Supporting companies

All-round support

Damen Shiprepair & Conversion (DSC) has built valuable and long-lasting partnerships with several support companies. These relationships help us to provide a better service to our clients and cover everything from anchor, chain and steel construction to engineering capabilities. Please find a list of our own Damen support companies below.

Our network, however, is not limited to Damen support companies; our DSC yards have maintained excellent relationships with suppliers and subcontractors throughout the years. Our partners help us to offer short lead times, quick response times and competitive pricing, and to keep our clients as unencumbered as possible.
