CZL Tilburg


In September 2006, Tini van Laarhoven, Director of the galvanization company CZL Tilburg, lived a real nightmare. A devastating fire destroyed almost completely his plant. His whole installation was completely destroyed or damaged. ‘You suddenly realize how fragile you are and how you depend of the people that can and want to help you.’


CZL does the service treatment of critical and complex parts for e.g. tooling for the semi-conductors industry, for aeronautic industry, for petrochemical industry and for general machine makers. It protects products against corrosion: a specific application.


Van Laarhoven: ‘Not only we had a big problem after the fire, but also our customers. Happily we could react quickly, this also thanks to our suppliers. Hellas rectifiers repaired immediately the damaged rectifiers and supplied us quickly with new ones. This helped us to change a rented hall into a galvanization company within 6 weeks. Their support reinforced our already strong relationship. The faith was already big because of the strong in-house knowledge within hellas. They are able to look deep into our processes and to optimize our rectifiers following to this information. If we have a problem, they find the fitting solution. They are flexible and react quickly on our questions. We have experienced this again after the fire of 2006.’
