More than 30 years of successful business
Optimus Instruments was founded in 1987, located in Temse (near Antwerp). We started 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.
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 our biggest assets.
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.
2007 marks the launch of the French office in Caen, an independent sales company focussing on reactor systems and thermoregulation in the pharmaceutical industry.
