In addition, Prevas has already gained lots of relevant experience from the development of own hardware modules and customized Linux operating systems such as open embedded.

“Prevas was founded in 1985 with the aim of helping customers grow through innovation. Since then, the company itself has experienced steady growth as a result of continuous innovation. This approach ties in perfectly with congatec’s own growth/strategy plans, and we look forward to joining forces with Prevas to bring innovative module solutions to our Nordic customer base,” comments Bernd Hacker, VP Sales & Marketing, congatec AG.

One way of addressing these issues is to use industrial computer modules, and design a customized solution that fits the customer’s specific needs. The combination of congatec as a leader in industrial computer modules and Prevas as a leading system integrator for embedded systems makes a strong offering to the industrial market. We at Prevas are very excited about this new partnership,” comments Jonas Mann, Senior Vice President, Prevas AB.
