History in a nutshell


The history of the PROSTER company began in 1985, thanks to the courage and determination of its founder, Wiesław Pukal. As Franciszek Małek – who still works in the company – recalls, Wiesław Pukal was a man full of ideas who made decisions quickly. When he worked at Browar Okocim, he offered to deal with the incorrect temperature on the pasteurizer when the relevant services could not cope with it. Wiesław did. Such situations repeated and it was probably them that allowed the founder of PROSTER to switch to his own company.

President of the company, Wiesław Pukal started his business at a time when it was neither popular nor well-regarded. The historic document “Permission to perform crafts” was issued on August 13, 1985. The activity was to concern electrical installations and electromechanics in the Tarnów Voivodeship. The name of the PROSTER company is composed of two elements – “PRO” from the word “simple” in Polish and “STER” from “control” and reflects the essence of its activity. Initially, the company had several employees who, together with the boss, performed work in the territory of the current Lesser Poland and Podkarpackie voivodeships. The employees had only a small car named “maluch” (Fiat 126p) and a renovated car named Żuk at their disposal, but the people worked solidly and with enthusiasm.

The period of economic transformation in Poland

The company’s development coincided with the period of economic transformation, during which many companies on the market were liquidated or simply went bankrupt. Running a business was associated with various types of risk, for example, there were many dishonest and insolvent contractors. This did not discourage the owner from fighting for his existence on the market. Due to the unfavorable economic situation on the domestic market, many companies were late in payments for services or goods.

Time passed and the transformation period brought favorable changes for private plants. EiAP PROSTER’s services were used primarily by Browar Okocim, but also by breweries in Grybów, Jędrzejów and Kraków. In 1996, the company also operated in the Masovian Voivodeship and had 13 employees. A significant increase in employment to 71 people took place in 1997, when PROSTER, as one of the first companies in Poland, started outsourcing maintenance in Browar Okocim. Over time, the company expanded its operations to the brewery in Żywiec. The main pillar of the company’s activity were installation, repair and maintenance services of electrical equipment, switchgear and control equipment, maintenance and renovation of technological lines. Thanks to this type of activity, the company experienced dynamic growth on a nationwide scale.

Foreign activities

The year 2003 turned out to be particularly important, when PROSTER completed its first foreign contracts – in Finland, Cuba and Asia (photos from Cuba below).

This resulted in an increase in the number of technical and office workers. On January 3, 2009, a new office was established at ul. Głowackiego 67 in Brzesko.

The following years saw the expansion of foreign projects – in 2008, the first contract took place in Africa (Tunisia). Employment at that time increased to 129 people. Subsequently, the contract in New Zealand was completed in 2011, and employment increased again to 142 people. 2013 – a contract in Brazil and China was made, and a year later in Japan. Then in 2017 the first contract in North America (Mexico) was performed.

It should be noted that the company’s foreign expansion did not happen just like that. The owner has been trying for almost 10 years to make German companies trust his work and entrust their projects to a company from Poland. It was not an easy or quick process, but it resulted not only in a large number of projects, but also the honorable title of preferred service provider for our clients.

Current development

The following years saw continued activity in foreign projects around the world – mainly the assembly of technological lines and electrical installations. In 2017, the Automation Department was also transformed into the Automation and Robotics Department and the creation of a mechanics department, complementing the company’s portfolio. In the same year, succession took place and Jacek Pukal became the president of the company. A year later, the Research and Development Department was established, whose task was to help create standard products that we would be able to offer at a better price and our high quality.

In 2023, the Controlling department was launched, which allows us to quickly respond to changing market needs and analyze data in an even more perfect way. This year also marked the beginning of a more intensive presence in Europe, as a branch of the company was opened in Austria at this time.

From the same year, we can boast of ISO 9001 certification granted by the global entity TUV. The certification concerns the quality management system in the field of “Design, production, assembly and service of electrical engineering, automation, robotics and industrial mechanics devices.”

The dynamically changing market allows us to maintain an appropriate pace of growth and operation, which is why our plans for the incoming years include, among others, the development and expansion of the mechanics department and the implementation of larger projects of robotic lines in close cooperation with our partners.
