In the world of earth-moving and mining industries, there are a number of companies involved in wear-resistant materials, or ‘wear parts’ as these are called. The absolute top in this segment is represented by the Esco brand. This American manufacturer of wear-resistant material is the largest and leading manufacturer in its class. With its products for mining, Esco has a market share of over 80% (worldwide). When Esco started looking for a new distributor for its products, around the mid nineteen nineties, they did not take any chances. Various companies had already approached Esco requesting dealership. After all, Esco is synonymous for quality. After a few visits to the Verhoeven company, it became quite clear to the management of Esco. Verhoeven and Esco were a perfect match. Over the years, this was demonstrated time and again. The two companies complement each other, resulting in market leadership in this segment.
