Math2Market GmbH celebrated its 10th Anniversary with a fitting party attended by all employees and their families on October 9. After a hike through the gorgeous Palatinate Forest that surrounds Kaiserslautern, we enjoyed delicious food by good music performed by the band grape.. In a short journey through time, the CEO Andreas Wiegmann PhD recalled the most important milestones in the history of Math2Market.
How it all began ...
The company was founded in 2011 as a spin-off by three employees of the Flow and Material Simulation (SMS) department at Fraunhofer ITWM in Kaiserslautern. Andreas Wiegmann PhD had already started the development of GeoDict in 2001, and with the incorporation of Dr. Jürgen Becker in 2006 and Dr. Erik Glatt in 2008, the functionality of the simulation software was expanded, always taking into account customer needs. The scientists recognized very early on that GeoDict had great potential to revolutionize conventional processes in research institutions and development departments in the long term. Their idea was to make mathematical formulas for material development applicable to engineers and material designers in industry and research via the GeoDict user interface.
This then gave rise to the company name MATH2MARKET when it was founded.
What initially started as a software solution for filtration simulations was soon successfully used for many other applications, for example for battery and fuel cell development, materials development and research (e.g. of composite materials, foams, textiles, ...) or in digital rock physics and drill core analysis. Since then, simulations have proven to be an efficient alternative to time-consuming test series and cost-intensive prototyping for Math2Market's customers. The processes in material design and non-destructive quality testing have been significantly accelerated by digitization.
From startup to an international company ...
Math2Market is today one of the leading providers of digital solutions for materials research and development. More than 350 companies and research institutions in 28 countries on 6 continents are using GeoDict and benefit from the wide range of services offered by Math2Market and its sales partners.
The daily motivation in the company is perfectly summarized by Andreas Wiegmann: "We accompany our customers in the digitalization of their processes and enable them to accelerate their research and development with highly efficient and user-friendly software. In an age of rapid technological development, we help our customers to realize their groundbreaking ideas for tomorrow's materials today."
Math2Market would like to take this opportunity to thank all employees, customers and partners who have contributed decisively to the success of the company. We are grateful to our customers and partners for the many years of trustful cooperation and the lively professional exchange, which always spurs us on to top performance. The commitment, expertise and team spirit of the currently 46 employees at the Kaiserslautern site not only increase the performance of the software, but they are also the basis for a very good customer relationship and healthy company growth.
