A warehouse has been in operation at PTW since about 1958.
Electrical components, cables and even cognac, cola and beer were kept in stock ;-)
In 1989 PTW's former managing director Dr. E. Schüle has written a software program for the merchandise management system so that purchasing parts could be managed by means of a PC.
Meanwhile, this program has been replaced by a modern ERP system - in the detector assembly department, we have been working on Kanban places since 2008.
Alcoholic beverages have of course become a no go - times are changing!
