About Us

Based in the Netherlands, near Amsterdam and headquartered in Nederhorst den Berg, the
Crane Company Zwagerman was founded
about 50 years ago.
Since 1995, Peter Barnhoorn and Anneke Barnhoorn
Zwagerman as a married couple took over
the management of the company, until a few years ago, when they handed over the business to
three grandchildren of founder Jacob Zwagerman,
From t
he beginning, the family has been involved in the leadership of the various departments of
the old company.
The demerger of a new division called "Zwagerman V.M.T. BV" for the rental market of crawler
cranes was a huge success. This division achieved a sig
nificant market share shortly after the
demerger, especially in the rental market of crawler cranes from 30 to 350 tons.
After the demerger the activities were not limited to only the Netherlands and today the crawler
cranes are used worldwide for various
construction projects


The primary focus of activities is, as previously mentioned, on the rental of crawler cranes, on the
basis of 24
hour service and they can be deployed with the guarantee of flexible usage.
Therefore it's possible to
deliver the required crawler cranes on site and to rapidly deploy
them for operational use, so that they can be used by the customers without any form of delay.
Our activities don't just offer you the ability to the
rent our crawler cranes, but we also offer your
business certified and experienced crane operators and technical support staff.


Besides the rental of crawler cranes, the company is also active in the trade market for crawler
cranes and
purchases and sells both new and used crawler cranes.
The sister company Zwagerman Materieel BV is active in the global trade market and has a
large range of different crane brands and models available. All cra
wler cranes meet European
safety standards and
carry the CE certificate.
At present, the company has about 80 crawler cranes in use, which can be equipped to a
specialized load out, for example, draglines, hooks, pipe laying equipment and diaphragm wall
grabs, for use with diaphragm walls, excavation,
dynamic soil compaction, handling and so on.
Some crawler cranes are equipped with a raised cabin with a range of up to 9 meters.
