Our Story

The history of ILS goes back to 1974. ILS started as a small warehouse in the port of Antwerp selling all kinds of materials for vessels and has now become a world player specialized in cargo securing materials.

Cargo securing materials for vessels and towballs for vehicles? That’s right. Back then the owner of ILS helped a French company active in the towball business to set foot on the UK market. ILS took over the activities of the UK company the French were working with and the rest is history. Since 1992 ILS is active on the towball market both for clients in the OE market as in the aftermarket.

We can proudly say we have almost 30 years of experience in the towball business. In Antwerp we have our main office and warehouse. (Our main office and warehouses are located in the port of Antwerp. Antwerp is located in the heart of Europe and is the second-largest seaport in Europe.) Since 1992 we work together with a renowned towball manufacturer in South-Africa guaranteeing each and every towball meets customer specifications and quality requirements.

We offer our standard towballs available from stock and we make customized models produced according to your specifications and drawings.
