Boerman System Automation (BSA) is established in 1996 by Jan-Kees Boerman as a company for process techniques. Gradually the company growed to IT. At the end of 1999, BSA started to develop embedded web techniques.
In february 2000 the first project about environment monitoring was started. One year later, in februari 2001 an own calibration unit was realised for calibration of gas sensors.
Because environmental monitoring was expanding within BSA, in the summer of 2001 it was decided to start another company to design and produce gassensor measurement applications. Environmental Monitoring Systems (EMS) BV was born.
