The Amnitec team includes specialists in their field, from coded welders who fabricate high pressure metallic hoses for space applications to trained and qualified inspectors who ensure that every product is rigorously tested before it leaves our facility.

Our Netherlands facility is based in the city of Rotterdam, home to Europe’s largest port. The team has significant expertise and experience in metallic and fluoropolymer hose assembly. It also serves as our European manufacturing centre for composite hose and is ideally located to service the busy port with quick-turn orders for composite cargo hose assemblies. The supply of metallic and rubber bellows and expansion joints is another key area of expertise. Click here to contact the Rotterdam team.
