Sealution – Sealing Technology Engineers
Your preferred partner in sealing technology. The knowledge centre of turn-key sealing solutions including rubber, silicone and plastic components.
Sealution was founded 01-07-2023 when NDS-Seals merged with Andelco Industrial Products. Both companies have found the ideal partner in each other with whom a healthy business continuity is guaranteed. The synergies resulting from this merger lead to a reduction in supply chain risks and greater efficiency in business processes.
They didn’t know each other a year ago. But when Jan Knipscheer and JaapJan Berghuijs spoke to each other in May 2022, their career paths turned out to show a number of striking similarities.
For example, they both have a similar company: a producer of rubber and silicone parts for central heating boilers, coffee machines, heat pumps and other technical applications. Jan Knipscheer did this at Andelco in Geldrop and JaapJan Berghuijs at Sealution in Almere. Another similarity was that they both had a partner in the company who retired, leaving them suddenly alone at the helm.
So both entrepreneurs were looking for a new partner; JaapJan Berghuijs was looking for a company to take over and Jan Knipscheer was looking for a new partner to take over the shares of his departing partner.
They could have been each other’s competitors, but still did not know each other. It turned out that the companies had divided the market evenly: Andelco was a supplier to, among others, a number of central heating boiler builders and NDS to precisely several others. It also turned out that both companies serve a different part of the market: NDS supplies more high-end parts whereas Andelco the slightly less critical parts. That is why there is a lot of added value for both companies and their customers. The perfect match.
December 2022, the decision was made: NDS-Seals took over the shares of Jan Knipscheer’s former partner and Knipscheer himself transferred his shares in the company to Sealution. In May 2023 they have officially announced their new company name: Sealution.
The company acquisition, in this way, has been completed to the satisfaction of both parties, because of a match on a personal level as well. They both have the same view of the new company. And both entrepreneurs say they are drawing energy from this new development.
“And we’re not done with the acquisitions yet,” say both. “Now that we’ve seen the benefits of the synergies between our companies, there’s a good chance we’ll make more of these acquisitions.”
In the future, Sealution will have a broader base and will be able to do even more for the customer, such as:
- Expanded product portfolio including plastic items
- Complete sealing solutions of rubber, silicone and plastic materials
- In-house laboratory
- Access to high-quality own certified materials
