In 1999, Bernd Hillbrands and Axel Giertz laid the groundwork in their East Frisian home Leer, focusing on identifying customer needs early on, creating the industry’s best software as innovative pioneers. The initial startup team was small-scale with five people: the two bosses, one experienced employee and two trainees.
The plan was to make the customers’ transition to a more digitised production process simple and economically feasible.
In order to achieve this the data of system suppliers was integrated into the software right from the start. Today, this flexibility is one of the reasons for users to choose Logikal. Instead of having to buy the software, users were offered to rent it. An approach that is taken for granted today.
In 2003, we created the link between the office and the shop floor for the first time:
Even since then, Logikal is used to control CNC machines directly, compatible with almost all common machines on the market today.
