Vandaag, 12 november, is het de Dag van de Stalen Buis en staat de stalen buis in de schijnwerpers, en terecht!
Stalen buizen zijn overal om je heen, soms zichtbaar maar soms ook onzichtbaar, bijvoorbeeld als waterleiding onder de grond, als funderingspaal of als constructie (‘skelet’) achter de gevel van een gebouw. Daarom brengen wij de stalen buis graag één keer per jaar voor het verdiende voetlicht. Er zijn zoveel mooie toepassingen die met dit product gerealiseerd worden! Welke stalen buizen zie jij om je heen?
Together with transport company Lensveld we have taken a first step towards making our distribution activities CO2 neutral. We have started a joint pilot with an LNG truck supplied by Volvo. The LNG truck is part of the regular distribution planning from mid-October to the end of December. The aim is to eventually drive CO2 neutrally with Bio-LNG. At the beginning of 2022, we will evaluate this pilot and will decide how we will further shape this energy transition.

🎙️ In de podcastserie 'Aan de keukentafel met' voert burgemeester Hein van der Loo gesprekken met inwoners en ondernemers uit Zwijndrecht en Heerjansdam. Een open gesprek over wat zij doen, wat hen drijft en wat zij meemaken. En hoe kunnen we Zwijndrecht samen nog mooier en sterker maken? De gesprekken vinden plaats aan de keukentafel van de burgemeester.
9️⃣ In deze negende podcastaflevering praat burgemeester Hein van der Loo met Peter Rietberg, voorzitter Raad van Bestuur van de Van Leeuwen Buizen Groep. De wereldwijd opererende onderneming heeft meer dan 2400 medewerkers, zit in 33 landen en noteerde in 2020 een omzet van ruim een miljard euro. Niettemin verloochent het Zwijndrechtse familiebedrijf, dat in 2024 honderd jaar bestaat, zijn 'roots' niet. Rietberg: "Ons bedrijf is zo Zwijndrechts dat het aan de dijk staat. Voor zover we kunnen overzien, zullen met ons hoofdkantoor ook altijd in Zwijndrecht blijven."

Van Leeuwen - VL Connect July 2021 With the VL Connect, we like to keep you up to date with news – great and small – from the global network of the Van Leeuwen Pipe and Tube Group
Customers in the automotive segment produce or supply to producers of cars, trucks, buses and motorcycles. This segment is characterized by its high quality criteria and optimal management of the distribution chain. We supply products such as hollow sections, and welded and seamless pipes that generally are custom made using various specific treatments. To perfectly model the pipes, we regularly perform various treatments consecutively, one directly after the other. This is known as multi-step processing. For example, we can cut the pipes and then bevel the ends, or we can deform the pipes and then drill holes. We also offer additional
services in this segment, such as technical advice, quality control, and co-engineering. https://www.vanleeuwen.com/en/markets/automotive/
“In the evening, on the train to Rotterdam, the man sitting opposite us looked out of the window at the illuminated ‘Van Leeuwen Buizen’ letters on the Meerdervoort block of flats in Zwijndrecht. He then drifted off to sleep, and reawoke as we were approaching Rotterdam. After checking his watch, he again looked out of the window and exclaimed in amazement, ‘Wow, still Van Leeuwen, that’s one colossal company.’ However, the man was confused by the illuminated Van Leeuwen advertisement on the Feyenoord stadium in Rotterdam-Zuid, 14 kilometers further on. This anecdote was in the Dordtsch Nieuwsblad newspaper marking the 40th anniversary of P. van Leeuwen Jr.’s Buizenhandel NV in 1964. After the Second World War, the firm had experienced vigorous growth. #TBT #dekuip #zwijndrecht #history #morethantubes
AD de Dordtenaar heeft een mooi artikel over Van Leeuwen gepubliceerd. Lees het hier: https://lnkd.in/gEucBau
Zwijndrechts familiebedrijf zet ruim een miljard euro om: ‘We nemen Ad op de shovel uiterst serieus’ In een jaar waarin het Zwijndrechtse familiebedrijf Van Leeuwen Buizen noodgedwongen enkele voorraadlocaties in de Baltische staten moest sluiten, brak het door de magische omzetgrens van één miljard euro. Hoe kan dat?
The Van Leeuwen Pipe and Tube Group achieved a positive result in 2020, despite the extraordinary circumstances. The results were affected by the COVID-19 pandemic during the year. The company benefited however from the scale it gained with Benteler Distribution, which was acquired at the end of 2019. This doubled the size of the company. The market recovered somewhat at the end of 2020.

Pipes, bar steel and components are generally used for the production of hydraulic cylinders. These cylinders are incorporated into various, often complex machines, implements and systems. We also supply producers of hydraulic cylinders with various products, such as hydraulic pipes, cylinder pipes and bar steel in various versions and qualities, such as welded and seamless, cold-drawn and hot-rolled, hard chrome-plated and stainless. The treatments we can provide include honing, drilling, rolling and chroming. Technical innovations, light-weight products and corrosion protection are hot topics in the Hydraulics market. At the same time price pressures and competition in this segment are severe. That makes this market exceptionally challenging. Customers are primarily looking for professional technical support and a reliable sparring partner. We are fully capable of fulfilling that role.
Van Leeuwen supplies HPL tubes (high) pressure lines in hydraulically or pneumatically-driven equipment. This includes equipment such as freight transport vehicles, industrial vehicles, agricultural vehicles, cranes, machines and industrial robotics. In this segment we offer various products such as hydraulic lines, rods and cylinder tubes. https://www.vanleeuwen.com/en/markets/hydraulics/

Stock management in the 60s.
Until 1964, Van Leeuwen's stocks were recorded on large notice boards with cards. When an order came in, an employee would look at the board to see if the pipe was in stock. Every week, Van Leeuwen representatives would take a photograph of the boards in order to use them for their contacts. Keeping the board up to date was a difficult task that required a great degree of accuracy – there was no room for error, but the system was mechanized in 1964. The entire administration of the company was put onto punch cards that were processed by six machines; from then on, the process of mechanization became unstoppable. In 1969, Van Leeuwen acquired a new central computer: an IBM 360 with a 24-kilobyte memory, which replaced the six punch-card machines. The IBM was itself replaced in 1974 by a 128-kilobyte version, giving Van Leeuwen possession of the largest and fastest computer in the Zwijndrecht area.

For our customers in the Civil Engineering & Construction market, availability of products is very important. With our wide and deep stocks and short lead times we meet this demand. Moreover, we offer many additional material treatments such as cutting and coating. By taking the first processing step out of our customers' hands, we save valuable time and help reducing the total cost in the supply chain.

Pipelines are used for the transportation of liquids and gasses over long distances. Pipeline projects are often long term and complex. In order to carry them out successfully, we have a global network of professionals with expert knowledge of material specifications and the required coatings. Moreover, we have experienced colleagues to design smart logistical concepts in order to limit the total cost in the supply chain as much as possible. https://www.vanleeuwen.com/en/markets/pipelines/

After WW II the Van Leeuwen’s machinery was outdated and the firm was struggling with a lack of space for storing the army surplus goods. This prompted Van Leeuwen to purchase the Walburg site in 1947. With a surface area of 22,000 square meters, it was not ideal, as “(…) the waterway was relatively shallow, there were no rail links even though they were vital for our operations at the time, and last but not least, the site was four meters below the level of the dykes.” In record time, Van Leeuwen made the area suitable for storing pipes and he also built a depot for the storage of elbows and fittings. A mobile crane on wheels meant that the practice of moving the heavy pipes around by hand was a thing of the past.
