Company: Van Leeuwen Pipe and Tube Group, Netherlands
Attn: Petra van Zandvoort

Zwijndrecht - the Netherlands, 23 January 2006 The Van Leeuwen Pipe and Tube Group is pleased to announce the establishment of a joint venture with TPCO International, the sales organisation of the largest seamless steel pipe producer in China. A joint venture agreement has been signed to set up a new company for the distribution of piping materials in the Peoples Republic of China (PRC). The new company will operate under the name Van Leeuwen TPCO Pipe and Tube Ltd. The new company will officially start after final approval of the Chinese Authorities.

Through TPCOs comprehensive range of quality seamless pipes and through van Leeuwens strong international network and its excellent logistics and distribution capabilities Van Leeuwen TPCO Pipe and Tube is able to supply material to the various upcoming capital projects. Focus will be on project and later on MRO business in the process industry, such as petrochemical, chemical and other downstream activities. The product range offered is in line with the requirements of the process industry, directly supplied from inventories and inclusive of the quality services required. Intention is to serve both foreign owned companies as well as wholly owned Chinese companies in the PRC.

Although registered in Tianjin, Van Leeuwen TPCO Pipe and Tube will operate its first office and warehouse from (Greater) Shanghai and, if the market conditions allow, quickly expand to other areas of economic interest.

It is the belief of the joint venture partners that at the moment full-fledged service- oriented distribution as it is known in Western dominated economies is not yet present in the PRC. Van Leeuwen and TPCO are confident that they add a welcome service to the marketplace and that it will lead to a successful operation.
