congatec Celebrates 10th Anniversary

congatec evolves from start-up to market leader for Computer-on-Modules in just a decade

SAN DIEGO--()--congatec, a leading technology company for embedded computer modules, single board computers and EDM services, celebrates its 10th anniversary today. Established on December 9th, 2004 by 13 former Jumptec employees, the company has grown steadily to its current team of 177 employees.

“The world market for embedded computer boards, modules and systems”

The history of congatec is a true success story. In just a decade, the company has established itself as the market leader for computer modules in EMEA. Worldwide, congatec ranks second in this market segment (see the recent study "The world market for embedded computer boards, modules and systems", edition 2014 by renowned market research firm IHS Research).

A key reason for congatec’s success is the consistent strategy of corporate expansion. Today, congatec has six subsidiaries located in Taiwan, Japan, China, the US, Australia and the Czech Republic. In addition, the company has worldwide distribution agreements with major partners. In the Americas, congatec works with Arrow, Avnet and Mouser Electronics, among others.

Another success factor, especially with a view to the future of the company, is the recent expansion into the Mini-ITX single board computer market and the addition of Embedded Design & Manufacturing Services (EDMS). EDMS enables congatec to support custom developments throughout the entire product life cycle, a service that is already popular with many customers. The new company logo, introduced during electronica 2014, reflects the extended offering and highlights the diversity of the new congatec brand.

congatec CEO Gerhard Edi explains: "Thanks to our highly professional global workforce and a business strategy that always has the best interest of the customer in mind, the start-up from 2004 has become a serious player in the international embedded market with an expected sales volume of 85 million US dollars in fiscal year 2014. We are proud of this development and of our exceptional team that has made this success possible. Our past accomplishments are also an incentive: Our goal now is to be among the five leading embedded solution providers worldwide by 2020."
