About us

The company was founded in 2014 by Mads Find Madsen and Kresten Juel Jensen who based on their industry experience and entrepreneurial drive found that digital models should be used to a much larger extent in the industry, than was the case already. Based on the high level of expertise within Multiphysics Simulations the company quickly became a proud member of the certified COMSOL consultant’s family.

On 1st Feb. 2017 Matteo Lualdi, Tore Findsen, Anders Lindhard Christensen, and Lene Gottrup Barfod joined the partnership, with a common ambition of supplying the industry with qualified insights in a fast and flexible manner. Since then the activities have increased – especially within the four core industries: Production & Process, Med. Tech, Sound & hearing, and Energy.

Together with academia, we seek to participate in development projects which allow us to dig deeper into a specific area and work with the newest technologies.

We continuously strive to deliver a sustainable business impact in all our projects.

The team

Our team comprises specialists in Chemistry, Physics, Statistics, Mechanical Engineering, and assisting technologies such as ML and AI.

We all have one thing in common: the ambition of enhancing the value of data and scientific knowledge throughout the entire value chain. As we see it, the most effective and engaging way goes via modelling and human interaction.
