Rob Bunders, Managing Director of the Norsafe BV, stated on his new appointment:
"This new Norsafe service company in Rotterdam is able to offer clients excellent service, and has especially good facilities for the overhaul or upgrade of lifeboats systems."


Norsafe BV is established in close co-operation with the long standing Dutch company Oceanwide Safety at Sea, specialists in the production of hyperbaric lifeboat systems.
