Pedak are all over the world. That`s not surprising, because Pedak is the expert in measuring, recording and displaying. Knowledge is power. With the right information you can make the right decisions. And the right information you get with the right equipment. `What we do at Pedak is so much more than supplying measuring instruments,` says director Roland Vossen. `We find a measurement solution for the question of our customer. By exactly analyzing what the customer wants to measure, we can come with a tailored advice. We not only supply the equipment, but also take care of the maintenance and calibration. If there is no standard equipment available for a given problem, we have the expertise to develop a device ourselves. Like this we ensure our customers have exactly the solution they need.` From Antarctica to Africa. Measuring instruments of Pedak are all over the world. This is not surprising, because Pedak is expert in measuring, recording and displaying.
Fresh classes and productive greenhouses
In schools CO2 meters of Pedak make sure there can be worked in a fresh indoor climate. If there is too much CO2 in the air, the teacher gets a signal that ventilation is needed. At the dish it's guaranteed to find something on your plate that is produced using the measurement techniques of Pedak.
Your tomato was able to grow in the ideal greenhouse climate with the right temperature and humidity. The shelf life of the cookie with the coffee is determined after measurements with Pedak equipment. And if you take a shower after a game of football a temperature meter of Pedak probably prevents you for becoming infected with Legionella. If you end up in the hospital, you can also rest assured. Pedak equipment monitores the climate so no contamination can occur. A safe idea for the patient, but also for the staff!
Finding the right measurement solutions is never boring. Roland: 'Boring? Never! The questions we get are surprising again and again', says Roland Vossen. 'Delft University wanted to measure climate change. We delivered weather stations which are stationed in Africa. Also on the South Pole our meters are present. NASA wanted to measure the climate in a test laboratory and this question came to us. That's cool!'
'All measurement questions answered by our knowledge and experience.'
Pedak provides measurement solutions to companies and institutions with a measurement question. A solution is only good enough if it fits perfectly to the measurement question. The Pedak staff is ready to answer any measurement question. And if a 'standard' solution is not sufficient, Pedak offers a customized solution. That's what Pedak stands for, for 40 years, with great experience, a wealth of knowledge and a lot of enthusiasm.
'Pedak as a connecting factor between customer, product / supplier and team, making Pedak THE term in measuring technology.'
These guidelines we have in mind every step we take:
- Pedak is a partner for the customer in answering all measurement questions
- Pedak has a strong base by long-term relationships with suppliers and products
- Pedak has a powerful team with knowledge, commitment, experience and enthusiasm
In 1975 Siegfried Peeters founded Pedak in the Dutch town Voorschoten. Siegfried Peeters started a sole proprietorship with some representations from Switzerland , Germany and Taiwan . Siegfried aims from the start to build good and long term relationships with reliable suppliers. The Swiss brand Novasina with instruments for water activity (Aw - value) and high quality indoor sensors is an example of a brand that is in the range of products from the beginning.
After a good start in Voorschoten Pedak moves to Egchel (a town in the north of Limburg). Pedak is thinking big, even in the first years Pedak takes place among the big names as a sole proprietorship by participating at the exhibition 'HET Instrument'. Even hostesses were empoyed for support during the exhibition in order to help all visitors. By visiting exhibitions throughout Europe Pedak remains aware of the latest developments.
Growth after 1996
The first empoyee is hired in 1996, Roland Vossen. Soon Roland becomes Siegfrieds successor and because of that, Pedak moves to the residence of Roland in Heythuysen. From an office unit in the backyard, and a business complex, Pedak moves to the beautiful private property in the industrial area Arenbos in Heythuysen in 2006.
Measurement solutions with knowledge, experience, commitment and enthusiasm
None of this is possible without a good and strong team. Meanwhile Pedak is grown to a team of eleven dedicated employees with a proud director, Roland Vossen. Still Pedak stands among the great as a relatively small player, not only in the Netherlands but also throughout Europe. As in 1975 Pedak thinks big and comes with solutions. Pedak is not taking the easiest way but aims for the perfect answer to a measurement question.
More than just meters
More than once we came to the conclusion that the perfect answer didn't exist (yet), resulting in a number of interesting developments that have been established using the knowledge and creativity of our team. For example: We have developed a book-measuring system which is used even in the library in the Vatican, we have developed a wireless measurement and recording system of temperature and indoor climate and we recently developed a cleanroom display for status and display of climate in operating rooms, laboratories and cleanrooms which even won a major novelties award.
