TriMas Opens New Lamons Sales and Service Center in Rotterdam, The Netherlands
17th June, 2009
TriMas Corporation- a diversified manufacturer of engineered and applied products - today announced that its Lamons(R) business unit has opened a new sales and service center facility in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, to even better serve its global customers.
Lamons Nederland B.V. recently began operations in Rotterdam with a 20,000 sq. ft. facility with plans to move into a larger building in September of this year. The facility has the ability to produce and/or stock industrial gaskets and complementary fasteners for petroleum refining, petrochemical and other industrial uses throughout Europe.
"Patterned after our success in North America," stated Kurt Allen, Lamons Vice President of Sales and Marketing, "Lamons is the first company to bring together this combination of gaskets and bolts under one roof to the European market, reducing the number of suppliers needed for these products. We are already receiving orders from refining, petrochemical, chemical, contractor and distribution markets throughout the continent."
Mr. Allen added that Rotterdam was chosen as a hub because of the amount of refining and petrochemical activity within a 75-kilometer radius and its close proximity to Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, one of Europe's largest airports.
This new service center maintains an inventory of standard gaskets and stud bolts and boasts state-of-the-art manufacturing capabilities to fabricate special spiral wound, jacketed, Lamons Kammpro(TM), corrugated and cut gaskets, as well as stud bolts cut to special lengths, ensuring quick service. Laser technology, as well as CNC plasma-cutting capability, allows the production of intricate heat exchanger gaskets from a single piece construction, including accurately cut cores for Kammpro-type exchanger gaskets.
Based in Houston, Texas, Lamons produces and distributes metallic and non-metallic industrial gaskets and complementary fasteners for petroleum refining, petrochemical and other industrial uses all over the world. It is the largest gasket supplier to the domestic petroleum industry and has maintained its market leadership through its premium products and superior customer service.
