Dewesoft growing and expanding
Founded in 2000 as a startup and now matured into a fully-fledged tech firm, the Trbovlje-based Dewesoft now plans to enter the next stage of its development.
"To upgrade existing products to the level of solutions for customers. To make a leap from selling products and systems to selling solutions," director Andrej Orožen told the STA about the company's plans.
With a workforce of 100 and subsidiaries in Austria, Germany, the US, Russia, Singapore and Brazil, Dewesoft plans to expand to France, Ukraine, South Korea, China and Japan to build what Orožen said would be a "global Dewesoft".
Aside from growing its business, the company has also started to invest in the local community, being headquartered in an old industrial town that has one of the highest unemployment rates in the country.
Dewesoft has recently bought a 1,800 m2 building in Trbovlje that it is already turning into a startup accelerator called Katapult, into which it plans to invest half a million euros.
The main purpose of the accelerator is to create jobs in the region by developing business ideas, training experts and connect businesses with financiers. Dewesoft itself does not plan on investing in equity.
Dewesoft specialises in measurement solutions for business customers in the automotive, energy, aerospace and civil engineering industries.
