Looking for a supplier of custom aluminium or plastic parts? We are a Dutch company specialised in turning and milling of aluminium and plastic components.

Thereby we supply a complete as possible product, including machining (turning and milling work), taking care of finishing processes and possible assembly. Next, the parts will be packed with carefullness.

With unburden we mean next to a complete product, also meeting our agreements and a punctual delivery. A reliable partner is of course very important for your own logistic organisation. We believe that clear and straightforward communication is very important.

Socially involved

Our opinion is that it is important to give back to the (local) community. The society is important for everyone and in this way, we and our employees and all others in society are direct or indirectly connected to each other. This connection ensures a nice interaction, but also responsibility for that connection. To contribute to the liveability in our community, we support several initiatives and sport clubs in Boekel. Besides that, we yearly donate a modest amount to multiple national medical institutions.
