Truly good service means to think like the customer.”

After working more than 10 years in leadership positions of PVD/CVD machine building, project management and customer service at CemeCon and Eifeler-Vacotec, Dirk created Tronic Concept as an independant international customer service provider for all different kinds of PVD/CVD and PeCVD equipments. By servicing and troubleshooting all differend kinds of coating machines for many years he could achieve a high skilled knowledge of vaccum and plasma technology, mechanics, electrics and PLC.

As project manager for PVD turn key systems he setup several coating centers. During the last years Tronic Concept planned several new coating centers and moved the complete coating and peripheral equipment to their new location (e.g. in Spain, Austria, Germany, Netherlands). The project was taken over from the planning and scheduling to the start up of the production.

As a coating center only works with all the necessary peripheral equipment Tronic Concept provides also troubleshooting for chillers, cleaning lines and other pre- and post treatment equipment. Even the best equipment can only run efficient and productive with an experienced and capable customer service and a well planned and scheduled preventive maintenance. Specially in our business a long term expertise in customer service is necessary to locate and solve problems fast and efficiently to decrease running costs and down time.
