Home General Organisation

Kobout has been a total supplier of fasteners since 1979. As one of the strongest players on the Dutch market, we rely on highly qualifi ed, service-oriented personnel, excellent stock management, first-rate logistics and irreproachable quality. Kobout has an extensive list of clients in trade, industry and construction. Kobout supplies an extensive package of steel and stainless steel fasteners. With more than 25,000 different products, 13,300 m2 of warehouse space and over 90 employees, we have 1 motto: we are there for you.

Kobout: it’s more than fasteners.

Our aim is to make life easier for you; quality, service and a good price are our tools. Logistic perfection has become a keyword here because, if you can supply 25,000 products from stock, an efficiently organised logistics centre and automated order handling are a must. In our logistics centre, traditional shelving and fl ow racks provide room for more than 6,000 pallets and around 40 hypermodern goods lifts (Hänel) mean that incoming and outgoing deliveries are more than 50% automated.

Alongside the very active role we play on the Dutch market, about 30% of turnover is generated via export countries in Europe and that means about 200 tonnes of goods a week are received, processed and dispatched.

More than 70 excellently trained employees are ready to respond quickly and flexibly to the client’s specifi c wishes. We have, for example, our own trucks for regional transport and our collection desk is very busy. In addition to having our own packaging department, we work closely with suppliers, so that special packaging, assortment boxes and sets can also be supplied quickly.

CSR
Our interpretation of Corporate Social Responsibility is summarised by the motto ‘Take good care of others’: our cooperation with ELEOS ensures that we can offer worthwhile occupation in our Metal department to people who are otherwise unable to take part in the regular labour process. ELEOS is a mental health organisation.
