Great solutions for complex measurement problems

The company originates from the IAC Foundation, which was established in 1984 under the auspices of the business community and with  the Hogeschool Drenthe (Polytechnic) in Emmen.

The target of the IAC organization was focused on a consolidation of the measuring technical infrastructure in the northern part of the Netherlands by carrying out the NEN-EN-ISO/IEC 17025-certified calibrations for the industry.

A Highly advanced metrological laboratory was constructed with, airco, the inventory of instruments and RVA accredited facilities are concerned.

The management of IAC has been in control of Ir. Reginald Galestien from the start in 1984.

Besides the successful realisation of the first objective, a new activity was initiated by the management soon after the start of the company:

The development and the manufacturing of special measuring instruments and measuring machines.

In order to solve their measuring problems hundreds of companies and government institutions from all over the world have successfully called upon the engineering company of IAC..

The Current Company Structure

Quality products from highly specialized and skilled company.

IAC Geometrical Engineers B.V. is part of Verne Holding B.V. to the same holding also belongs IAC B.V. 

In 1989 the measuring and calibration company was taken over by the management and two participating companies.
As from January 1, 1999 the enterprise structure has been arranged according to this scheme.

By the holding company of Reginald Galestien, the management is executed through Verne Holding B.V.. over the subsidiary companies:

  • IAC - Meettechnische Service.

For a better control and stimulation of the development of the engineering activities and the metrological service, both were split up and classified resp. under
