Company Profile

A German Odyssey

CS GmbH has been created end of 2011 in order to strengthen our collaboration with ESOC and EUMETSAT. In 2010 CS has been selected as frame contractor for the GFC8 and it has become obvious that it was necessary to have both management and development capabilities in the vicinity of the Agency on top of the needs to match German legal requirements (in particular AüG). Being first created to be a front office to support our ESOC activities, CS GmbH after nearly 5 years of existence has now the size and the capability of leading projects and activities on its own. Thanks to ESOC, EUMETSAT and CS Support, CS GmbH is now composed of 32 engineers and consultants.
