About Export

ODS, metal & more

ODS is synonymous with more than 200 years’ knowledge of and expertise in non-ferrous products, steel products, and materials for the construction sector and industry.

ODS – one of the largest multi-metal distributors in the Netherlands – offers an extremely comprehensive product range, streamlined logistics, and a wide range of machining processes. ODS is a subsidiary of the German Klöckner & Co concern. Although ODS might initially appear to pivot on metal, in practice our core business is comprised of a cast-iron combination of quality, engineering, and service.


Our many years’ experience with all leading manufacturers and suppliers enables us to maintain the highly quality of our product range. In addition, our quality is assured by a permanently-monitored quality system based on NEN-ISO 9001: 2008. This system is issued by Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance. Moreover our products are supplied in accordance with the prevailing international standards and, if so required, accompanied by a 2.2, 3.1 or 3.2 material certificate.


In addition to our Head Offices in Barendrecht, ODS also has warehouses in Barendrecht, Uitgeest, Almelo and Ridderkerk. These warehouses are located close to the ports of Rotterdam and Antwerp – and are close to the Ruhr region.
