Nederland is een trotse zeevarende natie, met een hoogwaardige marine om onze handels- en nationale belangen te beschermen. Daarbij is door de eeuwen heen een uniek ecosysteem ontwikkeld, waarbinnen marine, kennisinstituten en bedrijven gezamenlijk schepen ontwikkelen en bouwen. De Koninklijke Marine fungeert als ‘launching customer’ om deze nieuwe innovatieve scheepstypes en -systemen in de praktijk te toetsen. Door deze wisselwerking van operationele maritieme ervaring en hoogtechnologische marinebouw kan Nederland altijd beschikken over de meest moderne schepen tegen een aantrekkelijke prijs. Bovendien zijn deze scheepstypes gewild voor de export of ter overname als gemoderniseerd tweedehands schip.

Naval applications are subject to some of the most challenging requirements found at sea as well as on land. As the archetypal mobile but heavy force, the navy is often called upon to channel disaster relief or secure distant areas. This may require it to sail anywhere in the world at short notice, including regions with extreme climates far from supply lines. When this happens, it is important to know that you can rely on your heating, ventilation and airconditioning units no matter what. Heinen & Hopman Engineering has longestablished and wideranging practical experience in the maritime field. We also provide global coverage and 24-7 service availability thanks to major service points and spare part depots around the world.

The iconic VW minivan sums up the Pon mindset. Flashback to 1947. Europe is rebuilding. Ben Pon, the importer for Volkswagen in the Netherlands, visits the Volkswagen plant in Germany, which at that time operates under British authority. history-schetsBen Pon is keen to talk to them, trusting in the qualities of Volkswagen. He wants to be the Volkswagen importer for the Netherlands. His call has unexpected, dramatic consequences. Ben pulls up his notepad and draws the outlines of a transportation vehicle which he senses to fill a gap in the market. The vehicle, based on the Volkswagen beetle, weighs exactly as much as its maximum payload: 750 kilograms. Ben’s idea resonates and the vehicle is taken into mass production. The Volkswagen Transporter soon becomes a best-seller, with many more variations to follow. Pioneering is in Pon’s DNA. More than 100 years later, the Pon family concern has a rich history to look back on. An overview of landmark events in Pon’s history. www.pon.com
