BACK TO BUSINESS AS USUAL AFTER CORONA PERIOD WITH INCREASED PRODUCTION CAPACITY
The strategic investments made at AP&S in recent years are having a reinforcing effect and offer you the following advantages:
In 2018, a second production plant with a total area of 1000 m² was built at our headquarters in Donaueschingen. With the newly created space, we were able to implement a holistic production system, increasing both the production depth and the production capacity. Modules for AP&S wet process equipment are manufactured in-house. Pilot and development projects also found their place here, so that modules and plants could be further developed according to market requirements. As of today, we can offer our customers attractive delivery times even for customer-specific solutions.
2. our wet process equipment is assembled in the production room under clean room conditions. Prior to delivery, the plants are rinsed with ultrapure water from the in-house high-performance water treatment plant and measured and qualified with optical particle counters (>0.1 µm) and samples for cation trace analyses (ICP-MS or GF-AAS). Fast start-up after delivery and high-quality results right from the start without lengthy rinsing cycles are the advantages this offers our customers.
As you can see, together you and we can draw on a variety of solutions and options to overcome even this unusually difficult time.
