Dutch process optimisation consultancy group CelSian Glass & Solar has entered into a global process measurement partnership with SGS.

SGS is a global inspection, verification, testing and certification company, and recognised as the global benchmark for quality and integrity.

It has more than 97,000 employees and operates a network of more than 2,600 offices and laboratories around the world.

Through this partnership CelSian can rely on SGS’ operational capacity around the world for process measurements, while SGS has taken over the emission measurement activities from CelSian in The Netherlands.

“This is a win-win for both parties involved”, said Business Manager Marc van Ryckeghem of SGS. “We expand our emission business in the Netherlands into the glass industry that was dominated by CelSian for a very long time”.

Harmen Kielstra, CelSian's Managing Director, said: “CelSian is very pleased with the partnership, as it connects CelSian knowledge and expertise with the global scope and reach of SGS. It means we can serve our customers better and faster around the world.

"Process measurement execution will be done by the experts from SGS anywhere in the world, whereas the data analysis and reporting remain the key tasks of CelSian in this cooperation.”

“It is an important step in the development of CelSian, with an increasing focus on software, training and R&D dedicated to the glass industry”.
