Your partner in steel for a century

Noesen - Looking to the future

Noesen has been a stable family company since 1920, a reliable partner to all its customers.

Hereunder, you discover some of the milestones of our history.

The world around us is changing. Our customers are growing and evolving. This leads to ever-new challenges. Noesen tries to evolve with them whilst pursuing continuous improvement.

In doing that, we also take a wider perspective and give substance to our future with bold objectives and challenges. Without losing sight of the fact that the company can only be as good as its employees. People take centre stage.

In that fascinating environment, and after every firm handshake of a satisfied customer, I think to myself: 'Let's go for another 100 years'.
