About Us: Elke Stangl and Sigi Proyer
Elke Stangl and Sigi Proyer have studied Applied Physics in the 1990s and worked together in R&D - optimizing superconducting thin films and stainless steel materials. Automation of experimental setups and programming of control units were integral part of research projects.
At the end of the 1990s they transitioned to careers in IT consulting and management. Focus: IT security and IT in pharmaceutical manufacturing. Based on these experiences punktwissen Proyer & Stangl OG was founded in 2005.
Having developed and built and ice storage powered heat pump system in 2012, punktwissen has also worked as an engineering consultancy. Specialties: Heat pump systems with uncommon heat sources, programming control systems for heating/solar systems.

Travelling Like Spam Poetry (2015-08-01)
How spam poetry actually started - doing it in real-live instead of writing it. In 2005 The Chief Engineer and I visited more than 100 villages whose names started with letter Z. This trip finally became our company's Founding Myth.
Being Creative with What Is Available (2014-11-27)
Build something from anything and to use whatever tool is at hand! Refers to anything we ever did or built - in the physics lab, as software developers, on designing the heat pump system.
