B&R Industrial Automation BV is very proud of their first certified APROL partner in the Netherlands: IAS Industrial Automation. APROL is a powerful DCS system from B&R, which IAS sees as very promising. Thanks to growing demand from the end users’ market for APROL solutions, B&R can now offer a total solution to end users with IAS as a strategic APROL partner. IAS now has five certified APROL engineers.
“B&R greatly values this strategic partnership, as B&R does not implement projects with end users. The saying goes: shoemaker, stick to your last, or in other words – do what you’re good at. That’s why B&R focuses on developing, producing, supplying and supporting high-quality hardware and software solutions for industrial automation. This focus means the partnership works both ways. B&R supplies tried-and-tested hardware and software for machine, factory and process automation, including global support. IAS develops the APROL application software and implements and maintains this with customers. This partnership guarantees reliable and effective solutions for end users”, says Piet Tak, Managing Director of B&R Industrial Automation BV.
“APROL is a welcome expansion to our current product portfolio. With B&R APROL, we now have access to a system that fills the gap between traditional PLC-SCADA systems and the large DCS systems. APROL is a smart DCS package that comes with many features as standard, and is very attractively priced. It is also a scalable package, and its configuration can easily be expanded. In addition, APROL has already proven itself extensively in other countries, such as Germany and Austria, with customers such as the car manufacturer Audi and the brewer Veltins”, says Ron de Bruijn, Business Unit Manager at IAS Industrial Automation.
