AP Armaturen Proksch takes the next level towards innovation and efficiency.
In 2023 we successfully implemented our state-of-the-art ERP system from proAlpha! After intensive preparation and numerous integration tests, we can present the result of our hard work. This new system allows us to seamlessly integrate and automate our processes, enabling us to work even faster and more effectively. This marks a milestone for AP Armaturen Proksch and underlines our commitment to continuous development and excellence in our field.

Introduction of tablets and finger scanners/ring code readers
We equip our logistics with tablets and ring code lasers. This allows us to access all important information directly on site and update it in real time. This means our employees save time, are no longer dependent on a fixed workplace and have access to important information anywhere. Thanks to this sustainable solution, we also save paper and thus actively contribute to preserving the environment.
