Software and service provider Raynet from Paderborn celebrates its 20th anniversary


The future began 20 years ago: Raynet. According to this motto, around 200 guests, including business partners, employees, friends and family, celebrated this special anniversary in the Paderborn Quax Hangar.

At the age of 11 years, Ragip Aydin, founder and managing director of Raynet, came to Germany. Born in the metropolis Istanbul, the hard-working boy from afar became one of the most successful entrepreneurs in Paderborn.

With more than 100 employees, Raynet is one of the leading and most innovative service and solution providers in the field of information technology. At German and international locations, the company specializes in the architecture, development, training, implementation and operation of the entire range of Enterprise Application Lifecycle Management.

Raynet’s strategy aims at a holistic system: The organization of all software products following a uniform principle. From initial installation to regular updates, software products require continuous maintenance. The solutions provided by this IT specialist fully cover the lifecycle of the customer’s software requirements. The advantage for the customer is that the system administrators are able to perform all necessary actions around software products automatically. This means significant cost savings, accelerated system maintenance and less effort for system conversions, for example to Windows 10.

Together with a large network of well-known partners, including T-Systems, Bechtle, Aspera, USU, Microsoft, Lenovo and many others, the Paderborn-based company serves well-known customers such as Bertelsmann, Media-Saturn, Deutsche Bahn, Türk Telekom, Rhenus, Deutsche Post and Schwäbisch Hall.

Not only the successful projects and long-standing customer relationships, but also the everyday life, characterized by innovations, have already helped Raynet to win many awards: Raynet was named Top Innovator and thus made it into Germany’s elite of the 100 most innovative medium-sized companies. The German Federal Association of Entrepreneur Associations awarded the prize for entrepreneurial diversity in the business category and the Chamber of Industry and Commerce honored the company within the scope of a “Best Practice Tour” for its training and promotion of young talent.

Raynet is not only a popular employer because of its many awards. “We don’t just work together, but we celebrate together,” says Ragip Aydin. “It’s the people who make Raynet what Raynet is. I am very proud of the entire team and am looking forward to the next 20 years.” With an annual turnover of 10 million Euros, Raynet is a rock-solid company with promising prospects shaped by goals and visions.

One of the next big milestones is already up and running: More room for growth. The ground-breaking ceremony for the new building will take place this year at the Paderborn Technology Park. By the end of 2020, the new headquarters with plenty of space for flexible and innovative work is supposed to emerge here.
