Company profile

Van Besouw Slijptechniek B.V. was established in 1993 by spouses John and Inge van Besouw. The company has developed greatly ever since the start. Where in 1993 the company was a mere tool grinder, it is now an all-round grinding specialist.

We found the right location to establish our company in Hilvarenbeek, the Netherlands. We set out with ambition and focused on tool grinding and cylindrical grinding. In 2005, the need for a larger premises became apparent. The market's demand kept increasing and we started specialising in grinding carbide. Later, ceramic grinding processes were also added to our range of services.

We were able to grow to an all-round grinding specialist by investing in various high-tech CNC grinding machines and skilled staff. By constantly accepting new challenges, the team has developed into specialists in carbide and ceramics. Every day they work with very tight tolerances. To realise this precision work, the entire company is air conditioned.

We have a broad range of machinery available in-house. Our diversity in machines and skilled staff allow us to be active in various sectors:

- Automotive industry
- Tool shops
- Trade offices in wear-resistant parts and tools
- Plastics processing industry
- Engineering factories
- Manufacturers of moulds
- Production companies
