How Gasmet Went Around the World in 30 Years

Oct 08 2019 Read 316 Times

Next year marks Gasmet’s 30th anniversary, and as we are kicking off the last quarter of the year, we thought now would be a good time to stop and reminisce the important work that we do. In this article, we share our thoughts on how and why we became the world-leading company in manufacturing and distributing reliable and robust gas analysers and emission monitoring systems. It has been an eventful journey around the world, powered by our three main values of improving air quality, protecting the environment and promoting work safety.

How did a small company from Finland manage to grow into a global supplier and manufacturer of gas analysis solutions with personnel of over 100 people? According to the Gasmet CEO, Mikko Ahro, our main asset is the comprehensive ownership of our value chain, which ranges from R&D and design and extends to after-sales services. Naturally, the value chain includes assembly and testing plus sales and marketing.

Ahro emphasizes that all critical assembly and design of the Gasmet products is done in-house. Gasmet owns the complete value chain and is therefore not dependent of any outsourced parts of technology or know-how. From engineering to manufacturing and marketing with a global presence, it’s 100% Gasmet’s own DNA.

A lot has happened within the past three decades and Gasmet has grown to be a globally recognized player in the field of gas analysers. We want to be where environment and safety matter and our mission is to provide customers worldwide with innovative, customer-driven and reliable gas analysis solutions. Our main values are:

  1. 1. Improving air quality

We aim at more accurate emissions measurements, allowing regulators and operators around the world control the emissions based on real emission values. 

  1. 2. Protecting the environment

The impact we want to make is to understand natural sources and sinks of greenhouse gases (GHGs), and for example, carbon cycle and its role in biofuel farming better. We want actual net reductions on GHG, which are based on real facts and science instead of green wash or hidden agendas. 

  1. 3. Promoting work safety

With the help of our solutions, we want to improve the occupational safety of, for example, cargo operators who are at risk of being exposed to toxic gases in containers.

These values have been our driving forces throughout the decades. We want to gain real, factual improvements, which are made possible by accurate measurements.

The current business quarter will bring about exciting news and additions to our product offering, such as dioxin monitoring system. We are entering our 30th year as a truly innovative action leader that contributes, for example, to better air quality and environmental protection.

We are proud to help research to find solutions to mitigate the climate change, enable industrial operators to comply with their local and international emission limits and promote the occupational well-being of those who deal with hazardous gases at work.
