Press Release Detail

On 8 June 2018, Missler Software’s almost entire management team went to Paderborn, north Germany to celebrate 20 years of its long-standing distributor in this country.


Moldtech: the company is founded in 1998 by Jörg Rottkamp, who starts with a team of 3 people (Hajo Schmitz, Dirk Boehlefeld et Andreas Thull), based only on the force of their ambition, their skills and their faith in themselves and in the French TopSolid software.

The German company is now a prosperous company of 65 people and counting! Located in all of the major regions of Germany, it provides its services to more than 1,000 manufacturing companies.  Initially focused on mechanics, and more specifically machining for complex machines, the company also followed in the extension of TopSolid in the mid-2000s, moving towards integrated design / manufacturing for woodworking trades.

This adventure and continued growth, entirely self-financed by success and the constant support of Missler Software, deserved recognition during a party hosted by our German friends, as only they know how.

The party: a hangar at Paderborn airport was hired out to welcome employees, customers and of course the French creator of TopSolid, Missler Software. More than 300 people gathered for this celebratory event, where the spirit and strength of the group filled the air. What a pleasure to (re)discover customers from 20 years ago, who have themselves experienced success and growth using TopSolid. It was also a vibrant and precious testimony for Franco-German friendship, and all that it can generate in wealth, happiness and emotion.

Tomorrow: Moldtech and Missler Software will of course continue their journey, with great technical and commercial ambitions to promote the digital chain and Industry 4.0 in Germany, for the greater good of European industry. Success breeds success, and Moldtech and TopSolid will not stop there, even though a pause for celebration reminds us that we must also take the time to appreciate what has been achieved.

TopSolid: the German-language market (Dach) is now the leading international market for the French software publisher, ahead of the Japanese market. The demands of these two very exacting markets have lead to an ever-increasing quality of the product, and the transfer of production know-how.

Congratulations to Moldtech and TopSolid, and all the Franco-German teams who have contributed to this great success!
