About us

Van Thiel United was founded in 1842, in Beek en Donk, the Netherlands.

Originally, Van Thiel United manufactured fastening materials and many other products made of steel wire, until a scaffolding coupler developed in the 1950s released. This coupler known as the THIEL wedge coupler is still relevant

After the invention of the wedge coupler, Van Thiel United expanded its product range with other scaffolding materials and developed many groundbreaking concepts such as the Tube-Lock concept. This ultimately led to the establishment of a complete product range to support traditional scaffolding.

Throughout the years, Van Thiel has become a well known and respected name in the scaffolding industry.

In the year 2000 the decision was made to solely focus on the development and production of scaffolding materials. The fastening materials division was subsequently sold. To this day, Van Thiel United only produces scaffolding material in its own factory in Beek en Donk.

We are continuously investing in optimising our manufacturing process with the latest technology. We are proud to say that we still produce all our products in the Netherlands to this day. This gives us the opportunity to only work with the best EU certified raw materials and the most skilled operators. Resulting in products of the best constant quality.




For the future we commit to continiously develop our range of products as well as to maintain our manufacturing standards.
