About BETWEEN Technology
BETWEEN Technology is a multinational consultancy with more than 20 years of experience in offering comprehensive services and technological solutions. We have a double function, look for the best way to meet the expectations of our customers and offer our workers a professional career.
BETWEEN Technology is the result of the merger of SOLID Engineering and ADICIONA Servicios Informáticos.
SOLID was founded in 2000 by the industrial engineer Francesc Civit and evolved from the design of machinery and the automation of industrial processes to product design, giving service to the entire production cycle, from design to industrialization processes. As of 2007, the company incorporated consultancy and outsourcing services in various branches of engineering, so that at the time of the merger it had a team of more than 150 consultants with extensive experience in both Engineering and Operations and with a geographical presence. in several countries, especially in the Asian area.
ADICIONA founded in 2003 by Eli Abad, graduated in Physics from the University of Barcelona, offered customized IT consulting services for medium and large companies. In the beginning, it developed an outgoing mail filter to automate compliance with the LSSI (Anti-Spam Law), but the lack of commercial success of the product made them concentrate on ICT outsourcing services. In 2007, they added technology profile selection services to their portfolio. At the time of the merger they had a team of more than 90 people.
In July 2015, joining forces to improve the day to day of our customers, BETWEEN Technology was born, adding the experience of both companies, which allows us to offer technological consulting services in the fields of mechanical and electronic engineering, IT and development of software, operations and continuous processes (chemical and petrochemical). Our goal is to lead the technological consulting market through our experience in the industry and the commitment of the staff of our company.
