Company Profile

Huisman is a globally operating company with extensive experience in the design and manufacturing of heavy construction equipment. 


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.



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 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.
