Founded in 1996, MAC Solutions specialise in helping customers select and source appropriate systems to leverage their plant control and automation systems. Our solutions collect data securely from these systems and provide analytical and visualisation tools for production, maintenance and business planning. MAC Solutions HQ is located in Redditch, UK with our European office based in Paris, France.
Our development centre in Chesterfield houses our rapidly growing Alarm Management team. The office is the base for development of ProcessVue, our leading Alarm Management Software Suite and our consulting staff who specialise in delivering Alarm Rationalisation Projects.
Our teams’ expertise in Alarm Management spans back over 30 years with the first Printer Replacement package known as IMAC. This very successful application was widely used in control rooms across many business sectors including Power Generation and Oil & Gas. The knowledge gained from this success lead to the development of our next generation of Alarm Management software called ProcessVue, launched in 2010 ProcessVue is now the market leading Alarm Management Suite.
