Partnering opportunity

Dutch manufacturer of a corrosion free, stainless steel coupling to connect steel pipes is looking for agents or distributors


The Dutch company is manufacturer of stainless-steel repair clamps and couplings. The corrosion free coupling is used to connect 2 (mainly) steel pipes, in all sectors where pipes need to be connected. The connections are suitable for different streams such as: gas, water, oil, air, etc. and mainly used for pipes used above ground. The company is looking to expand and seeks new agents or distributors.

Partner sought

The Dutch company is offering a distribution services agreement (buying and selling of couplings) or a commercial agency agreement (commission) to companies with expertise in pipe steel connections, active in the water, oil & gas, energy or shipping sector. In both forms of partnerships the sought partner will be responsible for sales of the stainless steel couplings. The Dutch company will amongst others support the partner with marketing and technical support.


The Dutch company is a manufacturer and producer of stainless-steel repair clamps and couplings for various industries. The clamps and couplings meet all current standards for drinking water, gas, oil pipelines and since recently also for petrochemical pipelines in onshore and offshore industry. The pipes used in these industries (normally 6 meter long) need connecting. This is for example done with flanges (which take time to weld on and are heavy to lift) and by welding the pipes together (for which welding experience is needed: this process is time consuming, and the pipes have no flexible construction). The coupling the Dutch company developed to connect the steel pipes is easy to install and is very lightweight. It is even suited if there is a small gap between 2 pipes or a small angle. The inside of the pipe coupling features a patented rubber that compensates axial motion and angular distortion. It is a universal system with a unique patented sealing solution and the anchoring effect is applicable to all kinds of pipelines. The pipe-couplings are available in different thickness dimensions of 0.8 mm to 5 mm and outer diameters of 20 mm to 4 meters and are compatible with any traditional jointing system. The coupling can be fitted in fire risk or confined spaces without special equipment (no heat or fire hazard). It can be detached and re-used. Further features are: - Highest available standard (W5 / 316 stainless steel); - Lightweight; - Up-to 100 bars; - Angle deflection possible; - less stock, wider range than all competitors; - All possible dimensions; - Leak-proof joint for liquids, gas and for solids; - Patented gasket design; - Easy to fit, no welding; - Patented fire protection for maximum safety. For many years the Dutch company has been working successfully with agents and distributors worldwide. Still same types of cooperation are sought worldwide and for the Asian market, like India.

Advantages and innovations

Tested and compared to similar available couplings in the current market the main advantages and innovations of the coupling of the Dutch company are: - Pressure on seal; - No pressure on gasket center; - No strip insert; - No corrosion. The Dutch manufacturer and producer has all: - International certificates for rubber gaskets (such as: ACS, W270, WRAS); - International official approvals for the shipping industry (American Bureau of Shipping (ABS), Germanischer Lloyd (GL), Det Norske Veritas (DNV)); All products are 100% own production, therefore the company is very flexible in producing various lengths, pressures, etc., and can offer short delivery time and competitive pricing.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
