YOUR PARTNER IN
We design and manufacture a range of premium systems that are vital for the propulsion, manoeuvring and performance of vessels engaged in all types of maritime activity. These include short sea, fishery, dredging, ocean-going, inland waterways and naval vessels, and superyachts. Our primary products are nozzles, winches, controls and steering and rudder systems. The last two categories are sold under the Van der Velden trademark. As well as supplying Damen’s global network of shipyards, we work closely with third-party ship building and repair yards and distributors of maritime equipment around the world.
ISO 9001-2015 and ISO 14001-2015 certification for all in-house production facilities in the Netherlands, Poland and China guarantees consistent quality. Our commitment to R&D and continuous improvement in both design and production processes ensures that all our output combines proven systems with the latest technological advances.
In addition to a global sales network ready to work with customers to help them find the optimal solutions for their vessels, we also offer a 24/7 worldwide support network to ensure that our products deliver maximum performance and minimal downtime. We are member of the Damen Shipyards Group.
