How it once started

Over 25 years ago, Serviel Smolders Sr. started as self-employed in the small maintenance and painting of buildings. After obtaining his FROSIO certificate, he was allowed to call himself a certified coating inspector, which laid the foundations for the contemporary Smolders SSO. A few years ago, Serviel Jr. joined the company and together with their team, they developed it into the leading international coating inspection and consulting company.
