Damen Shipyards Group has grown from a single shipyard in 1927 to one that today operates more than 35 shipyards and related companies worldwide. Damen changed the world of shipbuilding in 1969 by introducing standardized designs for the construction of tugs, workboats and other commercial craft. This practice of modular building principles has brought international recognition and has consolidated the Group’s development and success to its present position as one of the world’s leading independent shipbuilders. Damen has a rich tradition of naval shipbuilding with our original navy roots stemming back nearly 135 years.
