Realtime Technology AG, or RTT, a German graphics software company opened a Royal Oak office to be nearer to the automotive engineering industry in the Detroit area. The staff has grown from 1 to 15 since 2005, and is expected to reach 30 this year. The new office was designed to function for up to 55 employees.
The company designs 3D graphic software that renders products so accurately that manufacturers use it to modify product design and materials without actually having to build prototypes.
RTT's client list includes Adidas, Audi, BASF, General Motors, Samsung, Sony Ericsson, Thyssen Krupp and Volkswagen. They were recently awarded The Favourite Web Site Award for their Audi R8 marketing video.
In a statement, RTT COO Peter Stevenson said, "RTT is dedicated to bringing our design software to new companies in Michigan and promoting the growth of the state's economic future."
