Who are we?

Our company was founded in 1973, and since then we have become an ultra-modern manufacturer and international market leader in the development of lead products for radiation shielding in nuclear medicine. Starting as a manufacturing company, we have progressed over time into a highly specialized knowledge organization. You can therefore expect the highest quality and continuity throughout our entire organization. As a medium-sized family-owned business, we have all the capabilities to serve the professional market worldwide, but we have remained small enough to ensure intensive personal collaboration and short lines of communication. We fulfill all our projects with our own project teams. In addition to our headquarters in Zevenaar, the Netherlands, we have sales offices in Germany and the USA. Worldwide we can rely on our carefully developed network of partners who have worked with our products for years.
