In 1927 a small Dutch shipyard was established by two brothers. Since buying the company from his father in 1969, Kommer Damen has built up DAMEN Shipyards Group into one of the world’s largest and most financially stable shipbuilders. The company has delivered more than 5,000 vessels and has a € 2 billion annual turnover, but DAMEN has never lost its family values or its deep respect for its maritime heritage.
“Sharing a passion means a commitment to the best engineering and design possible.”
Today, the Damen family are very much an active part of the management team, including Chairman Kommer Damen and Arnout Damen, Chief Commercial Officer.
