Heritage, history and focus

Mampaey Offshore Industries goes way back. Since we started in 1904, we have a long history and a great story to tell. Mampaey is still privately owned and managed by the fourth generation.

Since 1904, founding place Dordrecht

Dordrecht is on an island in the Southwest of the Netherlands. At this location rivers meet, leading to Rotterdam, Belgium and Germany. These rivers are amongst the busiest rivers of Europe with respect to cargo transport. This was the founding place of Mampaey Machine Factory in 1904.

The first hooks

The first workshop of Mampaey was located at one of the harbors of Dordrecht. This was ideal for repairwork to ships. For the towing industry Mampaey developed towing hooks with a ‘quick release’ mechanism. This safety mechanism can easily disconnect the towline under full load with minimal effort.

Years of expansion and growth

Over the years we improved the hooks, constantly learning from experience. The company invented the Disc Towing Hook, improving the safety of towing. Between the year 1958 and 1961 Mampay took over several buildings at the harbor of Dordrecht to expand the workplace and increase production.

The next hook

In the 1950’s Mampaey designed and manufactured the very first mooring hooks after accidents and calamities occured in a number of oil terminals around the world. Due to these calamities, Mampaey was asked to develop a Quick Release Mooring Hook for the safe mooring of oil tankers. This later resulted in the development of a complete mooring hook system line. Till today, over 10.000 mooring hooks have been supplied and most of them are still in use to full satisfaction.

Expanding worldwide

The third generation of Mampaey Offshore Industries focused on the export of the Quick Release Towing and Mooring Hooks. The owner visited and exhibited on trade fairs all around the world. Due to this approach the network of Mampaey Offshore Industries grew and so did the team of partnered agents. Nowadays we have three global offices and partnerships with agencies globally.

1986, a new beginning

In 1986 the fourth Mampaey generation took over the company and changed the name Mampaey Offshore Industries. 


Innovation is key to Mampaey Offshore Industries. This lead to the extension and development of the safe mooring systems, through the development and improvement of the Steel Mooring Buoy and the Remote Control Systems.

Today and tomorrow

Nowadays Mampaey is still an expanding company. Our mission is to remain being the number one supplier for berthing, mooring and towing safety systems.
