Message from the General Manager, Toon Streppel

Dear Visitor,

Thank you for visiting our website.

Our company was founded in 1985 by the Laurier family. Our headquarters and R&D/manufacturing/engineering facilities are located on the industrial park “De Prijkels” of the cities of Deinze and Nazareth in Belgium. Currently, we have direct market access channels in 120+ countries.

Our company is about 30 minutes driving from the European Capital, Brussels, and 40 minutes from the second largest petrochemical harbor in the world, Antwerpen, and 2 hours from Paris, France.

Our credo: “In business to serve you” is gaining more and more importance, in this interconnected world, where our world is one big village. Therefore should you have any comment or query about our company, please do not hesitate to contact us. We will amaze you with our feedback within 48 hours. If not, please do not hesitate to reach out to me directly at t.streppel (at) applitek.com

Thanks to you all, we were able to celebrate AppliTek’s 30th birthday back in 2015. Also, 2016 was remarkable in that respect that we were the first company worldwide that got certified ISO 9001-2015. In 2017, finally, we were acquired by Hach company.

“I am proud of what we have accomplished at AppliTek, starting with my father and mother in 1985, and continuing through this year,” said former AppliTek President and CEO David Laurier. “I am thrilled to have AppliTek join Hach, as they are an ideal partner to help us scale globally and to continue to invest in our technology. This is a great opportunity for AppliTek employees to join an industry leader, as I’m confident Hach will build on the recent momentum for years to come.”

Last but not least, I would like to thank herewith all our stakeholders, specially our dedicated team, our sales partners, vendors and our customers for their motivation, dedication and confidence in AppliTek in the last 30+ years.

Sincerely yours,

 

Toon Streppel
