Because of our wish to extend our market penetration in Europe we have entered into a special partnership agreement with IBS International Bearing Services BV of Rotterdam, the Netherlands, whom we have known since 2007. (www.ibsrotterdam.nl
Under our agreement we shall be marketing certain types of bearings and slewing rings under a joint brand name whereby we are able to offer European 3.1 and International 3.2 certifications. Under IBS’ direction the European 3.1 certification will be done by a Dutch or German Engineering bureau. More details will be given on receipt of definite enquiries.
In addition to the English language, IBS is also able to answer any technical questions in Dutch, German, French, Spanish, Italian and Swedish. Prospective customers can choose to contact either THB or IBS. Either way has no influence on the given quotation as we are both aware of the necessity to be competitive at all times.
As a token of the close personal and business relationship which exists between the two companies Ton Eras, M.D. of IBS, at a dinner party held in June 2011 in the 185 m. tall observation tower ‘Euromast’ in Rotterdam, presents Sam Yuan, M.D. of THB with an antique map of 1747 of the Netherlands.
