This December, Wunderkraut celebrates its 10 year anniversary. Over the past decade, Wunderkraut, a European Drupal leader, has lent its expertise to many clients including Thomas More, Carrefour, and Swift.

10 years ago, Wunderkraut, then Krimson, started in Belgium as small drupal development shop. From there, Wunderkraut has grown tremendously to become a technology leader in Europe. With over 30 employees in its Belgian offices, Wunderkraut now offers its clients services related to Concept & Design, Integration of Open Technologies, Hosting & Support.

In addition to serving the European market, Wunderkraut’s services now also reach places in North America and Asia. This is in part thanks to the strategic partnership formed with Appnovation, a Canadian based technology company.

Growth and expansion have not come without challenges; 10 years ago, many industry leaders were not ready for open technologies. Not only have they had not heard about Drupal, but internally, many systems were not ready to support such technology.

Nonetheless, Wunderkraut’s leaders didn’t give up and persevered.

My goal was always to work for big and important clients; I wanted to introduce open source software, specifically, Drupal, into the corporate world. This was my motivation to grow Krimson into what it is today.

Today, we can happily say that Wunderkraut has achieved and exceeded its goal. And, none of it could be possible without the support and trust from our employees, clients, partners, the Drupal community, and our families. Thank you all for a decade of excellence.
