Answers to Frequently Asked Questions


Who are you guys and what happend to Amertap?

Amertap, member of the TAPROGGE Group, was founded in 1957 as the first subsidiary of Taprogge GmbH.

It was a blend of two words "America" & "Taprogge".Amertap Logo

Over time, other subsidiaries opened in other countries with distinct names (like Japan Taprogge, United Kingdom Taprogge, France Taprogge, Iberica Taprogge, etc...).

As sometimes happens with any major company expanding worldwide, TAPROGGE's name recognition started losing its identity.

To align all the subsidiaries with the parent company, it was decided to make the TAPROGGE name prominent.  So Amertap became Taprogge America Corporation, Japan Taprogge became Taprogge Japan, United Kingdom Taprogge became Taprogge U.K., and so on...

We service and support all the TAPROGGE systems in our territory and appreciate your confidence in us over the years.
