About us

At DCM EMBA Metering & Control NV, we strive to continuously offer our clients new activities and innovative technologies and products. We shape the further growth of the company with a clear long-term vision. 

But how exactly did DCM EMBA Metering & Control NV come into being? Below is a brief account of our history.


  • 1933: establishment by Mr De Craene and Mr Marsily of "DCM nv" in Antwerp as a supplier to the automotive and petroleum industries. DCM is the abbreviation of "Etablissementen De Craene en Marsily nv". 
  • 1987: acquisition by Finco nv. Meanwhile, a branch was also opened in the Netherlands.
  • 1989: acquisition of "F.A. Sening'' in Belgium, a subsidiary of the tanker appendage manufacturer of the same name in Germany. Due to lack of space, DCM moves to Waarloos (current location) where there is sufficient space to build garages and workshops for the tank truck division.


  • 1930: establishment of "Emba Techniek bv" under the name "Arnold I. van den Bergh's Handelmaatschappij" as a technical trading company of the "NV Emba", a well-known Rotterdam company in the packaging and timber trade industry.
  • 1951: due to considerable growth in trading activities, the import and trading activities are separated from the manufacturing department. The activities continue under the name "NV Emba Agenturen".
  • 1970: due to the company's many technical activities, the company name is changed to "Emba Techniek bv" . The company moves from Rotterdam North to a larger branch in Rotterdam South. New branches are also opened in Germany and Belgium.
  • 1986: "Emba Techniek bv" is sold to the investment company Geveke Group. The company moves to new premises in Dordrecht.

DCM EMBA (Metering & Control NV)

  • 2000: Finco buys the shares of "Emba Techniek bv". Due to the synergy between both companies, "DCM EMBA" becomes a strong Benelux-focused company to serve customers even more efficiently and with more added value.
  • 2007: Paul Bogaers becomes owner of "DCM EMBA" through a management buy-out. The Beneluxisation takes further shape and the main pillars of the company are professionalised even further.
  • 2009: DCM EMBA's activities in the terminal, depot and tank truck branch are centralised in Waarloos.
  • 2012: establishment of the new centralised company "DCM EMBA Metering & Control NV".
