A special milestone, our 75th anniversary!

In 1946, the Nederlandsche Scheepsbouw Export Centrale was founded. First as a sales and contracting organisation, later with a focus on financing the maritime sector. This history in the maritime world and our knowledge of lending products are at the heart of our company, with the aim to make the difference. We can proudly say that we have already supported the maritime sector for 75 years!

In honor of our 75th anniversary we will use our special anniversary logo this year. The coming year stands for more growth, positive developments and we are working on a number of new initiatives.

Collaboration pays off. We hope to keep on supporting the maritime sector for many years more and reach more special milestones!
