This is how it all started

In 1981, in collaboration with a fellow student of the technical college for electrical engineering in Krefeld, Karl-Heinz Hütten founded the C.O.P Computer Organisation und Programmierung GmbH. The company, initially intended to be a student side-line job, grew rapidly. As early as the 1980s the duo from Krefeld successfully programmed the first industry software for a timber dealer, in those days based on a Commodore office computer. In 1993 they were one of the pioneers to develop software based purely on Windows.

A short time later, they converted their timber industry software on the basis of the ERP solution from NAVISION, which began by integrating financial accounting and merchandise management. In 2001, as a result of the merger of C.O.P Computer GmbH and Software IN-TAKT GmbH – founded in 1994 by the current CEO of acadon Klaus Fander – with K&H Förster GmbH from Erftstadt, acadon AG was brought to life. With overseas subsidiaries in Switzerland and Austria, and the expansion of the business in the Netherlands, as well as offices in Braunschweig and Bremen, the company continues to expand.

acadon is fully financed by equity. Since the company’s foundation, any surpluses produced have been consistently invested in the development of the business.
