commatec. This is us.
As a service provider for technical documentation, we explain what your machine can do. Even with complex processes, we describe the optimal use of your product step by step.
Commatec is backed by decades of experience as a service provider for technical documentation. Since the 1990s, we have been creating operating instructions and instruction of use for our customers in medical technology, mechanical engineering and electrical engineering.
We support you when you lack the time and personnel to professionally create your technical documentation. As a service provider, we absorb the notorious peak loads for you.
As a team we work on your projects in a homely old building in the center of Giessen. Europe-wide. Optionally, we come to you on site when we need information about your latest technology.
