About ProNES

Company Profile

ProNES – Corporate Development

In 1998, Jochen Weber founded his engineering office for automation & software and initially realised automation projects in a broad spectrum. In 2002, the office is transformed into ProNES automation GmbH (limited liability company) and Jochen Weber becomes the company’s managing director.

However, at an early stage we have specialised in solutions for measurement technology and quality assurance. In more than 250 projects we have acquired our unique know-how. This enables us to develop complex measurement solutions at any time, to integrate them seamlessly into comprehensive automation systems, to plan projects in a customer-oriented and professional manner as well as to implement them transparently. Our solutions convince through performance and reliability.

The numerous functions in our standardised PIQ.platform libraries allow an effective and quick realisation of our solutions. We supplement the tried and tested software modules by purpose-made developments and customer-oriented services, depending on the requirement profile.

Our qualified team of 30 employees takes care of the indispensable service portfolio.

“The customer is always at the focus of our activities. Solving our customers’ tasks in such a way that the result always reflects the specific requirements and wishes is the framework within which we operate. Our customers benefit from our experience and the know-how of our network of experts and competent partners.”

Jochen Weber, Managing Director

    Our overall competence results from the combination of the expertise of our employees. We motivate our employees to participate regularly in training courses and workshops.

    Constructive exchange to implement practice-oriented projects is paramount in the always collaborative work with our business partners. Without mutual trust, we cannot conceive a high-performance collaboration with our partners and within our team.

  • Respekt

    For us, respect forms the basis of a healthy company culture. In all our activities we comply with the moral and ethical principles of our society. In all our technical ideas and innovations, we pay particular attention to their suitability within the context of fundamental social values. It is important to us that we work together with the due respect and appreciation for one another, regardless of the ethnic origin, educational background, or the personality of the people concerned.

  • Nachhaltigkeit
  • Sustainability
    We feel that it is our obligation to contribute to the maintenance of the natural resources for future generations. We are especially concerned that during our projects we pay attention to the sustainability of the technologies and components used. For a peaceful coexistence, it is out of question for us that the production and sale of any weapon systems are to be rejected. Therefore, we do not work on projects or orders that are directly related to the production of weapons.
