"Technology is the effort to save effort."

ZUMOLab is a small, owner-operated engineering company which specialises in the development of test benches. The company was founded in 2014 by Christian Moritz and Dominic Zuleger – two former students of electrical engineering – as a spin-off from RWTH Aachen. Our office is located in Wesseling and is therefore within the sphere of influence of three outstanding universities in North Rhine-Westphalia – Cologne, Bonn and Aachen. Through our work, we build a bridge between research and industry: As, in addition to project planning and software development, we support and advise scientists in all aspects of their scientific work, from the choice of topics to the presentation of the results.
After completing their studies and working for many years in the field of machine planning and software development, Christian and Dominic recognised the need in the university research environment to support “non-specialist” institutes in the planning and development of their experimental setups. Soon afterwards, the Institute of Chemical Process Engineering at RWTH Aachen became their first customer and have been supported by ZUMOLab since, especially in the development of software projects with the graphic development environment LabVIEW.
A few months after creation, the duo was reinforced by Stefanie Kriescher, who has been managing the company together with Christian since autumn 2015. Stefanie supports the team primarily through her doctoral experience and helps to translate the scientific requirements into real test and inspection systems.
Over the years a variety of challenging tasks and customer-specific requirements have broadened our horizons and sharpened our core competencies. Today we offer interdisciplinary engineering services and products, including solutions for customers from the university environment and industrial customers.
