Hitma supply technical components and systems including gas detection products to industrial sectors such as oil and gas, pharmaceutical and food industries. In addition, to the supply they also have specialised service teams, who service both on-shore and off-shore. Although Hitma started through the sale of sewerage and manhole covers, moving to other products like instrumentation, filtration products and gas detection after the second World War, over these 96 years of trading, the Hitma department ‘Gasdetectie’ now specialise in detection of flammable and toxic gas. Providing their customers with the high-quality equipment and expert technical advice is at the front of the organisation.
