Our Story

WW Technologies started out as "Woodwelding". It emerged from the innovative minds at Creaholic, a premier Swiss innovation firm located in Biel. Founded by the renowned Elmar Mock, the genius behind the Swatch®, Creaholic dedicated five years to the meticulous development of this technology.
This proactive incubation project encompassed foundational research, development, and validation of various applications. In 2000, a strategic collaboration was forged between Creaholic and GPI SA, leading to the establishment of WoodWelding SA. Their shared vision was to fine-tune the technology and introduce it to the global market.
