what we do
WHAT ABOUT THAT SHIP IN THE LOGO?
Over the past 115 years, our company’s logo has undergone numerous changes, but the central symbol of the Halve Maen has always been present. The Halve Maen was a significant ship in Dutch history, particularly during the early years of the 17th century, when it was utilized by the Dutch East India Company for exploration and trade. The ship is most notably associated with Henry Hudson, an English explorer which was working as captain for the Dutch, who sailed it in 1609 during his search for a new route to Asia.
Hudson’s journey led him to discover the Hudson River, which he explored and mapped, and he is credited with being the first European to do so. The discovery of the Hudson River was a critical moment in history, as it paved the way for the transatlantic trade that would eventually become a significant economic force. The Halve Maen’s association with this historic event makes it our symbol of Dutch innovation, exploration and trade.
In addition to its historical significance, the Halve Maen is also a symbol of the relationship between the Netherlands and the United States. Today, the US is a crucial trade partner for our company, with many of our customers and suppliers located there. As a result, the Halve Maen continues to hold great importance for us and serves as a reminder of our shared history.
