History

In January 1996 The Floating Hose Doctors started operating out of Antwerp, Belgium under the name of "The Antwerp Floating Hose Doctors".

After a while and in order to be close to their customers, the "Doctors" moved their headquarters to Singapore, as South East Asia has traditionally been one of the major scenes of dredging activity. At that time the company name was changed into "The Floating Hose Doctors", which underlines the goal of the company not to be restricted to one specific geographical working area.

During the Singapore period The Floating Hose Doctors carried out work on nearly all-large dredging sites in the Far East Asian region.

After some years and driven by the necessity to expand, The Floating Hose Doctors moved their headquarters back to Europe where Rotterdam, the largest harbour in the world, became their home base.

The Floating Hose Doctors would like to thank all customers, suppliers and other people who have contributed to the growth and success of their company.
