OUR COMPANY HISTORY
1995 - STAXS® FOUNDED
STAXS® was founded in The Netherlands in 1995. The core focus of the company was the supply of cleanroom consumables to the pharmaceutical industry.
Following requests from customers for solutions that were not available on the market, the company started to develop new products. This has been the birth of the DOTCH® brand.
2000 - HEERENVEENIn Heerenveen, The Netherlands, a cleanroom facility was built to concentrate in-house the cleanroom processing of the DOTCH® products ensuring quality control by STAXS® own QA department.
2001 - PARTNERSHIPSTo cope with growing demand for the DOTCH® range of products a cooperation has been established with long-standing Chinese manufacturing partners. This partnership guarantees the control over the entire supply chain. The company is proud of this partnership that lasts for more than 20 years already.
2010 - STAXS®
STAXS® was created in 2010 through a merger of CCS and TAC.
These companies shared a common trait which lives on at STAXS®: a passion for developing and marketing new products that contribute to progress in cleanroom technology. Building on this heritage, today STAXS® focuses its innovation prowess on addressing the unmet needs of customers in Europe.
