In 2021, we celebrated Van der Meijden’s 40th anniversary. Also, the company name was changed to Van der Meijden Yacht Interiors. We also moved to a new location and the two sites were merged into new premises.
In 2016, Van der Meijden was acquired again. Management now consists of two men. Once again, the company grew and expanded. At that time there were about 60 employees and several contracted employees, across 2 in-house locations and several construction sites.
In 2004, the company was taken over and Van der Meijden started focusing mainly on luxury yacht carpentry. We were doing less work for private persons and we were also no longer carrying out ship building on Blikstraat. At that point the company had grown considerably and we employed about 40 people. Besides that, more international orders came in. From England to Qatar and from Germany to America.
In 2002, Jasper van der Meijden changed the name to Van der Meijden Luxury Interiors. With this, we specialised in prefab furniture for luxury yachts.
In 1981, Van der Meijden Betimmeringen was founded by Jasper van der Meijden. The company did all kinds of carpentry work: from dormers and window frames to panelling for tugboats at Damen. We also worked for many private persons. During that time, the company started making prefab furniture for various shipyards. Refits and new construction projects were also included. Somewhat later, yachts up to 25 meters were completely finished. Gradually Van der Meijden expanded to a higher segment along with the shipyards.
Carpentry has been in the Van der Meijden family’s blood for several generations. This goes back as far as the year 1900, where Mr Jan-Willem van der Meijden started as a master carpenter.
