SixPointTwo was founded in 2009 by two young Dutch entrepreneurs who wanted to respond to new developments in the semi-finished metal market. Major changes are taking place in the needs and wishes of customers in complex supply chains. For example, customers want to do more with fewer suppliers, and they increasingly prefer nearshoring over offshoring. In addition, they set up parallel supply chains, which allow faster response to specific demands. This ensures a shorter time-to-market.
