The Bredenbek-based site is the company’s third location outside the Netherlands

Dutch systems integrator Van Berge Henegouwen has opened an office in northern Germany in a bid to ramp up its presence worldwide. It is VBH’s third location outside the Netherlands.

VBH’s German office is in Bredenbek, outside Kiel, 90km north of Hamburg. The region is major centre for yacht and shipbuilders.

The office will have a primary focus on the operational building process of superyachts, says CEO Jeroen van den Hurk.

He adds it will “allow us to improve upon our existing presence while continuing to provide exceptional service to superyacht projects in the region,” he adds.

Amsterdam-based VBH also has offices in Ft Lauderdale (USA) and Antibes (France). Working with a network of suppliers, VBH installs technologies that run AV, IT, lighting, control, communication and security systems on superyachts. Over the last 30 years, it has worked on 200-plus superyachts.

VBH employs 150 specialists and offers 24/7 support.
