Huisman is a globally operating company with extensive experience in the design and manufacturing of heavy construction equipment for world’s leading on- and offshore companies. Founded in 1929 and originally a steel construction company – Huisman joined forces with engineering company ITREC in 1987 to develop products entirely under own management, from concept to installation.
Our product range can be subdivided into six main categories: Cranes, Pipelay Equipment, Drilling Equipment, Winches, Vessel Designs and Specials and varies from stand-alone components to highly engineered integrated systems.
Our production is divided between our production facilities in The Netherlands, China and the Czech Republic. The construction of our new production facility in Santa Catarina, Brazil, has started in 2012. Additional sales, engineering and service offices are located in Norway, Slovakia, Brazil, Singapore and the USA.
The equipment delivered by Huisman is often the critical main equipment onboard and its reliability is of utmost importance to our clients. Delivering high quality products has therefore been a key company value since the establishment of our company. As a result, our equipment is internationally known for its high quality and reliability during operations. It meets the most stringent performance criteria and is certified by recognised authorities such as Lloyd’s, DNV, API, TüV etc.
A dedicated worldwide operating service team of skilled professionals is on stand-by to provide advice, training and service support before, during and after installation and delivery. Our service network is managed from Huisman in The Netherlands but our local service offices in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), Houston (USA) and Singapore are on stand-by to provide all service support on location as well as by remote access.
For training purposes, Huisman Global Services founded the Huisman Academy in 2011. This Schiedam-based training facility is used to support Huisman clients in operating and maintaining the equipment in the most effective and safe way.
