The company was originally established by Mr. Hubert Skibowski in Hamburg in 1981.
At this time the business provided engineering design and consultancy services and specialised in the design and manufacture of pigging systems. This technology was initially developed for the lubricating oil and chemical industries and then subsequently introduced to the food and varnish industries. Today, the I.S.T. brand name is synonymous with high quality and innovative products.
We offer a comprehensive range of products and services, from single pigging system components to complete "turn-key" project solutions, including planning, design, engineering and installation.
I.S.T. systems are used world-wide by a wide range of industries, including oils, paints, chemicals, foodstuffs, toiletries, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals. Furthermore, our Hamburg factory and head office is supported by our own strategically located sales offices and a network of international distributors, providing our customers with a global sales and service network.
