Facultatieve Technologies (FT) has been building up an impressive pool of technical expertise, experience and international know-how since 1908. We have fitted more systems across the globe than any other manufacturer, with our brands including Dowson & Mason, Stellus, TABO INEX, Evans Universal, Evans Tabo Universal, FDI and ISI.

Incinerator Specialist Inc.

In 2004, leading US company Incinerator Specialist Inc. (founded in 1937) became a part of FT. Since then, FT The Americas has a modern production unit in Medina (Ohio), south of Cleveland.

Fours Delot International

In 2003, FT took over the operations of FDI Cremation and FDI Fumisterie in France. FDI (Fours Delot International) was established in 1908 and is a well-known name in the field of cremators, incinerators and their brickwork.

Evans Universal

Evans Universal was established in 1959 as a specialist in the field of design and construction of incineration equipment. Furnaces were supplied all over the world, from the parent company in Leeds in the UK. Evans Universal took over the DM TABO Ltd company (formerly Dowson & Mason) in 1987, and thus gained an important position as producer of cremators.

‘the Facultatieve Group’

1979 saw the bankruptcy of Ugnsbolaget TABO Incinerator AB from Sweden. A number of branches of the bankrupt company continued to supply the market, but then independently under the leadership of TABO France. In 1993, these companies were acquired by ‘the Facultatieve Group’, which has been constructing cremators since the nineties, and which incorporated INEX Milieutechniek, to form TABO INEX. After ‘the Facultatieve Group’ took over Evans Universal at the end of 1998, the year 1999 was dominated by the integration of both sets of experience and know-how in the field of furnace construction and flue gas treatment (filter systems), under a combined name which everyone would recognise – Evans Tabo Universal.

And once Research & Development, drawing departments, production facilities and Customer Care had been successfully merged, the company name FT (Facultatieve Technologies) was introduced in 2000 to create a clear link to parent company ‘the Facultatieve Group’.

Facultatieve Technologies is a technically driven organisation. A true knowledge centre. Our Design & Drawing office is full of specialists, many from academic backgrounds. Each and every one of them has impressive specialist knowledge and experience in the field of incineration technology. Here, technical issues are studied, drawings produced and international developments monitored. The range of expertise available is truly remarkable.

Facultatieve Technologies offers stability and continuity. There is continuing investment in the innovation of existing products and the development of new ones. Additionally, from our worldwide operations, we have insight into developments within the different markets. That advantage is put to good use in the regional markets where it puts us ahead of comparable companies whose work is restricted to a particular country.

As a member of 'the Facultatieve Group', Facultatieve Technologies benefits from an ethos founded in 1874. The network, relationships, knowledge, reputation and stability developed since that time are at our disposal. This gives us enormous strength. Within 'the Facultatieve Group', we not only construct furnaces but also operate a number of crematoria, including the first crematorium in the Netherlands which was built by 'the Facultatieve' in 1913. No competitor can rightfully claim the same.

Governments are nowadays setting increasingly strict requirements for the emissions from incineration and cremation equipment.

We have installed a large number of units all over the world which successfully comply with even the most stringent legislation. Fully automated furnaces with filter equipment and continuous emission monitoring are part of our standard scope of supply.
