"People may doubt what you say, but they will always believe what you do".

Lewis Cass

Our mission: to create safety.


With over 60 years of specialised experience, the words that best describe what the work of Excen is all about are: prevention – safeguarding – protection – assurance – care – attention.

Wherever there is the risk of explosion, then paramount is the safety for people, the environment, and the protection of investments.


Producing safety: the most effective way to solve problems is to first prevent them from being created, providing this with tailor-made solutions for each customer’s different needs.


We carry out explosion protection of electric and diesel machines, making them suitable for operation in potentially explosives atmospheres. We also produce equipment to ensure safety in chemical, petrochemical, pharmaceutical, food & beverage, cosmetics, oil & gas, and explosives industries in civilian and military use.


"A person's worth is measured by the worth of what he values".

Marcus Aurelius

Central to the products that our company designs, produces and delivers to customers is that of safety. 

This attitude to safety is guided and driven by a total and all-encompassing philosophy that runs throughout Excen.


The words that perhaps best describe this philosophy are: zero compromise.


The commitment to pursue the highest degree of humanly attainable safety is the value that guides us and shapes the culture of our work.


"History is the narration of facts, and stories are the history of sentiment".

Claude Adrien Helvétius

Throughout history, facts and feelings are inextricably intertwined. 


Facts are as a result of choices, and choice comes from will, from interest and often from passion, whereas the notions of prevention and safety – these have always steadfastly come from within the structure of the company.


The company by the time of its inception in 1996, was already long founded on an entrepreneurial tradition for engineering safety since 1948.


So, we are our history, our choices, our will, our commitment. It is about people acknowledging a common work whereby achievements are attained through the pursuit of excellence, originality and innovation.


History is made by people; herein lies the real difference.
