Logo: 30 Years of CONET

Hennef, Mai 22nd, 2017. Exactly 30 years ago yesterday – on May 21st 1987 – the signing of the Articles of Partnership for the CoNet Computer & Netzwerke GmbH marked the start of our CONET Corporate History.

With more than 400 employees and sales exceeding 70 million Euros, CONET has successfully established its standing as a highly competent systems and consulting company for SAP, Infrastructure, Communications, Software and Experts, ranking among the best system houses in Germany according to recent surveys by leading German IT magazine Computerwoche and having repeatedly been awarded with the Top Job certificate for being an outstanding employer.

In the early days, just a handful of computer scientists, IT experts and mathematicians started the business in Euskirchen and soon moved to larger offfices in Siegburg, predominantly managing projects in IT training and logistics. 1991 the growing team relocated to Hennef, 1992 the sales renvenues generated with an ever widening portfolio encompassing almost all areas of IT solutions and support exceeded the first threshold of 10 million D-Mark. In 1996, 80 employees moved into the purpose-built new office buildings which still house the company’s headquarters today. Sales and staff continued to grow, as did CONET’s network of subsidiaries and locations, today including offices in Neubrandenburg, Berlin, Augsburg, Frankfurt, Ludwigsburg, Frankenthal, Koblenz and Vienna and a network of sales and implementation partners across the EMEA region.

“To be able to look back on 30 years of successful business and growth in the competitive IT market is filling us with joy and pride“, says Anke Höfer, CEO of CONET Technologies AG. “Pride in our employees, who in their roles as leadership personnel, consulting experts and IT specialists have accompanied us in many cases for the majority of our company’s journey, who carry our success forward and who give a human face to our technology services. Pride in our corporate culture with its focus on long-term successful customer relationships, innovation providing strong customer benefits, fostering leadership & cooperation and the emphasis on personal responsibility – our CONET LIFE, which always has and will continue to help us preserve our medium-sized company structures and working methods even during our ongoing growth.”

„We always want to be one of the best, both as a service provider and as an employer. With our dedicated employees as well as together with our customers and partners, with whom we have been dealing so truthfully, innovatively and successfully in the past, we are very confident to be able to stay true to these standards in the years to come,“ Höfer concludes.
