PROKOSCH – Your Partner

60 years of experience and specialization


Founded in 1957 by Josef Prokosch, the company is today one of the leading manufacturers of special valves for demanding applications.

The company specializes in the design, manufacture and supply of manually and automatically operated valves for the conveying, storage and transport of solids, liquids, slurries and hazardous materials.

  • The 50s

    PROKOSCH - PUMPEN und ARMATUREN GmbH was founded on 01.07.1957 as a mechanical workshop for precision turned parts by Josef Prokosch in Odenheim. Initially, the company was engaged in the manufacture of parts for gearbox construction and general mechanical engineering.

  • The 60s

    PROKOSCH began developing and manufacturing centrifugal pumps as early as 1960. The expansion of the company made it necessary to move to new, larger factory buildings already in 1962. The production program was expanded step by step, which finally required a further extension of the buildings in 1970.

  • The 70s

    In 1973, the first pumps for disaster control were developed and the product range was expanded.

    PROKOSCH started with the production of shut-off valves for tank and silo vehicles.

  • The 80s

    The valve program was continuously expanded, so that by 1982 PROKOSCH had a complete manufacturing program of pumps for irrigation, sewage disposal, industry, disaster control, as well as a wide range of ball valves for the process industry and commercial vehicles.

  • The 90s

    It was already foreseeable at the end of the 80s that the market for pumps for residential applications would shift in favor of foreign manufacturers. Therefore, PROKOSCH decided to focus on the flow control sector while contintuing to market pumps from other well-known manufacturers in the field of pumps.

    As of 1995, PROKOSCH complemented its spectrum by developing and manufacturing pneumatic pinch valves for tank and silo applications.

  • 2000

    Continuous modernization of the machinery and optimization of internal processes as well as software solutions.

    PROKOSCH is now one of the leading manufacturers of shut-off valves for granulated and powdered media and now exports products worldwide.

  • 2010

    The supply chain is further expanded and our standards in terms of quality and security of supply are improved through selected national and international suppliers in conjunction with our extensive internal manufacturing capabilities.


    the product range is complemented with ADR approved ball valves for hazardous materials.


    a new chapter for the company begins at the end of the decade - on March 1, 2019, the company was strengthened as part of a succession plan, by a new owner, Mr. Heikki Hyttinen.

    Today, Team PROKOSCH is writing the next successful chapter in the company's history with solutions for demanding conveying applications.

  • 2020

    PROKOSCH introduces the PROKontrol product line. PROKontrol complements PROKOSCH valves with selected, proven and tested actuators and automation accessories.


    To digitalize operational processes, a digital twin, i.e. a virtual copy of the production environment, is introduced in cooperation with Process Genius from Finland.



    PROKOSCH receives ISO9001 certification for its quality management system

    Pandemy years

    Despite lockdowns and supply chain disruptions during and beyond the pandemic years, PROKOSCH remains a reliable partner for its customers.

    Turning the tide, post-pandemy

    The optimization of global supply chains has been stepped up in order to contain supply chain risks due to increasing geopolitical uncertainties and the impact of exorbitant increases in energy costs in the European Economic Area. PROKOSCH now sources input and raw materials from several continents.
