Damen Marine Components (DMC) designs and manufactures a range of premium systems that are vital for the propulsion, manoeuvring and performance of vessels engaged in all types of maritime activity. These include short sea, deep sea, offshore, ocean-going, inland waterways, naval vessels, and superyachts. Our primary products are nozzles, winches, controls and steering- and rudders systems, with the last two categories sold under the Van der Velden trademark. We mainly work with third-party ship building and repair yards and distributors of maritime equipment around the world.
Over 150 years of existence, DMC has established a reputation for producing advanced, high-quality and reliable products based on its in-house engineering capabilities and continuous feedback from customers, third party naval architects and maritime research institutes. While offering a comprehensive range of standards within each product class, we also work with our clients to provide customised and semi-customised solutions to meet specific requirements. The high profile DMC engineering team with European naval architects is focused on providing optimal manoeuvrability designs for every type of vessel, compliant to any class society.
With ISO 9001-2015 and ISO 14001-2015 certification for all in-house production facilities in the Netherlands, Poland and China consistent quality is guaranteed. Our commitment to R&D and continuous improvement in both design and production processes ensures that all our output combines proven systems with the latest technological advances.
In addition to a global sales network ready to work with customers to help them find the optimal solutions for their vessels, we also offer a 24/7 worldwide support network to ensure that our products deliver maximum performance and minimal downtime.
