Please take a look below for a brief history of our family business
1975 - 1978 - from trade to manufacturing
Founded in 1975 as trader, we startet manufacturing of steel profiles in 1978. We began manufacturing U and L-sections from strip to 500 x 4 mm with our first machine at our factory in Zwijndrecht. Soon after that we moved on to manufacturing C-sections.
In the early years, the greenhouse market was our prime target. A few years later, we began manufacturing products for the automobile-body industry and the construction sector. The purchase of a second production machine was a logical consequence. The machine had a capacity for up to 6 mm strips ideal for the manufacturing of standard sections and relatively simple custom made sections.
1995 - New workshop in Moerdijk
Very quickly there was a demand for prepunched profiles with more adaptations (for scaffolding purposes). These developments required new machinery and a slit-machine, resulting in our constructing a new workshop at Moerdijk. Until the end of 1995, Kontinex Steel held over 8 profiling machines and 1 slitter.
1996 - Acquisition Thomas Regout
This year saw the takeover of the profiling section which included 5 profiling machines, of Thomas Regout in Maastricht. A significant expansion of our product range. This also marked an exponential increase in the production of ever more complex profiles.
2005 - New branch Wuppertal & Transitoweg Moerdijk
In mai 2005 KS Profil GmbH openend its doors in Wuppertal, the salesoffice dedicated to the german-language area.
In November 2005, Kontinex Steel opened a new branch on the Transitoweg in Moerdijk. The factory installed a new slitter for strip steel, for pre-coated and thin range purposes. After the take-over of Pocometal in 2007, we were able to offer sheet and strip in even narrower ranges.
2010 – Rebranding as KS Profiel
The name Kontinex Steel made way for the new brand KS Profiel. The brand elucidates our specialization in cold-formed profiles. Following the takeover of Pocometal, we added the name KS Band en Plaat for our strip and sheet division.
KS Profiel B.V. now has an ultramodern slit line at its disposal, in addition to 12 profiling lines for laser welding and/or punched standard and complex sections. In addition to our Dutch headquarters, we also sell our profiles via KS Profil GmbH in Germany.
