Bronkhorst UK is leader in Mass Flow Meter / Mass Flow Controller technology for gases and liquids, Pressure Controllers and Evaporation Systems.
Bronkhorst UK Limited is a wholly owned daughter company of Bronkhorst High-Tech BV of the Netherlands and offers local sales and after-sales support, calibration and service facilities, application engineering and user training courses. Product expertise includes gas and liquid mass flow measurement and control, pressure measurement and control, vapour production and control and primary calibration systems.
The UK Operation was established in 2002 and with quite outstanding success the result has been a 300% increase in both sales turn-over and staffing level. A specialist team has been formed that brings together Degree level education including flow theory, electronics, chemistry and materials engineering with time-served instrumentation placement and world-wide service application. This wealth of knowledge and experience is enhanced with business skills in contracts management and customer care to provide an overall service that is intended to be second to none. Above all else, however, is the commitment to a "can do" ethos that ensures our customers needs and expectations are always exceeded.
We want to provide excellent service to our customers, which is why we have been working on our quality management system for years. Since 2022 we can proudly say that our Bronkhorst UK operation is also ISO 9001 certified.
We develop and manufacture smart, sustainable and customer-specific low flow fluidics handling solutions from our vibrant base in Ruurlo in the Achterhoek region of the Netherlands. Our precise and reliable mass flow meters and controllers for liquids and gases find their way in laboratories, test-benches, machinery and a wide variety of industries.
Bronkhorst is a truly worldwide organisation with subsidiary offices for sales and support around the globe, including in the UK.
Bronkhorst High-Tech BV was founded in Vorden, a town in the east of the Netherlands, in 1981. The enterprise was set up by Teus Bruggeman, Wybren Jouwsma and two co-founders who spent only a few years with the company. The company name derives indirectly from the nearby, picturesque little village of Bronkhorst, which claims to be the smallest city in the Netherlands.
Following this pioneering phase, the family company experienced dramatic growth, managed by Bruggeman as commercial director and Jouwsma as technical director. In 1983, the company, which at that time had ten employees, relocated from Vorden to Ruurlo. The success that the young enterprise had booked was recognised in 1987 with the award of the King William I plaque. By this time, the company staff had already grown to over 30 employees.
The international growth continued and Bronkhorst has since set up subsidiary branches in Europe, Asia and American to provide worldwide support for its sales and services. Today, in 2021, the company has 15 branches and a total of some 600 employees.
Under the leadership of board members Henk Tappel, Robert Tiessink, Fergus van Beek and Alex Vossebeld, Bronkhorst has been able to continue its family business culture that the founders created. Employees show consideration and appreciation for each other and are given plenty of opportunity to further develop their careers. As a business partner, the company aims to foster long-term relationships, in which close collaboration with clients, suppliers and expertise centres results in innovative, high-quality products and solutions for metering and controlling flow and pressure.
It goes without saying that we are personally responsible for delivering the highest quality regarding our products and service. Customer satisfaction, innovation and quality of product and service have been the cornerstones of our success.
In 1992 we were certified to ISO 9001 (International Standard for Quality Management) with ISO 14001 (International Standard for Environmental Management) following three years later. Throughout the years our ongoing commitment was rewarded by certification to the most recent Quality Management System, currently ISO 9001:2015. In 2010, our Bronkhorst Calibration Centre was awarded ISO 17025 by the Dutch Accreditation Council (RvA), guaranteeing the accuracy of every gas flow calibration performed by our calibration laboratory. Currently our calibration laboratory is ISO/IEC 17025:2017 accredited.
With our extensive product range of gas and liquid flow meters and controllers we can offer both standard as well as customised solutions for various applications. Our measurement and control instruments are used worldwide in the healthcare industry, chemical laboratories, solar panel productions and many other fields of application.
The measuring range for our thermal mass flow meters/controllers can be selected between 0-0,7 mln/min and 0-11000 m3n/h for gases and 0-100 mg/h up to 0-1 kg/h for liquids. Bronkhorst’s Coriolis Mass Flow Meters and Controllers for gases and liquids have a measurement capability between 0-5 g/h and 0-600 kg/h. Furthermore we offer pressure transducers and controllers with a minimum range of 0-100 mbar and a maximum range of 0-400 bar. The most recent development is a series of ultrasonic liquid flow meters for flow rates from 2-100 ml/min up to approx. 1500 ml/min.
We focus not only on low-flow technology, but also on continuity and sharing our valuable in-house expertise because we firmly believe that by sharing that knowledge we can provide even better solutions to more complex issues, by working closely together with our partners and customers.
In addition to our own Research & Development and Engineering department, we have formed alliances with universities, research laboratories and other partners around the world. Not only our products have to be of the highest quality, but our service as well. And that is why we are 24/7 available for our customers to solve their complex issues with our experience, expertise and our ever-growing knowledge in the field of low flow fluidics handling technology.
