Belzona Marks Countdown to 65th Anniversary
What began as the spark of an idea in the 1950’s, grew to ignite a global manufacturing company providing cutting-edge composite repair materials and protective coatings. Over the years, Belzona solutions have changed the way industry professionals undertake maintenance of plant and equipment for the better. In anticipation of our significant anniversary next year, this Blog post will introduce our 100-day countdown to the 65th anniversary and will share with you some of the exciting plans we have in store to mark the occasion.
Our story, which began over six decades ago, has been driven by the entrepreneurial spirit of the company founder, Jorgen Svendsen and the passion of our network of staff and Distributors. Our dedication to research and development, innovation and commitment to customer service has resulted in Belzona becoming the globally recognised brand that it is today.
Since inception, Belzona has pioneered innovative technology, enabling us to evolve into a technology leader in the field of protection against erosion, corrosion, abrasion, wear, chemical attack and water ingress. Continuing to develop market driven solutions to meet the ever-changing demands of industry and commerce, Belzona now has major offices in Europe, North America and Asia. With a global Distribution network of over 140 Distributors in more than 120 countries, we are thrilled to celebrate 65 years of success.
Looking to the future, the company is investing heavily in growing its business. With significant investment in training of our staff already coming to fruition and major expansion plans at our European head office in the pipeline, this investment will increase our manufacturing capabilities and improve Belzona training facilities.
To celebrate the prestigious occasion of 65 years in business, we will be hosting a variety of events around the world. We are thrilled to gather our team of Global Distributors and Consultants together to recognise the achievements and successes that have kept Belzona at the forefront of the innovation since 1952.
In the run up to our anniversary on 14th February 2017, we will be embarking on a 100-day countdown to the event sharing on our social media pages some of Belzona’s key milestones along with previously unseen photographs and anecdotes from our archives! Keep your eyes peeled for the #Belzona65 feed on our social media pages and please, if you have any stories or photographs of your own experiences with Belzona over the years, we would love to see them! Just use the tag #Belzona65.
