SCC 2008/5.1 VCA-VOL Certification. The certificate for safe working on industrial locations. Working safe is 1st priority.


In April 2022 we obtained the STIPEL certificate (NEN EN 3840 HS) for safe working and switching of high and medium voltage installations.
In September we were able to secure our quality management system by obtaining our ISO 9001 [2015] certification.


Exactly 10 years after the start of RTC Group the new warehouse in Foxhol , The Netherlands was completed. 3200 m² of yard and 800 m² of warehouse to store the compressed air rental fleet.

We can now work on low voltage installations under our NEN3140 VP certificate obtained in 2023.


To better serve our customers and to be able to handle the largest projects, our rental fleet has been expanded again.
For example, various oil-free compressors have been added with 70, 80 and 100 m³/min. Not to forget the 42 Bar(g) boosters for special applications and PET industry customers. Air treatment has not been forgotten either.
We now have desiccant dryers ranging from 20, 60, 100, 120 upto 180 (!) m³/min each.
