The emergence of Blygold America
It began in the early 1970’s when Rijk Bleijenberg discovered a new chemical cleaning method for cooling devices whilst on a working trip in the USA. Later in 1976 he founded his own company under the name of BlyChem (Bleijenberg Chemicals) and introduced these new innovative methods for the first time in the Netherlands
In the years to follow, the rising demand for corrosion protection on heat exchangers of HVAC equipment significantly increased. As a solution a unique new product was ingeniously invented. This product BlyGold Plus, aptly named because of it’s golden colour, was the launch of the now acclaimed brand Blygold.
The history of Blygold America dates back to 1999 when Blygold International already had representation in all continents except for the America’s. A General Manager was hired to set up an office that would consist of technical and commercial people to find suitable partners that would become certified Blygold applicators and serve the American continent. As the new GM had contacts in the surroundings of Baltimore, the first Blygold America office was set up in Stevensville MD.
The plan was to start the Blygold activities in the USA first and then to expand to North and South America. In September of 1999 we welcomed our first partner in the USA which was Blygold Georgia followed by Blygold Hawaii in 2000, an OEM in Canada in 2000, Blygold Texas in 2001, Blygold New York in 2002, Blygold Mexico in 2003 and Blygold California in 2003.
In 2005 Blygold America decided to move its operation to Florida. It’s at this time that we set up Blygold Florida and continued to develop the Blygold America activities from there. Today, in 2018 we have Blygold partners in 9 different states in the USA as well as in countries like Jamaica, Bahamas, Canada, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic and Mexico.
In 2016 Michael Gillis joined the Blygold team as the Director of the America’s. He has helped to expand Blygold America to its 16 current partners. Blygold America is still looking to grow its presence and are seeking for ambitious, enthusiastic partners who would like to join this dynamic network that is focused on quality, energy-saving and lifetime expansion of HVAC equipment.
Today Blygold is partnered with more than 75 companies in over 60 countries and is a well-known and reputable name in the HVAC industry. This is mainly thanks to the dedicated and enthusiastic partners that have chosen to work with Blygold. Together they benefit from this successful formula.
