Our experienced local partners

Local presence is important for Nieland to support the implementation of new equipment and innovative technology. We are proud to have a network of experienced local partners around the world to assist and support our global customers.

Kranendonk Japan

Region Japan

Like Nieland, Kranendonk is a Dutch company founded in 1983. We are the robot technology center for non-repetitive production in heavy industries. Kranendonk Japan is one of subsidiaries taking care of sales and services in Japan and Korea. It was a natural fit to become the local agent for Nieland since we both operate in the shipbuilding industry and as we have a local technical support team.

Due to the declining population of Japan, the labor shortage of entire society has become a problem. As a result, many skilled workers in the shipbuilding industry have retired, affecting the line heating process that requires labor. Now it is the time to shift to the cold forming technology realized by Nieland, that is reducing process time and manhours, maintaining material properties, and giving you a shortcut to achieve full-automated 3D forming process near future.

We have already achieved a lot of success in Japan and believe that it is a market with a great potential for Nieland.
