Our corporate values

For almost 50 years we have been providing clean air at work worldwide.

Our story started in 1975 when John Plymoth and Dirk den Dekker started their own companies independently of one another – Plymouth in Sweden and Euromate in the Netherlands. The Swedish entrepreneur John Plymoth focused on engineered welding fume solutions for large clients, while the Dutch company, led by Dirk den Dekker, focused on plug-and-play products sold through dealers and partners. Two startups with two different strategies and one common goal: clean air for employees worldwide.

In 1989, Plymouth acquired CelciusVent, a leading manufacturer and distributor of ventilation systems for the capturing of vehicle exhaust fumes. The two company names were combined and the brand as we know it today was born: Plymovent.

Ten years later, Euromate acquired a distributor and became the Clean Air Group, which then acquired Plymovent in 2006. In 2014, the current shareholders acquired all Plymovent shares with the aim of continuing to build a great company with one main goal – clean air at work.
