ย 9th anniversary of THAUMATEC TECH GROUP

The 9th anniversary of THAUMATEC TECH GROUP was celebrated with a great cake and BIG tasty slices, as below.

The right sweet motivation which fosters THAUMA and TEC together.

Why Thaumatec?

We started with a name that combines what we set out to accomplish. โ€œThaumโ€ (which is the basic unit of magic according to Terry Pratchettโ€™s discworld) & Technology = Thaumatec and we have created Magic with Technology.

That is also why we asked muralszop again to create something magical in our office with a new mascot, the Thaumdraco.

All Thaumatec magicians will provide as well continue in the future the magic needed for excellent projects and products and Thaumdraco is watching.

We also can always very much appreciate other Experts who create magic and come and will join us too and get big cakes.

THAUMATEC TECH GROUP opened its new office in Eindhoven, the Netherlands! In recent years we serviced our Dutch customers from our Poland-based office; as demand is growing, we decided that we need a new space for our work and projects. 

Our Eindhoven office will be dedicated exclusively to attend our customers (or potential ones) and partners, to exchange ideas and knowledge to drive innovative and creative projects, and most of all to deliver operationalย services. We are aiming to bring all of our expertise as a HealthTech software house closer to the demand for it.

The Eindhoven office is operating in Dutch and will be run by Jan-Willem Deutekom, one of Thaumaticโ€™s founding partners. โ€œWe are all thrilled about the launch of our new office. Itโ€™s located in the heart of Eindhovenโ€™s creative tech-hot spot. For our many Dutch clients, we have an office on their doorstep againโ€, Jan-Willem says.

Photo walk in our new office

It was always very important for us to work in outstanding places. We believe that a comfortable office can influence the way we work and live. Thatโ€™s why our villa office, located in one of the most touristic places in Wrocล‚aw near Hala Stulecia, was an amazing place for work and entertainment โ€“ we spend there few years on developing projects and enjoying big garden.

But the time is moving fast and our company is growing. We needed a new place, where all our employees can have enough space and we were sure that once again it has to be the best office in the city.

Thatโ€™s why, a few months ago we moved to our new office โ€“ an old but fully renovated tenement house in the heart of Wrocล‚aw, located on Lelewela 8 street. The place is way bigger than the previous one, giving us enough space for new people coming every month to our company.

We are more than happy that a few days ago we were visited by a photographer from local radio and our new headquarters became a hero of a โ€œPhotowalkโ€ cycle on their website. The idea of the radio photo walks is to show a bit hidden, but still outstanding places in our city.

You can see those amazing pictures HERE!

If you are fascinated by the history of this building (as we are), you can see itโ€™s past HERE!

Before and after the II world war, the building was a typical tenement house, being a hospitable home for many generations. Last residents moved from the building in 1986 and after 12 years, the building was fully renovated in 1998.

We believe that this amazing building will be now a comfortable office for us!

If you are interested in seeing those interiors with your own eyes โ€“ feel more than welcome to visit our office and drink the best coffee in the city with us.
