TehnoINSTRUMENT IMPEX SRL has been present in Romania since May 1997, with an operational focus on analytical process and laboratory equipment.
The entry on the environmental quality monitoring equipment market was made in 1999, by strengthening the partnership with ECM ECO Monitoring, an US based company in Slovakia.
The transition from the sale of equipment to the sale of solutions was achieved in 2000, the year when the first continuous emission monitoring system was delivered.
In 2001, the company delivers to PETROM the first mobile laboratory to monitor the quality of environmental factors (air, water, soil).
The year 2002 brought to the company the participation with OPSIS Sweden in the Phare project “Cross Border Air Monitoring Quality” Romania – Bulgaria.
TehnoINSTRUMENT’s first large-scale project was carried out in 2003 with ECM ECO Monitoring and consisted of delivering 25 emission monitoring systems and an mobile laboratory to the former Sidex Galati (current ArcelorMittal Galati).
Since 2003, TehnoINSTRUMENT has begun a series of collaborations with major players in the cement industry. The first of these was Holcim, which acquired four in-situ DOAS in-situ emissions monitoring systems for the three Holcim plants at that time. In 2005-2006, Lafarge (now CRH Romania SA) and Carpatcement Heidelberg followed in 2007-2008.
The year 2006 marked the beginning of the construction of a new headquarters of the company, in Ploieşti, on Laboratorului Street no. 31 B.
