Vision, Mission statement & Core Values
At Shipyard De Hoop, vessels are built on a foundation of quality. All vessels are entirely in-house Dutch designed and built. This guarantees a high-quality, custom-built product, which is developed as a direct result of a flexible and practical approach. Personal attention to the clients’ requirements, listening to their needs, understanding their business model and open communication are fundamental to this process. In doing so, we aim to optimise our clients earning potential with the new vessel.
Shipyard De Hoop’s primary mission is to design and build custom vessels, for both the inland and seagoing markets. The shipyard will be an independent and autonomous partner for their customers and other interested parties (stakeholders).
We will strive to provide maximum added value by employing the in-house core disciplines and by focusing on the latest technology (both in design and production). De Hoop is committed to have a customer-oriented, goal-based approach in which quality and flexibility are the cornerstone.
