About Alia Instruments
Alia Instruments is a Dutch-based builder of production monitoring equipment for a variety of industries, serving customers from all over the world.
Alia Instruments began with a clear goal in mind: to redefine industry standards in sustainability, compatibility, and process optimization by providing users with innovative non-nuclear production monitoring solutions, based on a straightforward gauging principle and built from industry-standard components.
Our engineering is the result of an innovative reconfiguration of trusted elements technology that has proven itself in countless applications and conditions. We believe that what makes a reliable and accurate device is a comprehensive design that keeps matters simple.
Made to Measure
Alia Instruments is a technology leader, focused solely on our density meter. We aim to become, and remain, the market leader in non-nuclear density meters. This means that the company is in constant development to further improve the meter and make it even more adaptable to the applicable processes. Our meter strives to be the most suitable solution offering sustainable production maximization to each and every one of our customers. We believe that as long as we maintain this focus, we will progressively achieve all of our targets.
A tradition of innovation
Historically Dutch shipbuilders, instrument makers, and cartographers have been world leaders in technological innovation and expertise. This concentration of craftsmanship and maritime know-how transformed the Dutch Republic into a formidable naval power four centuries ago.
Today, the Dutch government, aware of this seafaring heritage, is actively promoting the maritime industry. The development of the meter was first initiated based on the demand from the dredging industry, and therefore Alia Instruments is a proud exponent of government incentives for 21st- century maritime innovation—and, as such, a proud exponent of a long and rich tradition
Regional roots. Global reach
Alia Instruments is based in Twente, a region of The Netherlands that emphasizes its entrepreneurial and tech-minded ethos. To further this ambition the provincial government has put various programs in place to attract investors, young and talented entrepreneurs, and developers of disruptive technology.
By being firmly rooted in this regional infrastructure Alia has the support it needs to change a global industry.
A network of knowledge
At the core of Twente’s tech infrastructure lies Twente University, one of four Dutch technical universities. The offices of Alia Instruments are located at the flagship innovation campus Kennispark, right next door to the university campus.
Our strong ties to our academic neighbor give us access to state of the art research and allow us to collaborate with students and professors, as well as fellow tech-entrepreneurs. This vast network of expertise informs both our product and our comprehensive customer service.
Using the network
Alia Instruments actively cooperates with, and makes use of, the knowledge and services of other companies in the region. Alia maintains a very close relationship with two companies in particular (Demcon and Imotec), as both are large contributors to the development of our products.
Back in 2012, the maritime automation company Imotec, primarily active in the dredging industry, made the first steps toward the development of a non-nuclear density meter. A cooperation was sought with the engineering firm Demcon, and together they went through a long development process before Alia Instruments was founded in early 2017.
