BIS Both Industrial Services is specialised in the engineering and supply of mechanical equipment for cooling towers and air coolers. With more than 35 years' experience, we can select the most optimal design of high-quality components for any installation in service. Our customers are found in the chemical, petrochemical, steel and offshore industries, as well as the power generating sector and engineering companies.
Mechanical equipment for cooling towers and air coolers
BIS Both Industrial Services BV is involved in a niche market. We generally introduce ourselves as engineers and suppliers of high-quality mechanical equipment for cooling towers and air coolers. We have been supplying to both the European original equipment (cooling tower) manufacturers, as well as end-users worldwide in the petrochemical industry, steel mills and power plants since 1987, with fans (up to 40ft), fan stacks (GFRP), electric motors, gear boxes and composite drive shafts (thousands of them).
We obtained favourable buying conditions with a number of suppliers in the US, Europe and Asia and have representatives in Thailand, Korea, Germany, England and the Middle East. Besides the cooling tower business, we also supply these components in related industries. In the offshore industry, we supply right angle gearboxes for fire fighting installations (20-5000+ HP) and barge pumps to packagers and operators. We also have couplings (from short coupled flexible to long composite drive shafts) for nearly all mechanical connections.
JH Projects BV - suppliers of industrial goods
As customers kept requesting additional services and products that were sometimes out of the scope of supply of BIS Both, a separate engineering/trading company was established in 2010. JH Projects supplies capital industrial goods of high-quality to medium-sized and large industries. We add an engineering component if necessary, provide necessary documentation (installation manuals, all types of required certificates, custom documents) and arrange shipping of the goods.
Projects carried out by this company are, amongst others:
- Skid mounted AC units
- CHP units
- Forklift trucks
- Large volumes of base material like piping
- ALU sheet
Because of our volume, we have favourable buying conditions with many suppliers in the US, Europe and Asia. What's more, as our overhead costs are small, we can offer very competitive prices. We are also flexible in our delivery terms. Goods can be picked up from our warehouse in the Rotterdam region or we can deliver DDU in Russia and organise all necessary documentation (customs, certificates (Ghost), etc.).
Although, because of the pricing advantage, we have our favourite suppliers. Nearly all makes of components available in this industry can be obtained if necessary, since we operate independently. Our added-value is, apart from price advantage, that the selected components are optimally tuned together and that we deliver on-site (and swift). Our customers are found 80% outside Holland and 30% outside Europe. As well as many medium sized companies, below are some examples of our customer base:
- Petrochemical: AirProducts, AirLiquide, AkzoNobel, Amoco, BASF, Bayer, BP, ConocoPhillips, DowChemical, DSM Chemicals, ELF Petroland, EXXON, General Electric, INEOS, Lyondell, Mobil Oil, Monsanto, Sabic, Saudi Aramco, Shell, Solvay Chemicals
- Steel: Alcan, Corus, Daewo, Hoechst, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries,Tata Steel, ThyssenKrupp
- Offshore: Gaz de France, NAM, PlacidOil, Texaco, Wintershall
- Power generation: EON, Matra, Ruhrgas, PowerGen, National Power
- OEMs: ABB, Ansaldo, BalckeDurr, Bronswerk, GEA, GM, Hamon, Howden, NEMA, SPX, Yolyapi
In short, BIS Both Industrial; Services BV and JH Projects BV combine engineering, procurement and logistic services for quality capital goods for the petrochemical, steeland power generation industries.
