历史沿革 History

Certilas 是由Peter Gerritsen 在1993春季创建的。作为全面的合作伙伴,起初先在自己家里销售了3年产自德国Metallogen的主要用于机械设备设备维修的特种焊材,由于没有足够的仓储空间,迫使Certilas搬迁到了位于荷兰Stieltjesweg in Arnhem的商务中心。

随着设备维修市场需求不断增长,为满足这一要求,CERTILAS技术中心于2001年设立。除了这一新部门之外,公司也搬迁到了现在位于荷兰的Elst,并此进一步促进CERTILAS品牌的成长。 这是通过两种不同途径实现的, 销售收入的增长 (年均约30-50% ) ,同时与与市场上的其它大伙伴合作,例如SMC的镍基合金产品和德国Drahtzug Stein无缝药芯焊丝(Benelux).







结果是与2011年秋天我们隆重推出了非常先进的、可以在智能手机运行的焊接计算商用软件 ‘App’: all welding calculations 。 除此之外,CERTILAS还研创了金属听装的焊条以及满足-60°C冲击要求的海洋工程装备业适用的焊条。

Certilas was founded by Peter Gerritsen as a general partnership in the spring of 1993. Starting selling special electrodes from Metallogen Germany for mainly maintenance and repair for the first 3 years from home, the lack of storage space for welding material forced Certilas to move to a business property at the Stieltjesweg in Arnhem, the Netherlands.

The market showed an increasing demand for maintenance and repair of machines. To meet this requirement, Certilas Technical Service was established in 2001. Apart from a new department, this also led to the company’s move to its present location in the town of Elst (the Netherlands). From this set-up we worked on further growing the Certilas brand. This was achieved by using two different avenues: revenue growth (at the time an increase of 30-50% per year) and entering collaborations with bigger market parties, Special Metals (previously Inco Alloys) became a partner in the nickel alloys product group and we started collaboration with Drahtzug Stein for the marketing and sales of seamless flux-cored wires (Benelux).

The logical result of these developments was the expansion of the inside sales service. This allowed us to pay more attention to service, advice and export and paved the way to launch our own brand in 2007: CEWELD©.

By doing this, we created the perfect conditions for Certilas to live up to its mission and vision in daily practice: independently delivering goods of the highest quality under CEWELD® brand with the best service.

2008: the best year in Certilas’ history.

After having created a strong brand name for itself in the offshore business, it was decided CEWELD© should take the next logical step: positioning itself as an ‘A-brand’.

Again the number of customers and transactions increased, so we needed to take a closer look at our internal logistics. Against the prevailing business spirit during the global economic crisis, Ceweld decided to invest in distributing bulk articles using an automated warehousing system. Combining these with shuttle cases and order pickers, Certilas again proved to make a difference due to its innovative character.

The tough market in 2010 made the board of directors decide to review the entire operational side of the company. Certilas once again focused on its core business: innovations, highest quality, best service. This led to the introduction of the CEWELD© Select Dealer formula. The result is a structured work environment, allowing us to even better accommodate to our customers’ wishes and to cooperate with them to find innovative solutions for the daily welding practice.

Testament to all this is the launch in the fall of 2011 of a very sophisticated ‘App’: all welding calculations available on your own smartphone for Apple and Android. In addition to this, Certilas developed an innovative and new reclosable tin packing for welding electrodes and three new electrodes for the offshore market approved down to -60ºC.
