Our mission

It is our mission to offer the best total and tailor-made solutions in the field of ship building,  ship repair and ship conversion.

 

Royal Niestern Sander was established in 1901 due to a great demand for shipbuilding activities in the Northern Netherlands and the passion of the founders for shipbuilding. Over the years the yard developed more and more specialisms and additional services and grew into the yard that it is now.

 

It is our top priority to be able to help customers as quickly and efficiently as possible. We will do everything we can to satisfy our customers. ‘Unburdening’ customers is what we prefer to do and the drive for everyone is working at Niestern Sander. “Your ship is in good hands with us!”

Our key markets

Health, Safety, Environment & Quality

Health, safety, environment and quality (HSEQ) are all of the highest priority within the shipbuilding industry and within Royal Niestern Sander. They are decisive for the success and quality of our people and activities.
