About us

Welcome at EMCÉ

We are happy to welcome you at EMCÉ, and have the opportunity to introduce our products, our company, its staff and its possibilities. We produce high quality winches, capstans and hoisting equipment, and provide services ranging from professional advice and design; through procurement, engineering and manufacture; to testing, delivery, installation, commissioning and training. Our mission is to exceed the quality, performance, durability and safety expectations of our customers, be it in shipbuilding, marine, offshore, renewables, dredging, fishing, construction, mining, theatre or general industry applications.

To provide you with a quick overview of who we are and what we do, we have identified ten key benefits of working with EMCÉ and EMCÉ products:

  1. Quality
    We never compromise on quality, which underpins every element of our procurement and manufacturing process, workforce ethic, safety culture and customer service.

  2. Standards
    High standards govern the design and fabrication of every EMCÉ product, each which is certified and documented according to industry regulations, including Lloyds, DNVGL and ABS.

  3. Expertise
    Over 45 years experience in the dedicated design and fabrication of winches and capstans translates into genuine knowledge and understanding of the market.

  4. Innovation
    We have pioneered winch design and construction based on simplicity, efficiency and reliability, creating low maintenance products that operate trouble-free for longer.

  5. Flexibility
    We create winches and capstans ranging from 100 kg to 100 tons driven by electric, hydraulic or pneumatic motors in combination with a multitude of gear configurations to suit a very wide range of applications.

  6. Bespoke Solutions
    Our products are designed to meet your specific operating and performance conditions. Over three-quarters of our production consists of tailor-made solutions.

  7. In-house Capabilities
    At EMCÉ, it’s all under one roof - from the drawing office and administration, to the engineering and testing bays. This gives us complete control of the quality and availability of resources, as well as the production process as a whole.

  8. Rapid Response
    EMCÉ responds quickly to new orders with rapid turnarounds even on complex projects. Naturally, our off-the-shelf catalogue offers even more immediate solutions on a daily basis.

  9. Location
    Headquartered close to Schiphol Airport and the port of Amsterdam, EMCÉ products are swiftly dispatched to all four corners of the world. Our international network of suppliers and service experts provides global support.

  10. Price
    Unit price is obviously important, but so too is reliability and the cost of maintenance. When it comes to product efficiency and the ‘total cost of ownership’, EMCÉ products leave others standing.
