We are driven by our passion for searching the excellence in engineering that extends boundaries. We want to have a working environment where people can show their real passion, creativity and full potential while collaborating in a team.
We believe that there is always something that can be improved or made more flexible and intelligent or even more affordable. Providing such technologies is crucial for the constant progress of our society.
For the years of our existence we believe we have proved we can design complicated devices, develop state-of-the-art software for them and manufacture them with top quality. We have a proven platform for automation that is used in mission critical applications on several large industrial installations. Moreover, it has some unique features that are not provided by any other company in the world at the moment. Our power conversion devices start to be recognized as compact, flexible, intelligent and very reliable units.
We are proud of our team with a solid industry background and highly educated individuals.
