Solutions PT Acquires MAC Solutions

SolutionsPT is the main trading entity of Pantek. The firm has worked with systems integrators to help companies navigate their systems from design through implementation for over 30 years.

The addition of MAC will help SolutionsPT address changes in the industrial operational technology market, much of which is driven by digitalization, according to the company.

MAC Solutions also brings its alarm management software to the table, which will help the Pantek group improve its asset performance management (APM) offering, according to the company. APM – which is an approach to help reduce unplanned downtime, decrease maintenance costs, and reduce environmental health & safety risks – is a big focus for MAC Solutions’ customers, according to the company.
