Our History

The roots of our company go back to the year 1875 with a steel trading company named H.E. Oving. From those early roots the foundation of ODS B.V. emerged through 1972 with amalgamation of H.E. Oving with two other organisations named W.B. Diepeveen & Co and Struycken & Co NV.

A department ‘Instrumentation’ has been active in trading flow instruments for gas and liquid applications since the early 1950’s. For this purpose a dedicated service and calibration group was established with their own NMI certified calibration facility in the same period.

Due to changing market situation and client demands for delivering complete integrated metering solutions, ODS Metering Systems was established in 1990’s providing custody transfer flow metering systems for the oil & gas industry. Our long history and more than 65 years of operational experience have resulted in metering solutions that are based on field-proven technologies and results of sustained developmental efforts.
