About McNetiq & Contact

Since 2007 Bas and Edwin have been working together on different applications of magnets, from a passion for the ‘magical’ operation of magnets.
Originally, they focused on magnetic tools for the climbing market. They developed 'kleefklimmen' (adhesive climbing): an innovative technique used by climbers to climb steel surfaces – like Spiderman. In 2014 they founded McNetiq B.V. to market the Controlock® magnet technology.

Magnets have been fascinating me as long as I can remember. Permanent magnets are reliable. By applied force measurement we can now use them for much more purposes, which is wonderful.


Edwin van der Heide
marketer and entrepreneur in innovations.

A magnet is an inexhaustible source of power that does not require any energy. We should do a lot more with it!
