ABN Cleanroom Technology was founded in 1996 and is now a leading supplier of modular and pre-engineered cleanroom solutions with Industry 4.0 integration. Ever since our establishment, we are specialized in designing, constructing, commissioning and maintaining cleanrooms for the (bio)-pharmaceutical market as well as for life science, healthcare, automotive and micro-electronics facilities. As leading innovator in providing Industry 4.0 connected cleanrooms, we make cleanroom technology affordable. Our key focus here is not the investment cost, but much more the Total Cost of Ownership of your cleanroom.
Disruptive Innovation is in our DNA and is the core of everything we do at ABN Cleanroom Technology. Our modular and pre-engineered cleanroom design based on our VIX concept leads to higher flexibility, reduces cleanroom complexity and increases uptime. We thrive on breaking through obstacles to develop innovative solutions and we foster a culture where our people push the limits in innovation. Our innovation strategy leads to patented cleanroom concepts that bring enormous customer value.
Investment in R&D is therefore an important driver for our innovation strategy. We continue to make a balanced investment in the life cycle management and market development of existing concepts that bring short to mid-term commercial benefits.
Our cleanroom developers have a lot of social responsibility during their projects. In addition to designing reliable cleanrooms, they are also constantly thinking up new solutions with a focus on circularity. This makes us a pioneer in introducing the Cleanroom-as-a-Service concept to the European market. Only in a “not-for-sale approach” does circularity find its true value. By using this approach, we make existing CAPEX models a thing of the past.
We believe that changing the business model is the only way to achieve the transition to circularity. Providing access to cleanroom solutions in combination with cleanroom process equipment and performance contracts is the new way of working towards a blue economy model.
VIX: let’s save energy in cleanrooms
Our patented VIX concept gives a wide range of opportunities when it comes to future driven cleanroom design. Our ballroom, bespoke and mobile cleanrooms are equipped with the VIX concept. This scalable and flexible platform holds on to a pre-engineered approach concerning the energy and technical installations of each cleanroom in order to optimize the usable space, minimize energy and reduce the duration of the construction work. Redundancy is embedded in the pre-engineered design process where we take Design for Reliability and Maintainability into account to the highest degree. VIX delivers modular building blocks that contain all the intelligence needed for optimal cleanroom design.
With more and more stringent regulatory standards, developing regions that offer growth opportunities and a higher demand for mechatronics & pharmaceuticals, the number of requested cleanrooms in the field keeps increasing. Read more
Cleanroom sensor technology, the Internet of Things and big data: these developments are the enablers for modern-day predictive maintenance in pre-engineered cleanroom design. Industries have been exposed to digital disruption during the whole industry 4.0 decade, even though they have different levels of innovation. Maintenance has not changed, and the function of maintenance has been under the spotlight to be reinvented and increase performance by using all the enabling technologies such as AI, IoT, big data, machine learning etc. Read more
Hoeveel bedrijven maken hard dat hun product of dienst 99,9% van de tijd werkt? ABN Cleanroom Technology garandeert zijn klanten sinds kort dat zijn cleanrooms maximaal 52 minuten per jaar zouden kunnen uitvallen. Van bij het uitdenken van deze straffe serviceclaim beseften ze dat ze dit enkel met AI konden realiseren. Lees verder [Bron: digitaletoekomst.be]
Throughout the years, our cleanroom design has evolved from pure design and installation to deploying a cleanroom as a whole, enabling circular business models through data extraction, resulting in ultimate lifecycle extension. This makes us a pioneer in introducing the Cleanroom-as-a-Service concept to the European market. Read more
As a result of rising energy prices, we notice that many cGMP and non-cGMP companies are considering installing a continuous particle counter in their cleanroom. Since continuous particle counting within cGMP is only a requirement in Grade B and Grade A environments, it didn’t happen often in other cleanroom environments until today. Companies are finding that the investment cost of an online particle counting system pays for itself very quickly and opt for this interesting investment. A shift in the cleanroom world that is fully in line with our patented VIX concept and which we therefore completely approve. Read more

Cleanrooms are a significant contributor of carbon emissions. As the broader economy transitions to net zero, various stakeholders are pushing for cleanroom decarbonization. The electrification of heating systems could play a significant role in this transition. Electrifying space and water heating systems is one way to reduce cleanroom emissions, and electric heat-pump technology, which has improved and become cost-competitive in certain markets, has emerged as an increasingly viable solution.

Rapidly changing guidelines within the cleanroom industry create completely different requirements than a few years ago. Not only the fact that certain compliancy guidelines change rather quickly, but also the technological acceleration in the cleanroom sector results in an increasing amount of requests for remodeling existing cleanrooms with the aim to upgrade them.

The cost of a modular & pre-engineered cleanroom can range significantly depending on your requirements and it is extremely tricky to give you a fixed cleanroom cost price per square meter. Why is that? There are many variables to take into consideration when looking for purchasing or renting a cleanroom. What is the location of installation? Will it be a box-in-box solution? What is your required cleanliness classification? What utilities do you need? Our off-the-shelf indoor cleanroom facilities and mobile outdoor cleanroom units are developed to meet customers’s needs across all sectors and for all ISO & cGMP classifications. Read more

Rapidly changing guidelines within the cleanroom industry create completely different requirements than a few years ago. Not only the fact that certain compliancy guidelines change rather quickly, but also the technological acceleration in the cleanroom sector results in an increasing amount of requests for remodeling existing cleanrooms with the aim to upgrade them. Within ABN, we notice that more and more production facilities demand a remodeling of their existing cleanroom. This means that the existing facility will be retained, but adapted to comply with new or more stringent regulations instead of building a complete new building from scratch. Read more
