Investments in the future

Since 2015, solvimus is on a steady growth course. The need of regular investments is self-explaining. Mainly, we want to invest in our greatest value, the people, who work with and for us. However, this requires conventional fixed assets – material as well as immaterial – to provide the necessary tools. We are also happy to take advantage of possibilities for grants that you can find below. 

A new domicile for solvimus GmbH 

2016

After almost 10 years, it was time for us to leave the “Technologie- und Gründerzentrum Ilmenau”. 

Thanks to the reception of our customers we reached our growth limit at our old location. In our new premises we are now prepared for the requirements of the next years. 

On the planning, we focused on the enlargement of the factory areas, energy efficiency, workplace ergonomy, increase of ESD-compliant workplaces in the production area as well as the digitalisation of internal business processes. 

New tools 

2017 

New software tools, which have regard to the company growth and the increasing digitalisation, become necessary. The increase in efficiency of operational processes caused by increasing digitalisation especially requires investments in immaterial economic goods, e. g. a DMS/Workflow system or also in a modern ERP system. 

Update: 25 September 2018 

The digitalisation proceeds increasingly faster with the result that we will rely more on cloud solution and SaaS, especially in the field of conventional ERP systems. For this purpose, we will start soon a new project in the programme “Digitalbonus Thüringen”.

Recruiting and human resources management

2018

We are investing not only in new working materials and tools to support our business growth, but also in our staff, as well as recruiting new employees and strategic personnel consulting. An external consultant supports us in this process.

These actions were supported by the European Social Fund and state funds of the Free State of Thuringia.
