The history of the former island of Urk dates back over 1000 years. The town on the former South Sea (Zuiderzee) has always been inextricably linked to fishing. When the construction of the Northeast Polder was completed in 1939 to protect against flooding in this part of the Netherlands, the salt-water South Sea was transformed into the fresh-water Ijsselmeer lake. This marked the start of a difficult period for the fishing industry and economy in Urk. The town survived due to the resilience, inventiveness and entrepreneurial spirit of its inhabitants, who were determined to find new ways to keep their heads above water.
Hard work, independence and reliability are values that have always been pivotal to the people of Urk. The character of the residents is endowed with a strong sense of principles and values. Joining forces to achieve results, a nine-to-five mentality is absent in a local and corporate culture that revolves around the delivery of top-quality products. We also embrace an open and transparent operational management system with short lines of communication ensuring the fastest possible decision-making process.
Piet Brouwer Electrotechnology has been installing electrotechnical systems onboard fishing vessels since 1961. As all were crewed by family members, friends and acquaintances, no effort was spared to ensure the most reliable systems for all weather conditions and the roughest of seas. Today, guaranteeing optimal onboard safety remains an integral part of our working method, one which we apply to every project, from commercial vessels to superyachts.
After delivery of a project, whether it be a commercial vessel, a superyacht or a land-based solution, our clients are assured of the best possible electrical system. In the unlikely event of failure or breakdown, we will ensure a quick solution. Where necessary, our employees fly out to you and resolve the issue on site. In this way we achieve optimal client satisfaction and guarantee premium quality and service.
