What sets 1stQ apart and what 1stQ does differently.

The 1stQ DNA


Our innovations create added value and solve real problems.


We are there for you – with expertise and new ideas as a partner at eye level.


As an owner-managed company based in Germany, we take responsibility.

We want to do things better. This means sometimes also taking unusual paths and seeing the impossible as a possibility. Entrepreneurial independence, constructive dissatisfaction and a fascination with the interaction of people and technology have always been our driving force. It is not without reason that we invest in research and development more than almost any other company. After all, “leading” does not only mean being better. It means constantly getting better – not in comparison with others, but with oneself. This is the only way that we can give our best for others and work with you to provide pioneering solutions.
