About PA

Since 1986 Process Automation Solutions provides complete automation solutions for the process and manufacturing industry. The focus of our activities in industrial automation includes the design of control and process-control systems and the vertical integration of these systems into the overall corporate process. This deep expertise in the integration of operational technology (OT) is the basis of our success.


We help transitioning manufacturing systems into the future


Today, our customers face the next phase of digitalization. To increase their operational performance and utilize the newest digital innovations, they have to connect their physical manufacturing with the cloud. PA is closing the gap between IT and OT, because integration has always been in our DNA and we have been system-independent since our beginnings. IIoT, Industry 4.0 or the Smart Factory – we are the right partner when it comes to digitizing operations.


PA stands for a unique combination of expertise in automation and digitalization


Based on our exhaustive expertise in industrial automation, we’ve expanded our know-how in recent years in the areas of process optimization and digitalization with the acquisition of the companies Advanced Applications, ARGUS, BLSG, CIM, HSG, Industrial Automation Partners, Inimco, IPCOS, ITACA, Odyssey, and Yazzoom. The combination of industry knowledge, automation expertise and analytical know-how in a groundbreaking platform makes PA unique and the partner of choice for industry leaders.
