Our story

From the idea to the offer of tailor-made solutions.

Basic idea and motivation

Bernhard Römer and Felix Furtmayr got to know each other during their bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering at the TH Ingolstadt. During their final theses, they discovered that precision parts are often difficult to obtain for private customers and students. Because contract manufacturers do not like to deal with less lucrative and complex individual pieces or with incomplete drawings. This gave rise to the idea of selling CNC-manufactured special parts on the Internet, facilitating access and optimizing the entire process. The two founders made the decision to start their own business with the project.

Beginnings and founding

While online trading in components was the founding idea, the focus has shifted to the technology itself, because we see the lack of digital tools as the biggest hurdle to our vision of the networked factory. We ourselves believed that it made no sense to type the text from e-mails and that it had to be possible to automatically calculate, plan and derive NC programs. We see ourselves as an intermediary between your company and the digital world. With Automation Pro we want to deliver a practical complete solution for manufacturing companies.

Building the network and team

Little by little, further research was carried out, a network of contacts was built up and the idea concretized. With the support of TH Nürnberg and FAU Erlangen, both founders devoted their master’s theses to the further development of the project. In October 2014 the team was expanded by three programmers. An Exist start-up grant provided the initial funding for the project. It started with a lathe in their own garage. A partner network has been set up since 2017, so that the team could focus more and more on optimizing the process and software components.
