In 1933, Havam B.V. was established in Venlo, The Netherlands, a technical import and trade company in automotive materials and industrial products. During the seventies a seperate division was set up for the industrial components and systems: Havam Industrial Division. Over time this Industrial Division more and more defined its own profile as its function extended beyond just supplying industrial products. 

IPAR as worthy industry partner
Growing understanding of the various industrial markets with their market specific issues and special desires meant Industrial Division became a full-grown partner for the entire Dutch industry market. To give this division an individual corporate profile in 1991 IPAR Industrial Partners b.v. was established. In its company name is included the core business of IPAR, namely that IPAR is most and for all an industrial partner, working from the perspective of the customer.


IPAR in the Benelux
At the end of 2007 international expansion was established by taking over the industrial activities of Van Heck Interpièces, formerly Interpièces-Industrie, in Vilvoorde, Belgium. Since then IPAR is actively covering the entire Benelux market, with various customers in all three countries. 

IPAR is part of Sator Holding. Sator Holding and its operating companies together form a highly ambitious and rapidly expanding organisation, for which innovation is the key word and which excels in logistics, highly innovative information systems and progressive marketing concepts.
