Vroon provides seagoing transportation services and engineering
& support solutions that are reliable, sustainable, cost
effective and enable its customers to be successful.
With headquarters located in Breda (the Netherlands), the
company employs about 4,000 professionals in offices around the
world and on board a diverse fleet of approximately 200 vessels.
Vroon is active - through various subsidiaries and under different
brand names - in the following business segments: livestock
carriers; offshore-support vessels; offshore installation,
maintenance and engineering services; dry-cargo vessels; container
vessels; product/chemical tankers; asphalt/bitumen tankers; car
carriers and vessel-management services.
The company is privately held by the Vroon family and currently
managed by its fourth generation. Founded in 1890, the company
originally exported agricultural products to England, France and
Belgium while importing coal into the Netherlands. However, after
World War II the company recognised the opportunities in
transportation and changed its focus from trading commodities to
owning and managing vessels.
Vroon attaches great importance to its Vision and Mission, Core
Values and Culture which provide guidance to all staff at sea and
ashore. In 2015 the company joined the Maritime Anti-Corruption
Network (MACN). MACN is a global business network working
towards the vision of a maritime industry free of corruption that
enables fair trade to the benefit of society at large.
