FACILITIES Posted by Barkmeijer On Wednesday October 21st, 2015 0 Comments Over the last two decades globalization has triggered one of the most significant changes in the shipbuilding industry for shipyards and suppliers. The shipyard is no longer isolated within a single site, but extends and integrates building, supply and management activities across many companies and locations worldwide. Because of Barkmeijer’s long history, the company has built a vast network of suppliers and affiliate shipyards. Basically Barkmeijer has been running an extended shipyard for over 165 years. The extended shipyard means Barkmeijer can easily increase its capabilities for the building, maintenance, and repair of ships larger than 135 meter whenever this is required. There are many advantages to this concept. Barkmeijer has a solid home base at the Stroobos facilities, but can scale up with ease, offering on-time delivery and the highest quality on all types of ships, whether being an aluminum crew tender or a 5000 tons dredger, produced on-site or virtually on any other location.
