The article presents a brief profile of ship-building company Damen. The Netherlands-based company has been operating for 82 years and is proud to declare that it is still family-owned. Chairman Kommer Damen admits that a family-run company has the advantage of taking a long view of the market compared to listed companies that are pressured to do just the opposite. Damen's success in Australia is being credited with its partnership with local company Asiaworld Shipping.
