Foreword

A few years ago, Van Leeuwen introduced its corporate image ‘more than tubes’. From the company’s
foundation in 1924, we have continuously evolved to supply our customers with more than just tubes.
Nowadays we offer our customers a broad package of products and services using a worldwide network of dozens of branches. In more than ninety years we have developed solid knowledge and expertise in the area of distribution, stock planning, and the application of our products and services in various markets and industries. 

The image that we combine with the ‘more than tubes’ pay-off shows various examples of applications for which our pipes are used, within various Industry and Energy markets in which we play a role: ranging from refinery to crane, from power plant to stadium, from oil platform to hydraulic cylinder.

‘More than tubes’ is mainly about our specialisms, that we are pleased to highlight in this Annual Book: the international network, our distribution expertise, worldwide stocks, customized services, global sourcing and project management. 

It is our employees who give substance to these specialisms and thus to ‘more than tubes’. We therefore like to give them the floor in this Annual Book. Within the entire chain, from start to end-product, it is they who devote themselves each day to providing added value to our customers. They ensure there is cooperation within our international network, take care of daily deliveries to our customers, optimally manage our stocks, provide customized services, purchase the best products, and know how to professionally manage complex projects.
