NEVAT is a trade association with 200 ambitious leading suppliers as members. The association is alive with activity and is frequently occupied with three main themes. NEVAT organises national and international network, trade and knowledge-based activities, where members can establish contacts with new clients, both national and international. It is up to the members themselves to transform contacts arranged by NEVAT into orders. NEVAT also promotes contact between its members, which can lead to joint cooperative ventures.
DutchForm is the Dutch association for making forms, models, moulds, stamps and dies. What these companies have in common is that they produce the forms that other companies use to make products. The company making the form often therefore underpins the products that we use in our daily lives. Whether it is a pair of spectacles, a plastic cup, an engine or a mobile phone: every product starts with a shape. But for series production in particular, it is even more important to have a form (tools such as a mould, model or die) for that shape.
