Talent is of course, the most important resource of any enterprise. The wealth of talent at Damen Shipyards Changde means we can innovate, add value to our products and in turn, make sure we have a sustainable business. With decades of know-how and experience behind us, the highest quality, international standards are ensured. The Damen quality standards are evident wherever we build vessels in the world.

Certification is carried out by leading classification societies such as Lloyd’s Register, DNV and Bureau Veritas and this stimulates us to implement even more far reaching, in-house quality programmes to enhance all company processes. However, we do not take our performance for granted. Damen always endeavours to exceed our current level of performance to ensure we remain ahead of our competitors.

And even though the standardised concept is fundamental to Damen, we can also customise any vessel according to customers’ wishes.

Damen Shipyards Changde is supported and backed by all the other Damen companies and the group headquarters in Gorinchem in the Netherlands. Damen’s after-sales service and support is highly respected. Our customers benefit from having the support of the whole group and they can choose from a broad-ranging service portfolio.

Corporate Culture Concept

Our aim is simply to build the best, top quality vessels at competitive prices and with quick delivery times. Damen Shipyards Changde has a very special corporate culture, combining the best of Eastern and Western enterprise values. And indeed, even though the Damen Shipyards Group has some 8,000 employees, Damen is still a family-owned company with a deep respect for the traditional values of the maritime world.


Whether it's a simple question or you need assistance with your Damen product, we believe great things can start with a small conversation.
