Deal Drecht Cities is the central marketing and promotion agency of the seven Drecht Cities, the economic development company ROM-D and the Port of Rotterdam. Being solely financed by these partners, all services of the foundation are rendered for free. This means that the threshold for any company seeking a new location east of Rotterdam, gets a royal treatment without any commercial interest whatsoever. The independent, discrete and highly professional nature of the organisation is valued by many companies that seek investment opportunities in the center of the Dutch Maritime Delta.
The Drecht Cities
The Drecht Cities are home to almost 1,000 companies in maritime construction, shipbuilding, manufacturing, and sea river shipping. This includes global leaders like Boskalis, Royal IHC, Heerema Fabrication Group, Damen Shipyards Group, Oceanco, and Fokker Technologies. Our clients trust us to deliver on our promises, because we combine practical innovation with superb execution and never compromise on quality. And because we are at our best when the stakes are high and the only way forward is to build something that was never built before.
That is why we have created the Palm Islands and helped New Orleans and Venice deal with floods. Why we have broadened the Suez Canal and built new locks in Panama. And why we have given Europe its modern inland shipping fleet and build some of the world’s finest complex specials and luxury yachts. Our work is of tremendous value to our clients. Also it is our contribution to global challenges such as climate change, population growth, and the search for sustainable energy.
