About us

Why exaas?

European products are coming under increasing pressure from international competition, and the innovative lead that has long been considered safe is diminishing.

However, we in Germany and Europe have a possibly crucial advantage – a huge treasure trove of technological knowledge.

What we need is a new era of industrial cooperation. Our shared industrial knowledge will be used to climb the next level of innovation and put European products back on pole position.

exaas will manage this change and enable the access to expert knowledge as easy if you would ask the colleague next door.

exaas will be the central European platform where technological knowledge is found and traded.

We shape the industrial future!

exaas will be the central European platform where technological knowledge is found and traded.
