The company started operating from Minsk, Belarus, and gradually moved its business portfolio to the European Union. In 2016, Promwad opened an office in Vilnius, which is now the company's headquarters.[6][7] In 2021, the company delivery office was opened in Germany, and a development centre opened in Latvia.[8]


In 2011, Promwad became an official partner of Texas Instruments and joined the international network of design houses that develop electronics based on TI components and solutions.[5]
