Our Story

Building the Future

In July 2022, Ferdinand, Aaron, and Johan founded Benetics in Zurich. Their mission: transform construction with digital solutions. Ferdinand brought practical skills as an electrician, while Aaron and Johan had 15 years at Google in AI, big data, and scalable infrastructure. We’ve achieved a lot since then, but we’re just getting started. Our vision: better working environments, efficient resource use, and higher productivity in the construction industry.
