Company Updates

  • Honored to be nominated for four of Powderkeg's Breakout Tech Culture Awards! We are thankful for our team and leadership for making Flexware a great place to work!

  • Flexware started in 1996 as Flexware Integration. In 2001 we changed the name to Flexware Innovation and created the tagline “Cultivating Manufacturing Success” and adopted the “wheat” as our logo. This logo served us well for the last 18 years, but it has been retired. In April 2019, we just launched our new brand and new logo. Our newly redefined purpose of “unleashing the potential of technology, freeing people to focus on what’s next” is motivating us in our 3rd decade of service to our customers. Our new logo is meant to convey stability, technology, and trajectory as we help our customers move forward. We hope you enjoy the fun video as we decommissioned the wheat for the last time.

What exactly is a FlexDog? Let us explain.

A FlexDog is the most unique and rare of all manufacturing engineers. It’s a certain breed of engineer that is highly sought after by OEMs nationwide. It’s an engineer that lives and breathes technology and loves to problem solve, yet has an innate drive to help people. He or she always does their best and humbly serves others.
