- Think like a paradox

Paradox Engineering stems from the desire of going beyond what is generally meant as impossible, or just too complicated to be designed and deployed – to make it come true

The world is increasingly complex and interconnected, generating more data than ever before. This offers enormous possibilities to provide safety and resilience, limit the waste of resources, and contribute to the well-being of humanity.

We think like a paradox and engineer intelligent technology solutions to unleash opportunities for people and communities through digital information.

We are MinebeaMitsumi’s IoT Excellence Center for a fully networked IoT society.

Established in 2005 and headquartered in Switzerland, we were born as a telecommunication company, serving the niche but very interesting market of industrial data transportation. We initially developed a one-stop-shop business model providing virtual networks to connect any customer industrial operation site and enable remote and condition monitoring programs.

Then we pushed the concept further by designing and engineering pioneer technologies to implement unique interoperable and highly scalable network infrastructures for industrial and urban applications. As a matter of fact, we came to offer an integrated portfolio of future proof Internet of Things solutions for Open Cities and other smart environments.

Since 2015 we are part of the Japanese Group MinebeaMitsumi, leading global provider of Electro Mechanics Solutions™ with a notable history and track record of technology excellence. Thanks to our vision and innovation capabilities, the Group is accelerating its digital transformation and contributing to a fully networked IoT society.

Being a MinebeaMitsumi company, we can leverage the Group’s technological, manufacturing and commercial assets, at the same working with a consolidated network of highly skilled partners. We control Tinynode, Swiss company specialized in wireless vehicle detection systems and Smart Parking technologies.
