Company Profile

Working together

Metaal Flex Nederland B.V., founded in February 1999, is an international detachment (recruitment) agency that is engaged in the detachment of qualified and strongly motivated personnel. Our personnel is born in one of the countries who are part of the European community or have the nationality of one of these countries.

Due to the fact that the demand for qualified and unskilled personnel in the Netherlands is a growing market during the past decennium, Metaal Flex started, as one of the first international recruitment agencies, to hire foreign employees.

At first Metaal Flex was mainly concentrated on the metal and steel industry; something which still reflects in her name. Although our company is still strongly represented in this industry, we have broadened our field of business. This moment we provide qualified employees for production and packaging work, recycling of refrigerators, cleaning firms, wood- and furniture factories, ground and demolishing works.

Metaal Flex distinguishes herself from the other international detachment agencies by the presence of her affiliates branch offices in Poland and Czech. After the summer of 2001 Metaal Flex will open her new office in Greece. This way Metaal Flex is able to match her database of qualified candidates with the vacancies from her clients.

“Working together” is the motto of our company. This makes Metaal Flex the business partner for you and your company.

If you are looking for qualified personnel or if you are you interested in a solution to cover temporarily shortage of employees, please do not hesitate to contact our company or fill in our application form.


The term detachment cannot be found back in Dutch law books. The term detachment is used for different labour situations, in which employees are employed by one employer, but actually have to work at another employers company. In this case there are 3 parties involved:

1) the employee
2) the formal employer with whom the employee has signed an employment agreement
3) the employer/company for whom the employee is actually working

In this regard a detachment agency is different from an employment agency, where people can be hired for a, in most cases, short period of time and where there is no legal commitment between the employee and agency.

Metaal Flex Nederland B.V. normally detaches her employees for a minimum period of 3 months. However, based on our experience, we have learned that a lot of companies have a desperate need for extra hands on during season-related periods or to handle short-term projects. If these kind of situations seems common business for you, please feel free to contact one of our Relation Managers to discuss the possibilities for your company.
