ProGlove develops smart industrial wearables that enable manufacturing and logistics staff to work faster, safer and more efficiently. Process steps can be documented hands free whilst receiving instant feedback. Therefore, ergonomics, efficiency and quality are considerably improved. We connect the worker with the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Because we believe that no matter how automated working steps become, workers will remain an indispensable. Robots cannot substitute every step and system in the foreseeable future, therefore wearable devices are the connecting point between humans and machnes. Our smart solutions are used by renowned organizations in manufacturing, production, logistics and retail. ProGlove was founded in December 2014 after winning the Intel "Make it Wearable" Challenge in Silicon Valley. Following rapid growth, ProGlove successfully completed its second round of financing in 2018 with investors DIVC, Intel Capital, Bayern Kapital and GETTYLAB.
