A short history of Bronkhorst®

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 set up subsidiary branches in Europe, Asia and America to provide worldwide support for its sales and services. Today, the company has 12 subsidiaries and a total of some 800 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, ISO 9001. In 2010, our Bronkhorst Calibration Centre was accredited by the Accreditation Council (scope K127), guaranteeing the accuracy of every gas flow calibration performed by our calibration laboratory.
