Why We’re Here

At Anneal, we believe that technology is a tool for people and organizations to shape the future. We believe in inclusion, transparency, and the power of collaboration. We believe in doing serious work but never taking yourself too seriously.

The Story Behind Our Name

Annealing is a process in metalsmithing where you heat metal to a certain temperature in order to improve its malleability. This technique aligns the molecular structure within the metal, softens the material, relieves internal stresses, and makes it possible to turn a raw chunk of metal into a work of art or beautiful piece of jewelry. Not only does the annealing process make metal easier to work with, but the end result is a stronger final product.

We at Anneal, Inc. do the same thing for our clients: We create conditions that help craft something new with minimal resistance and improved strength.
