Tyneso takes over IT workload for IJsfabriek Strombeek

Ijsfabriek Strombeek

IJsfabriek Strombeek, a never-ending story of growth

Extremely diverse and international, that about sums up IJsfabriek Strombeek.

From the production of water ice and carbon dioxide for the catering industry and industrial gases for welding and cutting to the production of nitrous oxide for the medical sector. Thanks to its own production installations for dry ice and CO2 , this family business paves the way with regard to cooling and freezing technology and is a European market leader for nitrous oxide.

Tyneso & IJsfabriek Strombeek: a perfect match

Thanks to their dedication and down-to-earth approach to finding solutions for their customers, IJsfabriek Strombeek has already made many changes for the better. However, in the digital, any further growth in terms of products and people era is simply impossible without shifting their IT environment to a higher gear. The family business started looking for a reliable partner to team up with permanently. And that’s where Tyneso comes in.

The challenges

For a long time, internal staff handled the company’s IT. But what about when they retire? Do you hire a new IT employee or is it better to take a reliable partner on board? IJsfabriek Strombeek opted for the latter, for some very good reasons.

“IT is increasingly important and is evolving rapidly”, says Maarten Schuermans, Technical Director at IJsfabriek Strombeek. “As we want to stay up to date and have access to the latest technology, we thought it would be best to work with external specialists. I had known Steven Tytgat from Tyneso for some time and I knew his company had built a reputation as an innovative, solid IT provider. After meeting a few times, we decided to engage Tyneso’s services.”

Tyneso understands our mindset very well. Instead of putting out fires, they monitor things proactively and advise us on affordable and phased solutions to fit our budget.

At the start of the collaboration, the main focus was on basic IT support. Individual employees could contact Tyneso for everyday IT problems. Over time, the projects expanded in scope. Tyneso modernised the company’s entire IT infrastructure, from network and servers to the roll-out of new PCs and laptops. All in aid of setting up a modern workplace and increasing productivity.

Modernise your IT infrastructure


“All IT issues have been taken off our hands and the innovations are already producing clear results. IJsfabriek Strombeek’s production has accelerated and we are making (digital) progress. The dynamics have changed and our team’s IT is always up to date.”

Sara Soens, Production Manager at IJsfabriek Strombeek. “Tyneso is always at hand, literally and figuratively. Their offices are not that far from us, which is practical in case of urgent IT issues. But I am also referring to their empathy and accessibility, always there with a solution.”

The financial impact? There is a fixed IT cost, but this is always predictable. Budgets for new investments – such as hardware – have become much easier to plan. The cost of Tyneso’s services is roughly equivalent to one permanent IT employee. The convenience, knowledge and return on investment are twice as high.
