Van Leeuwen
Our company

Our company

Van Leeuwen is an international distribution company specializing in steel pipes, and pipe and tube applications. The family-owned company, with its head office in Zwijndrecht, the Netherlands, was founded in 1924 and is active in virtually all industrial sectors. The Group, including the recently acquired company Benteler Distribution, has close to a hundred branches spread throughout Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Australia, and North America. Our employees have specialist knowledge of sourcing, processing, project management, logistics and stock planning and work closely together with customers in its markets. The combination of global logistics and knowledge of products and customer applications makes Van Leeuwen a leading company in its markets.

More than tubes

Van Leeuwen's core business consists of the trade in steel pipes and related products. This is how the company had its start in 1924 as a one-man company in Zwijndrecht, the Netherlands. Since then we have evolved into a company that goes far beyond this. With more products and services, as well as a global network of close to one hundred largely stock-keeping branches in 33 countries in Europe, the Middle East, Australia, Asia and North and South America. With specialist knowledge of logistics processes, stock planning and project management. With knowledge and expertise in the area of applying our products and services in various markets and industries. This is why we can rightly say: Van Leeuwen offers far more than just pipes and tubes.


We are driven in our ambitions and in our evolution by what markets and customers require from us, now and in the future. Van Leeuwen has increasingly evolved into a service-oriented business, directed at specific markets and customers on the one hand, and on large projects with partnerships and customization on the other hand. We reinforce our leading market positions through organic growth and acquisitions, as well as through continually strengthening and broadening our product portfolio, service delivery and international organization. Our acquisitions are focused on areas in which we do not yet have any in-house specialisms, or on geographical areas where we do not yet have a strong presence and want to enlarge our footprint.
