Peak efficiency.

Plant engineering. Automation. Robotics.

We offer integrated solutions and turnkey plants for demanding process technology. Our highly automated and connected complete systems are among the best in the world.

A down-to-earth company with lofty goals

From A to Z, we design and build turnkey process plants, before upgrading them with our own automation solutions and process control systems. We follow up with long-term service to make sure that the plants remain available and productive long into the future.

Philosophy and unique selling points

Protecting investments with our own developments

Our customers can have peace of mind that their investment is safe. We offer a 10-year guarantee on our controllers and a 20-year guarantee on replacement parts.

System developers and integrators

Unlike many of our competitors, we not only integrate existing software, but also develop our own new software programs and modules. This is one reason why our systems achieve above-average process efficiency.

Collaborative innovations

Our system developers stay in close contact with customer specialists. Many of our specific solutions are the result of this collaborative development. Being able to access this quickly and directly gives customers a competitive advantage.

Other important benefits for customers

We offer flexible, modular and customised systems that can be operated intuitively and reliably. We react quickly and pragmatically, without getting bogged down in bureaucracy. We also make communication easy by giving you the same JAG contact partner for all your needs and wishes.
