Nicoverken Holland B.V.
3125 BS Schiedam
In 1946 Mr. Carl–Olof Nilsson founded NICOVERKEN in Göteborg, Sweden. He was the person who came up with the idea of the voyage repairs by sending teams of engineers, welders and platers on board of ocean-going vessels in order to carry out all kinds of pre-docking jobs to shorten the docking time. The shortage of tonnage at that time resulted in a successful start and the basis was laid for the later well-known Nico International organisation with 16 stations around the world with 2.200 employees. Due to the crisis in the shipbuilding industry during the early eighties, only Nicoverken Holland and Dubai were able to survive as individual companies.
The Schiedam based and family-owned company Nico Holding B.V., parent company for amongst others Nicoverken Holland, has moved to another location at the end of 2004. The new premises are situated at the Algerastraat 20 in Schiedam and gathers all engineering works, service, bonded warehouse, storage and administrative divisions of the group under one roof currently employing 50 people.
