History and Chronology

 

For understanding the world we need instruments to measure it.

 

TECFLUID S.A. have been designing and manufacturing flowmeters and level instrumentation products for more than 40 years. Our flow and level products can be found in a very wide and diverse range of process and manufacturing applications, and in some of the biggest companies in the world.

Our company started in January 1974 with the intention of meeting the growing demand of various industry sectors within Spain for flow metering and level measurement products that had previously only been available on an ex-import basis from other manufacturers. This demand gave us just the incentive we needed to put our design and manufacturing expertise to good use for founding Tecfluid.

The rapid growth of industries over the last years has enabled Tecfluid to introduce new product lines, and enhance old ones, to meet the growing needs of its customers and to further expand its aspirations in the export market.

During our journey we have learned a lot thanks to the input from our customers and we have consistently invested in resources, both human and technical, to improve our products and manufacturing processes, and to remain technically relevant and competitive in today's world. This is why Tecfluid products are comparable to those produced by the most prestigious international companies.

Our strengths lies in the constant innovation and customized manufacturing to suit the needs of each client. This has enabled us to adopt a progressive national and international expansion of our business, to the point where we currently have a presence in over 50 countries around the world; operating through qualified local distributors having a unique knowledge of their individual markets and customers.

Our design and manufacturing processes were awarded with ISO9001 QAS certification in 1996, and further enhanced with ATEX and Lloyd's Type Approval certifications that encompasses the entire design process, production, quality control and after sales service. In addition we have incorporated the HART ™ Communication protocol in our transmitters and all our products meet the European Pressure Equipment Directive (PED).

TECFLUID S.A. is at your service, offering a wide range of well engineered and quality products and service that have gained the company a wide acceptance aroud the world with our many national and international clients.

We appreciate the confidence and trust that our customers have placed in our products over the years, and assure them of our continued efforts to preserve that trust in the years ahead.
