Company History

Our story: Where we come from

Acquisition by Phoenix Mecano

BEWATEC turned 25, joined the Phoenix Mecano Group and realigned itself. The company thereby became a center of competence for patient-centered hardware and software within the Group.

Transition to software provider

Our Berlin location, which is dedicated to the further development of the platform, was founded. The ConnectedCare patient app for the digital patient journey was launched in 2019, completing the transition from hardware producer to system provider for software and hardware.

Hardware production in China

In an effort to expand hardware production, BEWATEC Technologies Co., Ltd. was founded in China. 2017 also marked the birth of the BEWATEC.ConnectedCare platform.
