Damen Marine Components (DMC) and Van der Velden Marine Systems (VDVMS) recently announced a merger. As of 1st January 2018 the two companies are operating together as Damen Marine Components Netherlands (DMC NL).
DMC has been operating ever since the early eighties of the last century in the Damen Shipyards Group, whilst VDVMS has been operating as an independent part of the Damen Shipyards Group’s components division since 2013. So in many ways the merger represents a continuation of a successful working relationship. However, the decision was taken to bring the two companies closer together in order to enhance performance.
Propeller Nozzles, Rudders and Special Marine Constructions
Damen Marine Components has a long tradition in shipbuilding. In recent decades, DMC has specialised in the design and production of nozzles for various types of ships. DMC supplied more than 8,000 nozzles for propeller diameters ranging from 500 up to 10,000 mm. Apart from nozzles, all kinds of special shipbuilding components are being produced for various shipyards and shipowners. All marine constructions are manufactured at one of our own production sites in Holland, Poland or China. Next to these products, DMC now has started to develop and construct special winches, such as Render Recovery and Towing winches. High quality, reliability and short delivery times at a market-oriented price are our guiding principles.
