We are pleased to inform you that we have expanded our range of sealing materials with PTFE sheets and rods.

Virgin PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) is a formable engineering plastic. It is used for sealings in some of the most harsh environments.

In 2020, VR Trade moved to a new location in the port of Rotterdam. This new building offers VR Trade the possibility to increase its stocks and expand its logistics services. But even more important is that at this location the customer-specific services can be further expanded.

We are now able to deliver customised products on top of our standard products. This includes customised gaskets, profiles and rubber mouldings based on a customer’s design. To get an impression of our services we would like to refer you to our company film.

In the coming years we will further develop our services so that we can serve you even better and make you more successful.

If you would like to know more about the services we can provide, please contact our sales department.

New central warehouse opens

By Uncategorized, Uncategorized, Uncategorized, Uncategorized No Comments

VR Trade’s basic approach in dealing with our customers’ technical questions and meeting their specific needs is to focus on providing personalised advice – especially with respect to product selection and logistics. “The products themselves may be generic, but nonetheless, we can distinguish ourselves in the marketplace with our focus on providing peace of mind to our customers. It’s all about problem-free supply chain management to ensure a smooth ordering process and reliable on-time delivery of the right product at the lowest possible price,” says Managing Director Theo Koesen.

In early 2020 VR Trade opened its new central warehouse in the Port of Rotterdam. In the past, we engaged outside parties to handle our logistics, but we now manage the process ourselves. Rotterdam is the logistics hub for all of Europe, and accordingly provides us with good connections to other countries throughout the continent.

“Because we now regulate logistics ourselves, we’re able to better control costs associated with ordering and supply,” he adds. “To achieve that, we make use of a warehouse management system that allows us to maintain our inventories at optimal levels.”

To successfully compete for market share, it is vitally important to have a large supply of product on hand. “We are able to deliver to anywhere in Europe within two days. That means that our representatives can reduce their own inventories and as a result, minimise their costs.


VR Premium sheeting

By Uncategorized No Comments

In 2019 we introduced a new line of high-quality rubber sheeting under the name VR Premium. The VR Premium line includes Neoprene (CR), Nitrile (NBR) and EPDM in various thicknesses.

Each product consists of 100% of the respective polymer. That means that these rubber products are better suited to applications where more tensile strength, abrasion resistance or elongation is required. In addition, the rubbers have higher chemical resistance and can be applied at higher temperatures.

If you are interested in these new products, we will be happy to provide you with samples. You can request them via sales department.
