Company history

Vlierodam runs through the family. Mr. Bas Vliegenthart started in Rotterdam more than 50 years ago and up to today two generations followed in his footsteps. But besides the family also the employees from now and then are a huge part of our history and future.

Since 1959 many things has changed. We have grown in what we do and so has our capacity and services. But one thing has never been subjected to these changes, our mentality; we guarantee you the most dedicated service, highest quality and the most suitable handling of your orders.

We hope to see you soon!


Nowadays it is required to provide all towing-, hoisting-, and lifting equipment with certificate. Certification can be done on several levels.

Manufacturer EKH certificate; we provide lifting-, hoisting- and towing equipment including a manufacturer certificate. This document will be based not only on the materials but as well as on the application of these items. Therefore we guarantee you all items are not only certified according the current European Standards but also suitable for your applications.

3rd Party Certificate

Third Party certificate; if required your equipment can also be provided with a Third Party certificate. This means that a external (independent) organization will witness products, if applicable proofload or destruction test on sample and production of these materials. In general, the customer decides which organization is required. After approval a certificate will be made by the concerning surveyor. Understated you will find some examples of Third Parties we are used to work with:

Lloyd's Register of Shipping
