καινός

The Greek “Kainos” literally translates as “newness”. It implies the following: “of a new kind; unprecedented, novel, uncommon, unheard of”. It points to “newness of character”. Kainos describes the way we want to conduct business – not following conventional patterns but through “partnering” in the true sense of the word and living out our core values to realize a higher calling and purpose.

Our company slogan reinforces the idea: Purpose Driven Engineering.
