Marcel van der Spek - Commercial Director Esthec: "Basically, Esthec’s roots go back to 1964. Two people began developing composites that year because they saw a bright future in the replacement of timber, steel and tar.

15 years after the ambitious start of this Dutch company, their composite material was being applied on large and renowned cruise ships. Another 15 years later half the world’s cruise market wanted nothing but this composite material and another 15 years later more than 75% of the market is dedicated to it. Hundreds of cruise ships daily navigate the both calm and rough seas with the proven certainty of these indestructible, durable decks.

Esthec is a strong and solid material that consists of composites and fillers. Click here to read more about the core.
The success story is far from over. In 2009, Esthec was founded by that same Dutch company. Building on these tested and successful cruise decks, Esthec is a decking material that in aesthetics and material accurately ticks all the boxes for the yacht industry. Not based on traditional standards, but on a sharp focus on the future.

Renew itself
Esthec continues to renew itself and keeps looking for ways to improve our product, our production processes and our application. Our basic principle: we want to do it even better and more economically. In our drive for innovation we are naturally aware of our social responsibility. To act with respect for people and the environment is an important core value. Quality management is another focal point. Sales, application and production have been certified by companies that have been accredited by the Board of Accreditation. Esthec’s certifications include EN-ISO 9001 en EN-ISO 14001."

Choosing Esthec requires a certain amount of progressiveness.  However, our experience tells us: once crazy about Esthec, always crazy about Esthec. Who is next?
