20.10.2015 "25 years KNX Association"

TAPKO congratulates to the anniversary

KNX today is the global standard for building automation. Back when everything started, we spoke of EIB and accordingly the Organization existing then was called EIBA. Much has changed since. TAPKO followed along with every step of today’s successful and globally active KNX Association and some steps were even influenced by Tapko!

The two managing directors of TAPKO Technologies GmbH, Mr. Petar Tomic and Mr. Klaus Adler , were employed at a large building automation  manufacturer  prior to the establishment of their  own company -  so they were familiar from the beginning with building automation with EIB/KNX. Both put considerable expertise into the development of EIB and helped to “baptise” KNX.

TAPKO today offers consulting, KNX development of software and hardware, production in Europe and an accredited KNX Test Lab. Their own range of products is extensive and already enhanced by the pioneering wireless technology. As a longtime member of the KNX Association, TAPKO Technologies wishes: Happy Birthday KNX!

06.01.2015 Rise by Experience

Tapko celebrate their 15th anniversary in October – at the same time as Dubai’s landmark, the Burj Al Arab

The “Burj” serves as a symbol for the town Dubai and its rocketing rise and it is hard to believe that this famous building already celebrated its 15th anniversary. At the same time, Regensburg’s company TAPKO could celebrate its 15th, looking back on 15 years of success.

Though TAPKO Technologies may not have the symbolic meaning of the “Burj”, the team of both the  CEOs Petar Tomic and Klaus Adler is visibly proud of their history of achievements in the realm of building automation, having supplied development work for  world-famous brands as well as  complete high-tech products and components. As becomes a member of this fast-progressing branch, the company has only very briefly looked back before orienting towards the future ahead. “Our branch is driven by ever new ideas”, claims Petar Tomic. Already, with the New Year coming up, they’re deep into new developments  - as technology suppliers as well as for proprietary developments such as RF+ (radiofreqency technology).
