Two years have passed since the carve-out from Airbus Group and the creation of SPHEREA Group. Two successful years during which we had to face new challenges and opportunities and to adapt our behavior to a flexible medium-sized company. Our relatively small size, with about 40 employees in Ulm, allows us to enjoy the agility of a small business.

In 2016 SPHEREA Germany moved into a new company building. The Plaza Center is located in Ulm-Söflingen and is one of the essential office locations in Ulm, used by companies working on innovative software solutions and high-end customer services. A new, modern environment means new possibilities for our partners and customers. The benefits gained from independence are faster action and reaction. We are able to extend our product portfolio and to create future-oriented solutions.
