LIMOTEC was founded on 28 December 1983 by Marc Osten and Danny Snauwaert with the aim of designing, developing and manufacturing fire & gas detection systems. Its registered office is located at Kasteelstraat 39A in Hulste.


LIMOTEC receives the West Flanders award for "Best Management" and the honorary award for "Best Starter".


The original company premises are gradually becoming too small. To expand production capacity, a new office and production facility is added to the existing site in Hulste.


After more than 10 years of service, Marc Osten is leaving the company. Jan Herreman becomes the new associate.


There is no space for further expansion at the Hulste site.  LIMOTEC purchases the current business premises at Bosstraat 21 in Vichte and moves to the new premises on 6 January 2006. This secured LIMOTEC's further expansion and future.


In October 2018, LIMOTEC becomes a HALMA company. Current Managing Director Jan Herreman remains on board. HALMA PLC is a global group of life-saving technology companies. The Halma group comprises around 45 companies and employs more than 7,000 people in more than 20 countries, with main operations in the UK, Europe, US and Asia-Pacific. Halma is listed on the London Stock Exchange and is part of the FTSE 100.


LIMOTEC is added in november 2020 as an autonomous business unit to the AMPAC GROUP with headquarters in Perth, Australia. AMPAC also belongs to the HALMA group. LIMOTEC
continues to operate under its own established brand and becomes the European centre of the AMPAC group. All key functions such as R&D, production, sales, service and finance remain in place. Jan Herreman joins AMPAC's board.
