How we work

The way we conduct our business at Hatenboer-Neptunus reflects our corporate principles. Our fundamental beliefs include respect for the environment and persons around us as well as responsibility in the broadest sense of the word.

In order to understand the way our corporate principles truly link to our business ethos, we need to look into our past. All the way back to 1906, to be precise. This is the year our company was founded by Captain D. Hatenboer. He started off his enterprise on a small scale, supplying fresh water to seagoing vessels in the port of Rotterdam. Over the years, the Hatenboer enterprise expanded by adding other types of waters and incorporating water desalination and disinfection technologies, resulting in our other branche Hatenboer-Water

Why is this so important to us   

Consider for a moment the enormous personal and economic impact of inferior water quality. Imagine for example the effect of bacterial contamination of water used for consumption on a cruise ship or for the production of beverages in a factory. Apart from the health hazards and reputational damage, the costs of the resulting down-time are disastrous.  

Meaningful partnerships    

We believe the best way to support you in your safe water management is by being your flexible water partner. Meaning we will deliver the water in time, with the proper quality and in the amount you need. 

How do we do this?    

By thinking along with you and looking forward. Being stand by at all times. Having a fleet of dedicated water barges and water trucks for fast transportation. Rely on our long standing experience and quality we can offer with our in-house process engineering team for your perhaps special demands. 

The spirit of our founder can still be felt in each of the organisation’s divisions: a constant quest for the optimal solution, technologically and economically. 

With the same commitment that Captain D. Hatenboer Sr. showed in 1906 and throughout his lifetime. Keeping you, our customer, as our very first priority.
