SUPPLYZ rebrands as RESONIKS and secures investment from Kvanted
THE HAGUE, 7. November 2023. RESONIKS becomes the new brand name of SUPPLYZ. The startup launches its renewed brand identity as it closes its seed investment round.
RESONIKS is proud to announce the first close of its 1.5 million euros round with Kvanted as the lead investor. The Nordic industrial tech investor, based in Helsinki, selected RESONIKS as one of its first startups to invest in. The startup is a perfect fit for Kvanted’s search for solutions that disrupt the industrial value chain to shape society. This strong partnership will ensure the continued success of RESONIKS and their determination to automate quality control for metal manufacturers using a novel AI-powered acoustic solutions.
"RESONIKS is a prime example of an industrial technology company that is reinventing heavy processes to create a more efficient and sustainable industrial value chain. We are excited to have the opportunity to support the RESONIKS team as they establish new standards for quality control. The team's dedication to efficiency and sustainability perfectly aligns with our mission at Kvanted," says Axel Ahlström, founding partner of Kvanted.
Innovation is the company’s core value, which encourages pivoting perspectives based on learning and customer feedback. This holds true for the rebranding, as the startup recentered their focus from supply chain solutions to revolutionizing quality control. RESONIKS resonates with this new focus, being a neologism created from the words resonance and Akustik (German for acoustics). The new brand identity highlights the unique acoustic aspect of the company’s sensor solutions.
With the solution implemented in the first factories and several product pre-orders, RESONIKS is ready to grow further and is looking for new talent to join the team. There are several open positions in hardware, software, and business development, with more positions to open in the near future. With offices in the multicultural Dutch city of The Hague, and the tech-driven Finnish city of Tampere, the startup attracts talent by offering the opportunity to join a truly diverse, dynamic, and motivated team.
