About us

Verwaayen+Crielaers B.V. was founded in 1908. Through the past decades we have been specialising in importing and trading of mineral salts (for applications in food- and pharmaceutical industries) and of pharmaceutical raw and auxiliary materials. Our company represents a number of renowned European facturies and suppliers. For a survey please follow the link “agents“. Although our core business is composed of activities on the Dutch market, we have also built a detailed European network.

Not only for abovementioned materials our company plays an important role on the Dutch market, also for a number of special products like shellac, tannic acid, ichthammol etc.. and for services like micronization or distillation.

The management of our company is in the hands of Rob Verwaayen. Since the establishment of our company he represents the third generation of Verwaayen. Having a small but solid team, we are able to react quickly to signals from the market, being flexible and accurate the same time.

Finally the steady relationships we have with our logistic partners allow us to deliver the materials quickly and safely to our customers.

This picture shows the splendid  location of our office. Rural, but very centrally situated in Holland at the same time: very close to motorway A15  Rotterdam – Germany and only a few minutes away from motorway A2, the most important north-south route in our country.
