The story of Van Ameyde Marine began in the Netherlands and goes back to 1954. That’s when the company’s founder, Henri van Ameyde, expanded the service offering to meet the marine industry’s need for specialist surveying services. The ever growing demand and increasing diversification to ever more technical disciplines ultimately led to the incorporation of a separate company in 1969, then called Marine Survey Bureau H.A. van Ameyde.
The company opened offices in the Netherlands’ major ports: Rotterdam, Amsterdam and Vlissingen and expanded its presence to Belgium in 1965. Consolidating and expanding in Belgium led to the acquisition of Sparks Surveyors in 2018. Van Ameyde Marine boasts 7 offices in the Benelux region alone. Recognising its clients’ growing need for global representation, Van Ameyde Marine initiated the acquisitions of Krogius in 2015 and McAuslands and Seasia in 2019.
