LGTB started out in 1952 as a subcontractor to Philips. Since then, the business has grown to become the Benelux market leader in surface treatment of materials.

From thin cadmium coatings
From 1952 on LGTB operated out of Melkvoetstraat, Hasselt, mainly for Philips. We prevented Philips Hasselt’s materials from corrosion with a thin coating of cadmium.

Via organic and metallic surface treatments
Very quickly LGTB felt the need for an initial expansion of capacity. This came about in Tulpinstraat in Kiewit. By the middle of the 60s space was again in short supply and LGTB moved to its present site in Albertkanaalstraat.


As the company grew, so did our range of surface treatments, making room for new processes such as chroming, galvanising, zinc-iron and tin.

To wholistic solutions
Today, LGTB provides added-value, above all by thinking along with you about all-embracing solutions to protect your products. To do this, we currently operate with over 65 people in a total working area of around 12,000 square metres.
