The year 2020 started off well, with favorable economic conditions and a favorable outlook.
In 2020, everyone was confronted with unprecedented circumstances due to the pandemic. Naturally that also held for our own people.
At the end of 2019, we completed the acquisition of Benteler Distribution, an international distribution company that, just like Van Leeuwen, offers a wide range of carbon steel and stainless steel pipes and tubes and services.
The Van Leeuwen Pipe and Tube Group’s consolidated net sales were € 1,178 million (2019: € 787 million).
In 2020, we therefore reviewed our strategy and brought it in line with the new situation. Our strategic plans for the coming years have been redefined and refined.
To achieve our strategic goals and to continue to be a leading specialist in steel pipes and tubes, we rely on a large team of skilled and motivated professionals.
In 2020, we took major steps integrating both companies and we built the foundation for the future.
