What our customers say about us


"kothes took over this responsibility many years ago, not only for the creation of technical documentation for SIG, but also for the processing of daily business, translations, reprography and even hosting the Content Management System. This gives us more freedom to concentrate on our main task: the further development of carton packaging systems. Over the years we've come to know kothes, not only as a trustworthy and competent partner, but also as a company that's always available to advise us on the appropriate steps to take for the future of our technical documentation. Of course, this only works if you move, yourself! We're looking forward to continued successful cooperation."

Dirk Noske, Head of Legal Compliance & Documentation


"It is very helpful that at kothes, we have a permanent contact person who manages even complex projects (with several participants from different companies) reliably and transparently."

Dr. Stephanie Thoennissen, Head of Business Development & Regulatory Affairs


"The competent consulting, the delivery reliability and the result have won us over. We can always recommend cooperation with kothes."

Sylvia Sander, Connection and Positioning System, Development Mechanics


"In kothes we've found an uncomplicated – and above all – a very professional partner, who's led us to our goal in both a focused and successful manner. The result of the new operating manuals is impressive and brings us to a new level."

Oliver Giaffreda, Team Leader of Marketing Services
