Jan Willem van Stee, the company’s founder and Managing Director, is a well-known name in the maritime world. His fascination for vessels started at a young age, when he and his brother caught the nautical bug from their father.
During school holidays and at weekends, the two brothers could often be found aboard Van Stee senior’s tugboat. They finally formed a three-member management board of a family business active in inland shipping and coastal navigation, operating several tugboats. Later on, the business expanded into the oil, gas and renewable energy sectors. Over the years, more and more specialisms were added.
Jan Willem, in cooperation with Jean Barbier, is currently at the helm of the organisation. Their joint knowledge and experience, large network and common-sensical, solution-oriented approach ensure that each job is brought to a favourable conclusion – with the help of a compact and experienced team consisting of competent staff.
