About us

ATON was founded in 1991 by Ralf Uetze. We started our first automotive application in collaboration wit BOSCH Rexroth in Wolfsburg for a single station.

In the meantime we have customers all around the world. They’re all using NEXUM-BDE and NEXUM-Service Logistics to grant quality for their products and services.

We have Service points around the world to grant you the professional support when you need it.
Our vision:

Since many years, the company ATON GmbH deals successfully with the development of powerful programs in the divisions of service and warehouse logistics, as well as the real-time production data acquisition (PDA) in production and manufacturing environments.

Maximizing the benefit for our customers as part of a Partnership by using innovative ATON products is our guiding principle.

The increase in productivity, flexible manufacturing, ensuring quality standards in the production and reduction of rework costs and product recalls are goals of our development activities.

Usability of our programs and the practical implementation are our main contents of consistent customer orientation.
