More than 25 years of successful business
Optimus Instruments is a Belgian company founded in 1987. A sales company focussing on the petrochemical laboratories and gas detection in industrial environments. In 1988 Optimus Instruments obtained the distributorship of Herzog and Huber, still our two most important brands, and started a service department.
After 10 years of successful local business, it was time to discover international areas. in 1998 Optimus Instrument founded a second office in Rotterdam, focussing on service for the local companies. With two strategically positioned offices, the engineers never needed to travel far for an intervention. Still one of the biggest assets for Optimus.
2006 was the launch of European Lab Services (ELS), an independent service company for laboratory instruments. All sales activity and technical support was now the business of Optimus, ELS takes care of the after-sales customer service.
One year later, 2007, is one of the most important years for the Optimus Holding. It was the launch of the French office, an independent office focussing on the pharmaceutical industry with reactor systems. This office is still lead by Loïc Bouteloup. Meanwhile in the Benelux, ELS was granted its ISO 17025 accreditation for calibration of thermometers and the verification of petroleum analyzers. We are proud to tell that we were the first and still the only company offering internationally recognized on-site verification of petroleum analyzers. Another great asset for our service.
In 2011, the French office became an independent company named Optimus France. In the Benelux, new markets were searched and activities extended. Optimus Instruments not only focusses on the Petrochemical industries anymore but also supplies quality instruments and service for chemical, pharmaceutical and later bio-chemical industry.
2014, The great experience of our France office concerning laboratory reactor systems was shared with the Belgian office. Optimus Instruments became exclusive distributor of the Chemglass laboratory reactors and offers ready to use complete thermoregulated glass reactor systems.
Optimus Instruments is commited to provide quality products and services to all its customers by integrating highest professionalism and quality considerations in every aspect of our operations by implementing and maintaining an internally recognized management system based on ISO 9001 and ISO/IEC 17025 standards.
