It soon became clear that all the local markets within Europe had varying needs regarding the assortment and marketing approach. Van Merksteijn had to switch its strategy to set up service centres in various European countries. These service centres, also called Systems companies, sell fencing panels from their parent company in addition to other accompanying local fencing products such as poles, brackets, ports etc. There are currently 11 of these service centres, but that number is rapidly growing.

Through these dynamic and well organized Systems companies, Van Merksteijn can quickly respond to changing needs in the local markets.

In recent years, there have been many shifts in the demand for fencing panels. The demand used to be for traditional zinc plated pieces, but nowadays the demand is shifting towards wire panels welded from galvanised wire. Van Merksteijn International strategically anticipated this change in demand, and in 2012, the Company invested in a private wire and hot-powdercoating line. This has enabled Van Merksteijn to continue to serve its customers in the future.

So for now and the future, Van Merksteijn is here for you!
