asecos - the innovation leader
How to recognize an innovation leader? From their vast technological know-how, extensive market knowledge and many business partners - but above all from a perpetual need to develop something new.
In 1994 we developed the first safety storage cabinet with 90 minute fire resistance. This aim was ambitious: To manufacture safety storage cabinets, which offer the same safety level for the storage of hazardous materials, as normal storage rooms.
The development of the type 90 technology was a revolution in our sector - and had a lasting impact on our business strategy. It was the beginning of our history as a trend-setter for safety-related products. asecos was setting new standards with many of its evolving technologies - and these standards still apply.
The passion to create innovative solutions is what drives us forward. This has led to the creation of a broad product portfolio - with customer specified solutions for nearly every application. Solutions, which have caused sensations when introduced worldwide!

Our expertise as a developer and manufacturer of safety products reflects not only in our first-class portfolio but also in our range of services. Our sales team is certified by the BDSF® (German Association of Consultants and Expert Valuers) as qualified evaluators for the storage and extraction of hazardous materials.
The specialist dealers and exclusive partners, who distribute our products around the globe, receive intensive training. An individual recommendation concerning the safe and approved storage of hazardous materials is one aspect, which is of particular importance to us. Only partners who are intensively trained are able to consider the local conditions when giving on-site advice and offer an optimal product solution.
Only those who know the risks when handling hazardous materials are able to avoid them. This is the aim of the asecos academy. With our practical safety-seminars we would like to raise awareness of the risks associated with the handling and storage of hazardous materials. This knowledge leads, in a sustainable way, to greater safety in the workplace.
Furthermore asecos is member of Excellence4Lab, a cooperation of four independent companies, all of them leading manufacturers in a particular area of the lab.
