Dhatec's 25th anniversary!

Dhatec's 25th anniversary!

The 1st of May Dhatec celebrates her 25th anniversary!

Dhatec now occupies three buildings with a total of 8000 m2 of factory and warehouse space, with an additional 800 m2 of office space, all situated in the industrial area of Bergeijk (in the Southern region of the Netherlands). A warehouse has also been established in Houston, USA, the energy capital of the world. More than 50 employees look after the design, production, sales and delivery of products to protect line pipes all over the world from damage.

Dhatec was founded 1992, in an old chicken barn in Luyksgestel (a Dutch village close to the Belgian border) by Fred Das and Franca van Ham. The company’s name is a combination of their last names Das and van Ham. Based on the technical nature of the products, the suffix ‘TEC’ was added and ‘Dhatec’ was born.
 
The first product produced by Dhatec was the Bevel Protector, p
roviding protection during the pipe transport and handling process. After three years of struggling to sell the Bevel Protector, the first big order came in from the Finnish pipe factory ‘Rauta Ruukki’ which resulted in the first profitable year. In 2003 the millionth Bevel Protector  was produced, which demonstrates the success of this product and the company. With a true entrepreneurial spirit, more innovative products were designed to solve customers’ problems. In 2008 Dhatec moved to its current building. With the total supply chain of the line pipes in mind, Dhatec developed a strategy to provide logistic solutions to all parties involved in the supply chain.
 

Today, Dhatec is
still very customer focused and entrepreneurial. With a skilled, well-educated and highly motivated workforce, the company is ready to grow further with Shawcor under the Pipeline Performance Products business unit!
