THE LONG HISTORY OF CORMET
Over 60 years of excellence in material and corrosion testing
Cormet is manufacturing corrosion and material testing instruments.
Our mission is to be world's most preferred corrosion testing instrument provider.
Our first responsibility is to the scientists and engineers who use our products and to their customers. All we do to fulfil their needs must be of high quality. Customers and their needs must be serviced accurately, on time and promptly. We must strive to provide state of art products and services that fulfil customers’ needs and provide solutions to their challenges.
We are responsible to our employees whose professional skills and professional attitude are essential to our success. Compensation must be fair and adequate. Employees who take responsibility must be especially appreciated. Subcontractors and distributors must be treated fairly, they must be given adequate information and training, and they must be given an opportunity to make a fair profit.
We participate actively in the operation of material and corrosion testing societies. Together with scientists and engineers, we try to find solutions to decrease costs caused by corrosion, improve safety and protect human life, the environment and natural resources.
Business must make a sound profit. New products must be developed and launched. Reserves must be created to carry over economically weaker times. As a result of all these principles, shareholders should realize a reasonable return for their investment.
Cormet’s story starts with building VVER nuclear power plants at the end of the 1970s. The delivery did not include much data about the power-plant construction materials. As a government-owned research organization, VTT (Technical Research Centre of Finland) was asked to acquire a knowledge base, expertise and a testing laboratory. The first autoclaves and other high-pressure high-temperature corrosion- and material-testing instruments were built for VTT by Cormet’s predecessor.
During the 1980s, Cormet delivered instruments to laboratories in several European countries for nuclear power generation. Gradually, the customer base expanded to include customers in the oil and gas industry, as the same high-pressure, high-temperature instruments can be used in various applications.
In 1996 Cormet Ltd. was formed. Cormet became a privately owned company after splitting from Huber Oy, a company later bought by YIT. The customer base of Cormet started to grow outside Europe, with first deliveries to the Soviet Union and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
In the early 2000s, Cormet began a strategic expansion into the emerging markets of India and Japan. This expansion focused on the research and development of equipment related to nuclear power generation, which helped to establish Cormet as a leading player in this highly specialized field.
Awareness of Cormet’s products has expanded to new markets and new agents are recruited to sell our products. First sales to China, Thailand, and Pakistan.
Currently, Cormet provides material and corrosion testing instruments to customers all over the world. We design and build customized corrosion testing instruments for various environments, applications, needs and customers. We also actively participate in Eurocorr.
