Controlware GmbH was founded in 1980 by Helmut Wörner in a garage in Götzenhain. This laid the foundation for successful development with a focus on system integration. Helmut Wörner has always paid special attention to flexibility, inventiveness and, above all, customer orientation. Robert Bosch's principle has always been a guideline for him: "It is better to lose money than trust." (Robert Bosch 1861 - 1942)
This motto still contributes to Controlware's sustainable and long-term business relationships with customers and partners today.
