The EasternGraphics Story – Part 1: Visions, People and Teamwork

Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others. Jonathan Swift (Anglo-Irish novelist, 1667 – 1745) described with these words, how every entrepreneur must feel at the very beginning of his career. On the occasion of our 20th anniversary we would like to give you a little insight into the company’s history.

Like most companies, ours started out very small. In 1995 five like-minded graduates of the Technical University of Ilmenau began highly motivated with the realisation of the first visions at the former building of the technology and innovation center in Ilmenau. The world of office furniture should be turned upside down with innovative software!
