The origins of ECO-EXPORT date back to 1988, when Thomas Dillig, founder and owner, developed the first software programs on a PC. Backed up with an acoustic coupler and an Atari ST, he created more and more software to generate, filter and process data from various sources (such as the BTX or mailboxes) for specific applications.
10 years later: Thomas Dillig is given the task of establishing a sales representative network in the USA and in Latin America for his employer. The search process at that time consists mainly of reading through address books and cold calling people on the phone and not yet by using website information on the internet..
Another 7 years later, in 2005, Thomas Dillig returns from a two-year stay in China – with the original idea for ECO-EXPORT in mind. During this time in various cities in China he experienced firsthand that something was missing here for which German suppliers were already offering solutions – clean air, clean water, clean energy.
In China, there was a significant demand for German industrial products to solve these problems. Following consulting assignments for environmental technology, healthcare and consulting companies for the Chinese market, T. Dillig founded eco2business, the first online platform for companies seeking access to the Chinese environmental technology market.
However, it soon became clear that suppliers were not only struggling to build up their sales particularly in China, but increasingly asked for support for market access to other countries as well. The idea for ECO-EXPORT was born: “ECO-EXPORT brings products that are good for the world into the world!”
Our professional team consists of 23 freelancers. We cover eleven languages in addition to German, English, Chinese and Spanish.
Born in Erlangen in Southern Germany, Thomas created software projects since he was 16. After studying economics, spending several years abroad e.g. in China, USA, Australia and working in numerous sales positions, he founded eco2business which was renamed to ECO-EXPORT in 2016.
