Who we are

Our story

Our dynamic team, founded by two friends, Florian Ruess and Dr. Benjamin Braun, continues to grow each year, alongside our expanding list of accomplishments. From humble beginnings as a small consulting firm, we have since become a prime contractor for the Lunar Gateway Habitation module internal secondary structures and are constantly striving to move forward.

Based in Berlin, Germany, we pride ourselves on delivering products and services that embody German engineering quality to clients worldwide. Our facility is certified with AS 9100/ISO 9001, and all our products are made in Europe. We work with a broad range of clients, from institutional and corporate to SMEs and New Space companies, offering flexibility and attractive cost structures to ensure optimal results and accessibility for everyone.

At Space Structures, our primary expertise and passion lie in creating structures specifically for space application.

Since our establishment in 2011, we have rapidly expanded our knowledge and capabilities, covering a wide range of industry segments, from engineering know-how to structural solutions. In 2016, we achieved a significant milestone by completing our first project in orbit, and since then, our orbit heritage includes more than 200 missions.
