Our History

Doruk Automation and Software Industry and Trade Inc. was founded in 1998 to develop digital tools, software and hardware in order for the industrial companies to manage their manufacturing operations in a faster, agile, high quality and more productive way.

It is the first technology company in Turkey to make R&D works regarding digitalization in industry.

Since its foundation in 1998, the company has been putting emphasis on developing closed cycle Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) Systems, which corresponds to a structure that adopts new decisions via receiving automatic feedbacks from the actual situation.

In line with this aim, Doruk Automation started its working life via developing one of the world’s first Programmable Data Terminals, PVT9801, as an R&D project supported by Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey’s (TÜBİTAK) Technology Monitoring and Evaluation Directorate (TİDEB), which is the former Technology and Innovation Grant Programs Directorate (TEYDEB), at a time when a similar project didn’t exist anywhere in the world, in 1998.

In 1999, the first manufacturing planning software that ensures automatic planning of manufacturing operations via using production data gathered from production automatically was brought to life as an R&D project found once again worthy of support by TÜBİTAK’s TİDEB. This was also commercialized via its application in industry.

While carrying out its first export to the Romanian Arctic factory, which it met during one of the Hannover CeBIT fairs that it regularly attends, in 2006, Doruk Automation started to be active in the international arena from this date forward.

Due to the advantages its Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) System ProVIEW/ProMANAGE, which it has been developing and implementing, provided to the industry, the company was selected as the Innovative SME of the Year by the Istanbul Chamber of Commerce (İTO) in 2008.

It has taken part in plenty of fairs in the field of manufacturing technologies in Germany, France, China, Canada and the United States as an exhibitor and turned its vision towards the international arena.

In 2017, the company started its expansion into the U.S. and founded its company called ProMANAGE Smart Manufacturing Solutions Corp. in Chicago. In line with these developments, it was included in the R&D partners of DMDII (Digital Manufacturing Design and Innovation Institute), which is a public/private institution founded with the aim to develop digital manufacturing concepts and technologies in the U.S. within the body of UILABS (University of Illinois Labs).

Doruk Automation’s U.S. branch has an office in the UILABS building and the company aims to make the office the center of its global R&D and expansion operations.
