Technical Content Team

TCTeam GmbH (Technical Content Team) is an independent technical documentation service provider which is located in Bonn and was found in March 2010. We offer preparation, consulting and assessment services and are specialised in the field of rail vehicle technology.
We are consistently dedicated to technical competence and customer orientation. Our focus is preparation of operating and maintenance documentation, development of documentation concepts and provision of technical trainings. We enjoy what we’re doing – commitment, fun and enthusiasm are very important to us. To ensure that our customers can rely on a high level of dedication, we promote an open, friendly and appreciative corporate culture and constantly enhance our technical competence. This is our basis for employee and customer satisfaction.
The “team” is part of the company name and our key to success: Every team member adds to the success by contributing their different skills. Yet, we all share the same passion for technology. We communicate directly and openly – among ourselves and with our customers. The hierarchy is flat and not acted out. We foster a working atmosphere that allows for concentration, creativity and personal freedom. We make consistent use of advanced technologies at the workplace – without any fear of contact: for a professional and straightforward contact with our customers at all times. We consistently meet our customers’ requirements and makes their projects our own.

Our employees do not only share the passion for technology but also in-depth professional experience. Our editorial team consists of engineers and technicians who can bank on vast experience in the fields of technical documentation and maintenance of rail vehicles. Our certified technical editors and specialists in graphic design and information technology round off our company’s profile. We promote personal communication and therefore keep a steady dialogue among ourselves and with our customers. In doing so, we attach great importance to an affable and straightforward contact. We consider ourselves specialists in our area of expertise: railway transportation technology. This is where we offer high-quality services. We do not deliver any standardised products or constantly recurring services of the same kind. For us, quality is measured by the satisfaction of our various customers. Focussing on the customer and the project is the basis for a successful outcome. A “one fits all” approach is not our tool of choice. We listen, follow and think ahead making your questions and problems our own. We offer an extensive range of experience and competence. This allows us to precisely respond to the specific requirements of different customers.

Our expertise is based on the team’s excellent skills and the longstanding experience gained in projects carried out with our industrial customers from Europe and abroad. We are capable of quite a lot, yet with them, we are even stronger: Our network of freelancers and partner companies supports us with additional skills and capacities if needed.
