Control & Protection was established in 1976. The company focused in the first years on the sale of electrical switchgear and control devices for high-voltage systems and networks. With the emergence of the PLC in the early 1980s, Control & Protection started to specialize in industrial automation.
Further diversification followed in the mid-1980s, with the group also specializing in fire protection products for the nuclear sector and the steel industry. Test and measurement equipment were also added to the product range during the same period.
To structure the various activities, Control & Protection works with three divisions. Each division has its own technical advisors who specialize in depth in their specific market segment. These divisions work closely together whenever possible. Each division receives the required support for administration, help desk and deliveries.
With a central location in Antwerp, Control & Protection is active in the Benelux. Due to the proximity of the port of Antwerp, we have numerous small and very large port companies in our customer base for each of the three divisions. Since 2013 we have been active in France through our sister company CP Solutions.
We build long-term relationships with our customers within our three market areas. Thanks to our expertise due to many years of experience, we guarantee our customers high-quality and innovative solutions, so that they gain a competitive advantage.
We only work with products, solutions and services that meet our very high quality requirements. Therefore we only work with strictly selected suppliers.
We invest heavily in the education and training of our employees so that our customers can rely on high-quality services.
