5 locations in 5 years - the journey of KALTENBACH.SOLUTIONS

In 2023, Kaiser-Joseph-Strasse 179 in Freiburg im Breisgau will become our new company headquarters. How did it come about? The company's history began in 2017 with its founding in Lörrach. That same year, company founder Valentin Kaltenbach was drawn to the tech metropolis of Berlin. As a former traditional mechanical engineer, he found the necessary inspiration and creativity for his path to becoming a digital entrepreneur in the capital.

In 2018, it was off to the steel city in the heart of Europe - to Düsseldorf! After all, 80% of all strategic decisions in the steel industry are made within a radius of 100 kilometers. Many customers have their headquarters here, and the proximity to BDS AG (Bund Deutscher Stahlhandel) in Düsseldorf-Heerdt was also wonderful.

In 2020, funding offers from the state of Baden-Württemberg for innovative entrepreneurs in the area of tension between steel and AI lured us back to the south, initially to Breisach am Rhein. Two years later, we landed in Freiburg im Breisgau. From our point of view, it's a lively, lovable city and, as an innovative university location, it's also an attractive job market.
