Steen Mikkelsen is a driven innovator, continuing his career in creating new groundbreaking developments in CNC technology.
True innovation is reserved for those who are curious enough to discover and see the future and dedicated enough to build it with a solid foundation. Steen Mikkelsen has extensive experience and that rare quality to hit upon an idea that he can transform from his head to fruition in the production world. He is a proven innovator and has used his curious mind making a difference, a true Pioneer.
For more than 25 years, he has worked with technical innovations and business development. Always with the same approach: His ability to see new possibilities by new unique recombinations of technology and automation.
The graphic industry is familiar with his innovative solutions such as i-cut vision, which became the industry standard within digital cutting of graphics. The machine vision and machine motion inventions by Steen and his teams are now utilized in virtually all digital cutters, routers, lasers, in the digital print world.
Steen Mikkelsen built two companies. First, Mikkelsen Graphic Engineering Inc. and then, together with his son, Mikkelsen Converting Technology. He sold them both to large international companies and is now focusing on disrupting the textile industry. A mega-industry that still has not solved the sewing automation challenge.
There is no formula for great innovation. It is a result of what we create together. It is our future.
We see a future with demands for change. We see demand for bringing production back home to the local areas. It creates greater agility, consistent quality, and produces only what is needed. Overproduction should never be good business. We see a need for new solutions where sustainability goes hand in hand with a solid business.
That is why we see FASTSEWN as our future.
Our team is working hard bringing FESTSEWN to market!
