HEICON Global Engineering

Safety and security in systems engineering: professional, experienced, persistent

Being a technological consulting company with a very high expertise in methods and processes for safety-critical systems and embedded solutions, we create value for our customers by applying our knowledge in a reliable and persistent way.

Our story

On 1st october 2005 founder and CEO Martin Heininger started his freelance career. He had been an employee with several companies before, all of them in safety critical industries.

Becoming a freelancer made his dream come true. This way he could realize his longing for high project quality and customer orientation while being economically independent.

From the start, his focus was on systems- and software engineering, software verification and requirements engineering. Initially his projects were mainly in the domain of avionics, but since 2011 he extended his range of acitivities into automation technology, railway and automotive industries.

Customers may since benefit from his wide experience and the knowledge and best practices he gained from many successfully completed projects.

In January 2018 HEICON – Global Engineering GmbH was founded realizing the goal to support the customers more professionally, with a broader portfolio.

Only the one who knows his goal will find the path. (Laozi)
