Mission & Vision

After more than 168 years of experience, consistency is still our main motive. As a family business, we focus on creating long-term value and sustainable relationships with our customers, employees and partners. We will always rely on our core values: safety, quality and reliability.

And safety is number one.

168 years and still going strong

In 1855, Dura opened the first carpentry store on Rotterdam's Katendrecht. Vermeer started its road company in Cruquius in 1961, and in 1998 we merged into the one company Dura Vermeer. A large number of great and special construction and infrastructure projects later, there is a company with nearly 3,000 employees and a turnover of 1.8 billion euros. We are among the top most innovative and sustainable construction companies in the Netherlands.
