Everyone knows that we design and manufacture porometers, but did you know that we also make and design other scientific instruments in-house? This has prompted us to change our company name from Porometer to Aptco Technologies, but rest assured, nothing changes for you! Allow us to introduce you further into our history and future:

Part of a bigger group

POROMETER has operated from the first beginning within a bigger group of companies, the Aptco Group. This has allowed us to grow at a very fast pace, as we could use many services provided by the group.

The name change now reflects our ambition to design and market more instruments made in-house, as well as the fact that we are part of a bigger group. Which we are proud of.

Aptco Technologies

Aptco Technologies is a manufacturer of measurement instruments and testing equipment for academic and industrial quality control and research labs.Development of hardware and software, instrument design, engineering and manufacturing of POROMETER and our metal coaters LUXOR are done in-house by our engineering department IB-FT in Germany.

Next to that, we design and manufacture high quality laboratory platen presses with Fontijne Presses (Delft, the Netherlands) and with ESCIL we are specialized in the manufacturing and marketing of consumables and accessories for the preparation of materialographic samples (Lyon, France).

What changes for POROMETER?

Nothing changes for POROMETER. The POROMETER brand is very strong and internationally recognized, we simply continue to place the brand name in the picture, not the company name. With that, we feel it is important, that everyone knows that POROMETER is a brand of Aptco Technologies, synonym for innovation powered by knowledge and technique.
