The company VPS s.r.o. was founded in January 1994. Each of us is university graduated with long-term practice in industrial processes.
At the beginning of its activity, VPS s.r.o. received an offer from Motorola Inc. to provide technical consultancy services. We have participated in projects of technology and production lines transfers into Central Europe. A part of our services was development and accomplishment of training programs for engineers in the area of manufacturing, technology, design and quality of semiconductor devices. Besides the experience from manufacturing sites in Korea, Malaysia, France, Mexico, Great Britain and U.S.A., we took part in a series of Motorola University educational courses. Two of us became certified Motorola University instructors.
In 1995, VPS, s.r.o., has started the contracted cooperation with quality system certification body TÜV NORD s.r.o. Bratislava.

The service for Motorola has been expanded to the projects of improvement and optimization of manufacturing processes in their plants in Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia. An extent of services has been further expanded by development of custom-tailored software (particularly in Microsoft Excel applications).

Before expanding of Six Sigma to Lean Six Sigma, we provided them with consultancy in the area of industrial engineering, particularly capacity models and models of cycle time control.
