To expand the digital offering for process industries, AFRY acquires the Swedish company ProTAK.
ProTAK’s web-based software for production optimisation supports AFRY’s strategic ambition within digitalisation and sustainability as well as strengthens the AFRY Smart Site digital product portfolio further.
ProTAK’s web-based software is designed for production process continuous improvement and aim to increase production efficiency. The software measures the effectiveness of industrial plant’s machines to enable analysis and optimisation of the production processes. Together with AFRY’s production support software AFRY Pulse, this will improve the process industry customer production even further. AFRY and ProTAK see great potential to create new digital concepts and offerings to meet future needs.
“There is a strong demand for digital solutions within the process industry sector to reach sustainability goals by improved production efficiency. With this co-operation, we can jointly develop our offering further to support our customers even better in this constantly changing environment. We see great potential and synergies by combining the expertise and digital offering from both companies,” says David Andersson, Manager of Business Unit Digitalisation, AFRY Process Industries in Sweden.
“Becoming part of AFRY gives us better conditions to further develop our product and expand our offering also to global clients. We have developed the digital offering and are now ready to take the step to the next level. We look forward to the opportunities we can create together,” says Per Gannå, CEO at ProTAK.
ProTAK has 9 employees and annual sales of approximately MSEK 13. The company is currently mainly active in the Swedish market and will be consolidated in AFRY from January 2021.
AFRY is an international engineering, design and advisory company. We support our clients to progress in sustainability and digitalisation. We are 17,000 devoted experts within the fields of infrastructure, industry and energy, operating across the world to create sustainable solutions for future generations.
