantly to become a global market leader in management execution systems. Across more than 1,600 m² of office space, around 70 staff work to convert furniture factories all over the world to the batch-size-1 system – and 3TEC automation professionals can now be found in a dozen European countries as well as the USA, Russia, Brazil and Australia.
