    Benefits to you

    Short delivery times

    We do not hand over your tank to others. Therefore, our manufacturing time budget allows for tight scheduling of construction and expansion measures for your production plant.

    The quality is right

    Our precision of manufacture and processing becomes evident when looking at the surfaces. Our certificates are the best prove when you can tell no more difference with the naked eye.

    Customised installation

    Highest precision is our standard for the inclusion of allocated connections of the peripherals all around the tank.

    Pressure tank according to standard regulations

    Our up-to-date manufacturing and inspection methods also qualify us for the manufacture of pressure tanks. Our own projects such as the brewing business prove this at its best.

    Experience in process technology

    Thanks to our profound technological and process-related knowledge, we are very well aware of your demands placed on tanks, and we can provide support in selecting the appropriate materials, geometries and designs.
