We are an "established start-up" for Industry 4.0, IoT, IIoT, digitisation and M2M - there are now many terms for what we do. For us this means that we use innovative key technologies such as Bluetooth, LoRa, LTE or NB-IoT to network your plants and machines - as easily and quickly as possible.
We work B2B, deliberately cross-industry, in order to adapt the experiences from other industries, and see ourselves as service providers to the industry. This means: We support you from the brainstorming to the certification and are also at your disposal with our after-sales support. Our developers for embedded hardware and software work out your individual IoT solution or use high-quality industrial devices, systems and components from well-known manufacturers or find the best mix of both for you.
We have been successful and "established" on the market for over 10 years - something that is still rare in this new industry. After our foundation in 2007 as a pure distribution provider of electronic components, we launched our first, self-developed product on the market in 2010 and since then have received numerous awards for our innovations. Besides distribution, we are constantly expanding our development work. We preserve our "start-up mentality" through our young, agile team, which is always developing new smart, sometimes crazy technical approaches to offer you the best and fastest solution for your IoT project.
Because in our experience, such solutions must be one thing above all else - simple. We make sure that our approach can be integrated into your existing system with minimal effort - using innovative radio technology and standardized interfaces and protocols. In this way, your machines and systems, or even your measurement technology and sensors can be networked both simply and quickly and are compatible with all common management systems, cloud solutions or your ERP software. We train you and your employees in our workshop program or design a workshop tailored to your needs.
We are a young team of 18 employees, half of whom are now hardware and software developers - and the number is growing. We are fascinated by the further development, advancement and application of the latest M2M technologies. Even though we deal with this every day, we are always amazed at the enormous advantages and even new business areas that result from IoT applications for our customers. We love the challenge, because every project is different and we remain hungry for new things.
Technician through and through - that is Ralf Schoula.
His professional career began in 1988 in the classic manner with an apprenticeship as a radio and television technician and initially worked as a technical employee in Frankfurt. This was not yet technical enough for him, so the 2-year technical school in Weilburg followed to become a state-certified technician in electrical engineering with a focus on information electronics. After graduating in 1996, he was Technical Manager for a French company for 10 years. He then went into business for himself in the field of telecommunications and joined m2m Germany in 2009 in the Business Development, Embedded Modules department. Since 2016 he has been managing director, supervising customer-specific development projects and research projects with universities. He is also responsible for sales and as a key account for the embedded sector.
In addition to his job, Ralf Schoula is also involved in shooting sports, was runner-up in the air rifle discipline in Hesse in 2018 and is an enthusiastic cyclist and motorcyclist.
Marius Nickolai describes himself as a "businessman who is enthusiastic about technology and combines practical, technical and economic thinking".
The start for this was his training as an information electronics engineer. After a short period in the job, he joined the technical sales department at m2m Germany. There he completed his dual business administration studies, specialising in SME management, at Studium Plus/Wetzlar, THM Gießen-Friedberg and for one semester at Obuda University in Budapest. After graduation, he continued to work in technical sales and m2m project management until 2016, when he took over as Managing Director. He is now responsible for sales, marketing, human resources and controlling - but continues to support customers and projects. When he is not working, he explores the world, tries his hand at various sports and cheers Frankfurt's Eintracht.
