Steelwood has been founded in 1999 by Ralph van Seumeren (founding family member and former shareholder of Mammoet) and originated as a specialized supplier of road plates and crane mats for all the lifting and transport works of Mammoet. Because of this, Steelwood has created a strong specialism in the petrochemical/energy sector and in civil and infrastructure works, where we have experienced the importance of flexibility and safety. As a result, we have been able to acquire dominant positions in sectors where these aspects are essential, for instance at refineries (TOTAL and Shell), working under and near power lines, and at the construction and maintenance of power plants.
Shortly after its founding, Steelwood's services have been used in a wide array of sectors including companies active in the building industry, ground- and water works, road construction, events, festivals, and offshore industry.
Since many years Steelwood has an outstanding relationship with Fievet Transport, also a family company, which enables Steelwood that nothing is impossible. Steelwood is expanding its business rapidly, both domestic and international. Steelwood is a highly valued supplier of steel road plates and azobe crane mats because of its flexibility (operational 24 hours a day, 7 days a week), large stocks and fast delivery possibilities combined with a personal and proper service.
