Zwijndrecht

Working together makes reaching your goal easier

The maritime manufacturing industry and inland shipping industry are strongly represented in Zwijndrecht. The town is home to a relatively large number of family businesses, and some have been around for over a century. “That typifies the character of Zwijndrecht”, says councillor Robert Kreukniet. “That is also how we treat new companies: as if they were new in-laws.”

About Zwijndrecht

The maritime manufacturing industry is a point of attention in Zwijndrecht. Kreukniet comments: “It’s a broad concept. Electrical engineering for the maritime industry and for petrochemical sector, for example, don’t differ that much. However, if you focus on such an industry and facilitate it, the economic spin-off is impressive.. If you don’t focus, you might as well not bother at all. Zwijndrecht has much more to offer, of course, especially in collaboration with the other Drecht Cities. That’s something we maintain and improve, but our focus is on the maritime manufacturing industry.”
