Our goal…

To enable buyers and developers in the industry to select suppliers quickly, comprehensively and efficiently.

Our driving force: experience

The idea for Industry List arose from the problem that it is time-consuming and cost-intensive for the manufacturing industry to find suitable manufacturing companies.

The founders, themselves product developers, have had to deal with the problem in their daily work that common search methods are imprecise and provide outdated information. Therefore the search for the right manufacturing company is very time-consuming and therefore cost-intensive.

The presentation of most companies and their services does not correspond to the idea of an informative profile and ensures that a lot of time is spent on phone calls and messages to obtain missing information.

The Industry List team has dedicated itself to these core topics and the solution together with pilot customers and partners.

To ensure that the search for a manufacturing company does not remain a game of chance, the team has been working full-time on the cloud-based search platform since May 2018 and also offers services for supplier search and refinement of supplier master data.

At numerous events, such as the Accelerator Program of Frankfurt’s Goethe University, the Proceed competition “StartUp meets Mittelstand” or the Up2B Productbooster, the team was able to convince and count itself among the winners.

Our motivation

With the digitalization of the industry, many possibilities have developed to automate processes and to generate sustainable results. In order to take advantage of these opportunities, we have recognized that only high data quality will enable the successful implementation of new technologies.

Many successful processes and mechanisms are based on high-quality, valid and comprehensive data. Data that is not available across industries in the area of supplier selection and supplier management. We want to change this, so that the manufacturing industry in the German-speaking countries is optimally connected and continues to produce high-quality and innovative products with the good reputation “Made in Germany”.
