Located in the Netherlands, in one of the world’s busiest ports, that of Rotterdam, Wortelboer can provide you with high-quality solutions for your vessel tailored to your needs. Whether you need a new anchor or chain cable to finish a newly built vessel, or replace an old/lost one, Wortelboer is the best company to go for.

Choose between 8 types of anchors available in a wide variety of sizes, and 2 types of chain cables: shortlink and studlink. In addition to these two products, the company also offers connecting parts, deck equipment, and anchor fitting.

In their effort to offer the best possible customer service, Wortelboer has additional services upon request such as the pre-fitting and marking service. Through these 2 services, chain cables and anchors get coated and marked and arranged into larger bunches, a process which saves the customer’s crew a lot of time. The company works with specialized companies in order to send their products anywhere in the world either by road or sea, and in urgent cases by air.

Wortelboer is committed to quality and excellence. The fact that their materials have been classified by IACS members such as the AMERICAN BUREAU OF SHIPPING, DNV GL, LLOYDS REGISTER OF SHIPPING, BUREAU VERITAS, RMRS and the RINA is a testament to this.
