About us

Torpedo Nederland

The Torpedo Group is a strong player in the metal industry - both locally and internationally. The organisation is made up of two operating companies, each of which specialises in different metalworking disciplines. Torpedo Machining is your ideal partner when it comes to machining and the construction of metal components, combined with (heavy-duty) welding and assembly, while Buigstaal Tube Bending specialises in the bending and processing of metal pipes and tubes. Thanks to the close partnership between these two companies, we are able to operate as a one-stop shop for customers.



Torpedo Machining was established in 1963 in the port of IJmuiden and at that time went by the name of Van der Wel. It was originally set up to carry out repair work on fishing boats. The next step in the company’s development came when it started providing services for the company then known as Hoogovens (now Tata Steel). Today Torpedo Machining serves customers from various branches of heavy industry throughout the Netherlands and Europe. Buigstaal Tube Bending opened its doors in 1934 and has since developed into an internationally renowned specialist in the (cold) bending and reshaping of pipes and tubes.



Our operating companies Torpedo Machining and Buigstaal Tube Bending are able to process all types of metal to create components and semi-finished or finished products. All our products are delivered ready for use – no further processing is needed. As we can offer all metalworking disciplines under one roof and there is a close partnership between the two organisations, we are able to operate as a one-stop shop in the broadest sense. We will be happy to take on the challenge presented by your specific project!
