Damen is an international shipyard group but at its heart, there is still a family company. We operate in every niche market where we see an opportunity to improve, innovate or invest. In everything we develop, we always aim for what our customers need and what they wish for. That counts for our building activities as well as our services. We listen carefully to our customers and we invest a great deal in innovation, research and development. That’s why we’re simply able to build better boats.
In 1927 Damen was established by two brothers. Now, Damen Shipyards has a leading position in shipbuilding with more than 6,000 employees and a presence in 35 countries. Damen is a multinational company that has never lost its family values or its deep respect for its maritime heritage.
