Our high-quality equipment sets the pace for the fertilizer, chemical and petrochemical industries. When it comes to highly corrosive and critical media, we are known to be passionate about giving our equipment the right treatment.

Our teams warrant reliable, safe and eco-friendly solutions. Solutions which meet and exceed the highest international quality standards at the heart of every plant. Solutions our clients can trust.
From One-Man Business to World Market Leader
Following a shift in the share structure in 2015, the industrial services branch in Romania was carved out. At the same time, Stefan Christof took over as CEO. Together with the leadership team, he devised a future-proof concept to realign the company as a quality-driven specialist. Based on Christof Group’s core business and unmatched engineering skills, the focus was shifted towards the production of high-end critical process equipment at the helm of the world market. New and smart solutions at the heart of tomorrow’s industrial plants should boost process efficiency, lower the environmental footprint and downtimes and extend the lifespan of plants and their equipment. With this clear goal in sight, an intimate knowledge of industrial processes, proven technological expertise and precision workmanship, Christof Group seized new market opportunities.
The Group kicked off 2019 with full order books and an export ratio of more than 95%. With its four prestigious operations ACE, ACE Metalna, APB and SBN, five high-end production facilities and being known for repairing the unrepairable, Christof Group advances future-proof and best-in-class solutions which gain and maintain the trust of clients and business partners all over the world.
trust in solutions
Our goal is to go beyond that by fabricating the most durable critical process equipment for our clients. To achieve this, we will tap into the unused potential of innovative highly resistant materials and novel production techniques. We will deepen our skills and knowledge in the polymer, oil and gas sectors as well as in urea and ammonia synthesis. To do so, we will put more focus on research and development, collaborate with leading technology providers and undertake only those acquisitions that best complement our endeavours.
We want to install new and smart solutions at the heart of tomorrow’s industrial plants. Solutions which reduce complexities and costs, minimize risks, provide long-term investment security and maximize plant productivity. Solutions which go beyond quality. This is what we understand as solutions our clients can trust.
