The origin of Technotrading
Technotrading was founded in 1985 by Frans Banga. Frans was a tool maker, he was particularly skilled in the production of pneumatic tools. He decided to concentrate on the production and sales of pneumatic tools to the maritime industry. This proved to be an excellent decision, the company thrived and was growing rapidly. Soon it became impossble to continue with the own production and Technotrading became a technical trading company, importing tools out of the whole world.
In 2011, when Frans passed away Technotrading was sold to Jeroen van Waveren, the current owner. Jeroen already had more than 25 years experience in the maritime industry. He modernised the company, he introduced a new ERP-system, new procedures and new products. This boosted the sales and the growth of Technotrading. As a result of that the team of Technotrading grew from 5 persons to the existing team of 17. Nowadays Technotrading is an important company in the market for industrial maintenance.
On November 1st, 2016 Technotrading welcomed its sister-company Technosafety, a company specialised in safety and protection equipment. Initially the company was based in Oud-Beijerland, in 2020 Technosafety moved to Schiedam and is now located in the same buidling as Technotrading.
At the end of 2016, Technotrading entered into a
strategic partnership with Seabay. In the partnership , Seabay handles the
sales and logistics of Technotrading 's products in Algeciras and Las Palmas
and Technotrading takes care of the availability of the products at those
locations and the technical know - how.
