Company info

We are a group of high-tech companies in the north of the Netherlands that have joined forces to work on solutions for future challenges at the cutting edge of technology.

We call this the Big 5 of high-tech: metal 3D printing, remote sensoring and big data, robotics, visual intelligence and renewable propulsion. We do this by using the latest technology and, if necessary, developing it in-house. Our R&D departments work together in a unique way and, instead of competing with each other, support and reinforce each other. Every year, we create more than 50 innovative products worldwide. These products contribute to society by saving people’s lives, making complex systems easy to operate, providing access to data that improve food quality, and tailoring them to individual consumer needs. Our collaboration is called Innovatiecluster Drachten and is centrally located in the smart factory region of Northwest Europe.
