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 south-west 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 in one of the harbors of Dordrecht. This was ideal for repair work to ships and later for the introduction of the safe towing hooks. 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 our experience. We engineered the Disk Towing hook and this improved the safety of the towing systems. Between the year 1958 and 1961 Mampay took over several buildings in the Harbor of Dordrecht to expand the workplace and increase the production.

The next hook

In the 1950’s we designed and manufactured the very first mooring hooks after accidents and calamities in a number of oil terminals around the world. Due to these calamities, Mampaey was asked to develop a Quick Release Hook for 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 started with the focus 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 his 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 begin

In 1986 the fourth Mampaey generation took over the company and from this day on the company got the name Mampaey Offshore Industries. This was also the turning point to outsource the production. To guarantee the quality of the products the production is never located outside of Europe.


Mampaey Offshore Industries has an innovative character. 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 Panel.

Today and tomorrow

Nowadays Mampaey is still a growing company. This means the product portfolio also keeps extending. Our mission is to remain the number one supplier for berthing, mooring and towing safety systems. Mampaey Offshore Industries is still privately owned and managed by the fourth generation.
