De Vlamboog, the manufacturer: top quality Made in the Netherlands
De Vlamboog is proud to be recognized worldwide as a leading manufacturer of top quality electrode holders and gouging torches. These products, manufactured in The Netherlands, are also known by their brand names Samson, Optimus, Victory, Progress and Flair. These Vlamboog-made products are distributed internationally through welding specialist, technical wholesalers, MRO and OEM companies. Through these channels, our products end up where they have their highest return on investment: places where safety and continuity count, such as shipyards, offshore companies, ship suppliers, construction, mining, foundries and dozens of other metal working sectors.

De Vlamboog, the trading company: a reliable partner with world wide logistics
Welding cable, working and welding gloves, welding sets, dry rod ovens, welding glass, tungsten grinders and gouging electrodes, welding blankets, full face masks, welding connectors, face shields, goggles and spectacles, PAPR systems, mouth caps, hearing protection, industrial ventilators, paint sticks, smooth cutters... we source thousands of products from carefully selected suppliers in and outside Europe. We go back a long way with many of our suppliers, which helps us in our continuous strive for quality and compliance. Vlamboog is a privileged partner of many A-brands such as Optrel, Phoenix, Ejendals, Markal, ATG, StrongHand, Moldex, Americ or Hi-Temp. However, being a one-stop supplier with a high service level, we also supply alternative brands.

De Vlamboog as your one-stop supplier: maximum service and support
For many of our customers welding accessories and PPE aren't their core business. These product groups are often a relatively small part of their total purchasing and sales but they require a disproportionate amount of time and energy to source. Everyone should do what he or she does best: why not outsource these products to De Vlamboog? Together we can define a winning proposal to meet your needs and wishes. Customer specific stocks, private label packaging, overnight delivery, product availability and warranty guarantees... there's nothing that can not be discussed. De Vlamboog will proof to be a dedicated partner!

  

De Vlamboog : from shipyard welder to world wide supplier.
De Vlamboog's history dates back to the 1930's, when Jan Bouke Batstra, a Frisian welder came to Amsterdam to be a shipyard welder. After the war Mr. Batstra started developing a new generation of electrode holders. In 1948 he received his first patents, European and American, and De Vlamboog grew into a nationally known supplier of electrode holders. In the 1970's de Vlamboog seized to be a family-owned company and became part of the Intersafe-Groeneveld Group, a major European player in the field of Personal Protection Equipment. This helped De Vlamboog to grow into a complete one-stop supplier of both welding accessories ánd PPE towards welding distributors and technical wholesalers worldwide. In 1994 De Vlamboog received its ISO 9002 certification. In 2001 De Vlamboog and the Intersafe Groeneveld Group became a part of the Holland America Line Investment Group, one of Europe's largest (maritime) investment funds. Nowadays, 67 years young, De Vlamboog is going stronger than ever. With a widening global customer network and a huge potential for our products and services in several distribution channels and end user segments, we look ahead to a bright future for our company.
