Founded in 1954

In 1954 Arie van Aalst founded the first Dutch pneumatic bulk handling company: The van Aalst Group. Driven by a desire to beat customer expectations, the family business focussed on innovative solutions. Resulting in the first pneumatic self-discharging cement carrier and a new company founded in 1998: Van Aalst Marine & Offshore.

The company is currently run by the third generation. Wijnand van Aalst, grandson of Arie, aims to create a business that will outlive future generations. Due to this the focus of the company lies on increasing efficiency, sustainability and thus reducing emissions.

Our mission is to provide

the best quality.
