ESMA’s history

ESMA was founded in 1968 from Stork Werkspoor Diesel, as supplier of material packages for the newbuilding of complete seagoing ships. Stork Werkspoor was one of the world largest manufacturers of medium and large size diesel engines, in those days based in Amsterdam and later merged with Wärtsila.

During the 70’s and 80’s ESMA participated in the development and construction of many shipyard in Europe as well as in the Middle East region and Africa. Still till this date ESMA maintains very close ties with all of these yards. In this era also our branch in Portugal started its operations. Even today, ESMA is present as an independent supplier of machinery on the Portuguese market.

During the 90’s the initial activities of supplying complete packages and design for shipbuilding and other new building projects extended with the capabilities to supply all kind of materials just in time all over the world and ESMA became also a dedicated supplier for the global ship repair industry.

During the first decade of this century our Claims Handling firm with marine surveyors for boating was integrated in the ESMA group of companies.

In 2009 ESMA expanded her activities with the first business relationships and deals made in the Far East, including China. ESMA also increased her Portfolio from mainly shipbuilding and ship repair industry to the oil and gas sector, on-shore as well as off-shore. A number of customers from these sectors were added.

Only a few years ago some parts of the ESMA group were certified according ISO 9001 Quality Management System, our ESMA Logistics became IATA CASS-member and was authorized by the Dutch Royal Marechaussee as Regulated Agent for Air Freight. Still operating from Amsterdam, the capital of The Netherlands, close ties are being maintained with a large number of relations in The Netherlands and abroad.
