Dutch Maritime Marger

In January 2008 the new association ‘Scheepsbouw Nederland’ (Holland Shipbuilding Association) has seen daylight. HME (Holland Marine Equipment Association) and VNSI (Netherlands’ Shipbuilding Industry Association) combined their representative activities. The new combination is established at FME in Zoetermeer, the Netherlands.

The Holland Shipbuilding Association represents about 400 members with a total maritime turnover of € 6 billion, an export volume of € 3.5 billion, and a combined direct workforce of over 25,000 people. The power of the new combination will be noticeable to all stakeholders.
