Managing Directors

Creating your future

The three founding members, Jörg Ostenrieder, Tom Wolf and Patrick Scholl, form the management team of die:haptiker GmbH.
Early on, we had the goal of independence in mind and thus had already started to build up a small customer base while studying, which kept growing. We have been working successfully for customers from various sectors of industry since 1996. We support projects from the initial idea through to implementation.
Thanks to these many years of experience, we understand our customers perfectly and have grown to fully meet all challenges. We are not only creatives when it comes to the product or companion in the field of design development, but also supportive corporate consultants – an individual partner for professional design.
These various skills and our enthusiasm for the interests of our customers combined with perseverance and wide-ranging commitment form the perfect basis for the success of die:haptiker GmbH so far.
