Who and where are we?

YellowParts and CATpool are operated by:
CATpool d.o.o.
11.080 Beograd (Serbia)
hgn [at] catpool.com
(please replace the [at] by @, we are already getting more than 1.000 spams per day!)

We are a privately owned German software house run by its German owner and German management with God but without banks, venture capital or share holders.

Our German sister company was founded in 1993 in Germany and emigrated from Berlin to Slovakia in 1999, where we developed in Bratislava the EleFamily software products in co-operation with our main customers:
Messe Frankfurt GmbH on the Automechanika-CATpool project, a predecessor of our own CATpool, and the
Philips group of companies, main office in Eindhoven in Holland who are using Elestore, Elepub and EleFamily.

In early 2007 we have founded CATpool d.o.o. in Beograd to operate the YellowParts and CATpool portals while major parts of the software development remain in Bratislava and are done by our sister company, which also takes cares of support for the German countries for CATpool and YellowParts.

Why Serbia?

There are many good reasons and the low cost of labour is only one of them enabling us to deliver services like data capturing and others at very attractive costs. Another reason is in personal relations of our owner.

Serbia is the most underestimated country in Europe and the general public has a completely wrong perception of this very western country due to the manipulation by the media during the Balkan war. Let us make clear: we are on neither side regarding the Balkan conflicts, not only because foreigners can't understand them anyway but also because we don't condemn the people who had to suffer from a dictator like Slobodan Miloševic or otherwise one would have to condemn all USA citizens of today for that the Bush regime ("administration" in Orwell New Speech) has murdered multiple times more people in the Irak war alone than the former Serbian dictator.

Our recommendation: Before making a judgment, first go there, see, hear and only then make up your mind!
