About Fontijne Presses

Who we are

Fontijne Presses BV – based in Delft, The Netherlands – is a specialized and highly praised manufacturer of laboratory platen presses. Today, Fontijne has an installed base of more than 2.000 laboratory platen presses around the world.

From its inception back in 1909 Fontijne focused on delivering reference grade quality. In the early days, Fontijne manufactured equipment for the rubber industry, such as mixers, presses, etcetera, but soon the company specialized in laboratory presses.

In 2017, Aptco Technologies acquired Fontijne Presses. A win-win for both companies, as Aptco Technologies wanted to invest in the unique knowledge and manufacturing techniques to build high quality laboratory platen presses, while Fontijne Presses benefits from the scale and the global organization of Aptco Technologies.
