Ascon Systems about us


Our Vision

A world where
seemingly impossible
ideas become reality.

We create the foundation for a holistic digital transformation that enables speed, efficiency and productivity at an unseen level. We dissolve the existing inefficiencies and inflexibilities, making a consistent, standardized, automated and autonomous digitization across all factory levels possible. In times of increased competition and economic pressures we enable our customers to reduce costs and efficiently by giving a much wider range of people the capability of automating these processes.

Ascon Systems was founded in 2017. In the meantime, we have transformed into an established, multi-award-winning high-tech start-up and are breaking new ground with our digital twin technology.

With our currently more than 110 employees at 5 locations (Mainz, Stuttgart, Heilbronn, Munich and Berlin), we are revolutionizing how planning and management will take place
in the future. We combine the spirit of a start-up with the know-how of an experienced management team that is well connected to the market. We can also prove our success with numerous prizes and awards. Thanks to solvent investors, we have the freedom to advance our products and continue on our progressive path into the future.
