It is 1965 when Fred van Eck, talking to a fellow passenger on a plane, comes up with a unique idea: “Developing a cargo strapping system from rayon yarn”, also used in the production of car tires. He thought this new product – Rayon strap – would be the ideal replacement for traditional steel strapping systems. An idea with great potential…
Van Eck quickly realized he had come up with a groundbreaking idea. Soon after, together with a partner, he founded our company in the city of Helmond, The Netherlands. He began manufacturing the first generation of cargo strapping systems. The idea caught on, and the market for Rayon straps grew along with our company’s production.
In 1968, we opened our first branch outside The Netherlands – a sales office in Germany. Many more followed over the years – we now support over 50 countries around the world – and our global network continues to grow. We currently have manufacturing and sales locations in various countries, including but not limited to: the Baltic States, the Benelux, Brazil, Canada, China, Germany, France, India, Ireland, Italy, Malaysia, Mexico, Poland, South Africa, Spain, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom, the United States of America (USA), and our head office in The Netherlands. We also have a worldwide network of carefully selected and trained partners.
