10th ANNIVERSARY | 10 years ago the journey began!
Cre8tek was founded on February 1, 2011.
Today, 10 years later, we only look back to see how far we have come during our amazing journey. A journey that paved the way for the renowned company Cre8tek is today. Cre8tek is a worldwide one-stop Electronics Manufacturing Service-provider, delivering box-build electronic and lighting products.
This is how we started out
Cre8tek started in a development house with project management in Denmark and a development department in China – close to the customers’ manufacturers. This ensured a safe and efficient dialogue and communication – from the customer’s product-idea to production and delivery. At this time, we only had our own office facilities, which included Development Department, Supply Chain Management, Technical Project Management and Administration.
The journey continued
At the request of customers – and as our business developed – we established our own assembly plant. Later we also established our own toolmaking, injection molding and die casting.
In the autumn of 2017, we moved all departments together in one location. At the same time, we were aware of the importance of a continuity in the staff as well as encouraging the collaboration format in the projects. We therefore chose, among other things, to furnish our new office facilities as an open office environment with Scandinavian decor.
At the same time, our project department in China was developed to such an extent that the daily customer project management went from being handled from Denmark to being handled from China. That is also why we, over a period, chose to close down our sales and project departments in Copenhagen and Munich. From our office in Hjørring (DK) we chose to focus on business development and customer support. This further strengthened the dialogue and communication with our customers.
In the same period, we shifted our focus from component design and component production to the development of complete box-build products.
10 years later – Our customers still have the highest priority
We continue to focus on electronics products in the consumer segment and in the semi-professional segment. This applies, for example, to the logistics industry, the POS (Point of sales) industry and the lighting industry. With our competencies in mechanics – and the materials and processes – we do also solve some production tasks on a few design products that do not contain electronics. Project execution and production orders continue to be handled in direct dialogue between customers and our department in China.
We want to increase our focus on offering our current and new customers box-build solutions (one-stop-shop solutions). By having Cre8tek developing and manufacturing their finished products, our customers can focus on creating new product-ideas and selling the products which are already in production. Currently we see great perspectives in IoT and 5G technology, where we already have ongoing projects and product manufacturing.
We would like to thank all our customers, partners and employees for the cooperation during our first 10 years.
