IJsfabriek Strombeek began its activities in 1904 with the production of ice in the form of ice blocks for the food industries and the hotel and catering industry. With the arrival of the electric cooling installations carbon dioxide for the pulling of beer on tap was also added.
In 1952 the company was founded and IJsfabriek Strombeek started with the production of industrial gases such as oxygen and acetylene for welding and cutting. The activities were systematically extended to other sectors and there was also a wide range of welding equipment included in the offer.
At the end of the seventies IJsfabriek Strombeek started the production of laughing gas, among others for anaesthesia. We are still the only company in Belgium that produces laughing gas itself and have in the meantime grown to become the market leader in Europe.
IJsfabriek Strombeek has over the years further diversified and now serves companies in the medical, industrial, and food sector. Also for different environmental techniques and laboratory techniques we have all possible gases. With our own production facilities for dry ice and CO2 we are the reference in the field of refrigeration and freezing techniques.
IJsfabriek Strombeek is the only company on the market of gasses that has remained fully Belgian. Our headquarters are located in Meise (region of Brussels) and we have grown into a company with more than 90 employees within a highly professional business structure.
With the strong focus on the Belgian market, no other supplier understands the Belgian companies better than IJsfabriek Strombeek. This translates into a distribution network of 46 delivery and/or collection depots in Flanders and Wallonia and a client base of more than 30000 satisfied customers.
