van West – Holland B.V.

Our history

Long before he set up his own company the founder of Van West Holland, W van West, had been a skilled professional. As Chief Mechanical Engineer and Inspector of Technical Services with the Koninklijke Hollandsche (ROYAL DUTCH) Lloyds shipping company in Amsterdam he gained a wide experience in everything to do with shipping. Lloyds used to equip its vessels with refrigeration equipment supplied by the English firm J&E Hall Ltd. When the ships docked in the port of Amsterdam, often after a very long voyage, various parts would either need repair or replacement.
