The idea to start a company in laser cleaning arose in 2016, when co-founder Pieter Cretskens wanted to apply laser cleaning in his job at the time in the nuclear sector, but realised that there existed no service providing companing that could help him do this. He saw a big opportunity, and together with Emmanuel Flaam, an experienced marketeer and business strategist, they decided to go for it and they established Netalux on January 4, 2017. The first two years, Pieter and Emmanuel did everything themselves, they went to as many companies as possible to introduce them to laser cleaning. This was not an easy task, since laser cleaning wasn't very known at the time, and because they themselves still had to discover a lot about the technology. But they learned by working with the machine every day, and Pieter and Emmanuel kept on gathering knowledge about laser cleaning and the possibilities of this technology. Because they only offered laser cleaning as a cleaning technique, they were able to specialise in this technology.
Since 2019 Netalux has grown fast: the first employee was hired, and other employees soon followed. Netalux became a team of young, driven people who want to build a successful company together! In 2019 the decision was made to expand the company with two other branches besides Services, namely Products and the Netalux Academy. The fact that we combine these three departments enables us to offer the customer a complete package deal. Any customer can rely on us for a short assignment with laser cleaning, as well as for a laser cleaning machine or a training in laser cleaning. Netalux has the ambition to become the international leading company in laser cleaning!
