Good things come from Germany, and in the case of RTT USA it's jobs.
Even though the graphics software company was born in Germany in 1999 it expanded to Royal Oak in 2006. And it has been steadily growing ever since. The company had 15 employees in the Royal Oak office last year and has grown to 25 today. It has plans to hire another 10-15 people this year.
Those new jobs will be range from design consultants to business development managers. The Royal Oak office can hold up to 55 employees.
RTT USA originally set up shop in California in 2005 and decided to expand to Metro Detroit a year later to be closer to the auto industry. Its graphics technology lets designers modify product design with software instead of real-life prototypes.
It's been doing a good job, expanding its client list to include General Motors, Audi and Volkswagen.
