Niron Staal Amsterdam B.V.
Niron Staal Amsterdam B.V. is a specialised steel construction and machining company. We are located in the harbour of Amsterdam - thus guaranteeing deep-water access (North Sea Channel) and efficient flight options (Schiphol Amsterdam Airport).
The combination of steel construction and machining allows us to operate on large-scale (heavy construction work), small-scale (accurate machining at extremely low tolerances) and everything in-between - hence our motto: ‘Experience the perfection’.
