How we work


If you interested in one or more of our products, just contact us. If we don’t have a dealer in the part of the world you are doing your business, we are interested in you as well. In case there is already a dealer, we can bring you in contact with them to obtain our products.


If we can welcome you as a new dealer, we ask you to read our import and export rules and prices carefully and respect them. We would like to obtain a healthy business environment to do honest and good business together. If you do that, you have a deal.


When we start doing business together, payment terms are to be discussed. Mostly the products are available directly from our stock, but as every business man or woman knows, it is possible that we have sometimes a short lead time.
