Our history

The high customer satisfaction has driven a rapid growth to all sectors: more fields of expertise, larger team, more industries.

Kenotom launched officially in 2014 with a small team of 2 engineers and the first customer in the automotive sector. The first project was the Hardware in the Loop test-automation of an Automotive Transmission Control Unit.  Autosar Basic Software development was added in our portfolio in 2015. In 2016 we started dealing with modelling of physical systems for hardware in the loop simulations. In 2017 we entered the field of Function Software Development of Safety Relevant automotive powertrain applications. Electronics design was also added at this time. The test automation activities expanded in the areas of unit tests, component tests and general MiL, SiL, HiL testautomation.

The team has constantly keep growing together with our projects reaching in 2018 the number of 50 people, while the tendency is still growing. Kenotom has furthermore managed to enter additional industries, making its first steps in the industrial automation.

Our Strengths

Talent
Having become the most reputable company in the field of Embedded Systems in northern Greece, we have access to the best entry-level engineers of the area. We hire the best and train them to become experts.

Large experience in the industry
Our leading people have many years experience in large European companies in the automotive, avionics and telecommunication sectors. We are familiar with the industry coding standards, processes and documentation, but also with the daily way of work and the way of communication. This enables us to adapt quickly to your specific needs.

Strong connections to the institutes
We cooperate very closely to the surrounding institutes, through internship programs, diploma thesis, student team sponsorships, consultancy and common research projects. This gives us access to state of the art know how.

Management of high-stress situations
We have dealt with many project rescue situations, where we are engaged in the project when the schedules cannot be followed and deadlines cannot be met. Technical expertise, hard work and positive spirit despite the challenges is the only way to turn the situation into success.

Geographical proximity
Thessaloniki international airport “Macedonia” lies only 15 minutes drive from our premises. With many direct connection flights all around Europe we can be there the next day. The EU membership guarantees hassle-free travelling within Schengen area.

Cultural proximity
The minimal differences in the mentality between the European countries guarantee no communication issues. Furthermore, with our long experience working either in or for European companies we can bridge even these small differences. We connect the worlds and combine the positive things of both sides.

Cost
Significantly lower cost compared to central and northern European countries without any compromise in the quality.

Working with us

Working with Kenotom differs only in a subtle way from working with any company in driving distance. The flexibility of the team combined with the geographical proximity enables on site meetings and support in short time.  The one-hour time difference with CET, avoids communication issues – we are always available to reach directly either by phone or email.

The Kenotom teams work either independently, having a single point of contact with the customer, or integrate completely to the customer's development team. In both cases transparent procedures and periodical reporting tailored to your organization’s processes minimize the risks.

As a customer oriented company, adaptability is a top priority. We are experienced and adapt to many situations, processes and models, i.e., VModel, KanBan, Agile/Scrum, CMMI, RUP. We adapt any chosen cooperation model: Fixed price, time-based, or dedicated team.
