Dutch Marine HVAC systems market leader, Heinen & Hopman, celebrate 50 years in business in 2015. Founded in 1965 by Melis Heinen and Cees Hopman, for its first eight years the company specialised in the design, engineering and installation of air conditioning, cooling, ventilation and central heating systems in buildings.
As the company grew, they started to receive inquiries from the commercial shipping industry, and by the early 1970s they had adapted their business to meet these additional needs and requirements.
The company now has offices and manufacturing facilities in 15 countries and has supplied over 10,000 vessels worldwide.
Heinen & Hopman comment on their golden jubilee, saying, “We would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude and appreciation to all our business partners for their trust in our company over the past 50 years. We look forward to working with you in the future and hope our business relationship continues for many years to come.”
