Who we are
We are a unique mix of screen printing experts, engineers, assembly specialists, developers, programmers, mechanical engineers, material scientists, marketing wizards and financial experts who keep a close eye on the latter.
And we are all shareholders of our company. Of our Exentis. All of us. Without any exception. You will not find that anywhere else.
Our lawyers have told us not to write anything like this. It is possible that there is another company of a similar size with a comparable business model, in which all the employees have a stake, somewhere else in the world.
We do not believe that. But we believe in the uniqueness of Exentis and its technology, for the benefit of our customers.
That is why we have made this statement anyway.
However, we are also absolutely united. We are determined to offer the users of our 3D technology platform, our 3D community members, unique value added.
And for the sake of completeness: Yes, we do have something like a Management Board and a Board of Directors. Some say unfortunately – others fortunately.
