Merrem & la Porte's involvement in Triclad
Merrem & la Porte's involvement in the marketing of aluminium / steel transition joints stems from having been originally appointed as agents in the Benelux countries for explosion bonded plates manufactured by Nobelclad, France subsidiary of Dynamic Materials Corporation (DMC). When it was perceived that the Netherlands being the shipbuilding nation that they were and still are, there should be a significant and growing market in Holland for STJ’s, Merrem & la Porte was asked to trial market the product. The sales were so successful that, it was a logical step to increasingly source STJ’s for world markets. Selling either direct, or through agents / distributors in close contact with the national shipbuilding industry, Merrem & la Porte has since been the global and exclusive outlet for DMC produced STJ’s.
