Radio Holland Group (Rotterdam) celebrated its 100th anniversary in the maritime shipping industry. The event took place on board of the historical ship ss Rotterdam, in the port of Rotterdam where Radio Holland also has its headquarters. Paul Smulders, CEO of Radio Holland, welcomed the Mayor of Rotterdam, Ing. A. Aboutaleb and presented the Mayor with the first edition of the book ‘A century Radio Holland, 1916-2016’.

Paul Smulders, CEO of Radio Holland says: "Radio Holland is 100 years young! We have a rich history, full of unique moments and milestones. At the same time we always look ahead. For example with developments and innovations in remote monitoring, connectivity and ICT on board. Our aim is to help our customers to manage their operations as efficient, safe and effective as possible. Today was a unique day. It is also the start of our anniversary year. A year in which we will celebrate our anniversary at various moments and events around the world.  Radio Holland is a renowned company, I am convinced there is no one in the maritime industry who does not know Radio Holland. We are very proud of this feat."

"Today we celebrated the 100th anniversary onboard the historical ship ss Rotterdam. We welcomed a group of esteemed guests: top management of customers, ship owners, ship management companies and yards, key suppliers, classification societies, Royal Netherlands Navy, branch organizations, the CIRM and former directors of our company. Their overwhelming presence today shows the close bonds Radio Holland has in the market. I was proud to welcome the Mayor of Rotterdam, Ing. A. Aboutaleb, as our guest of honor. It was my pleasure to present the Mayor with the first book ‘A Century Radio Holland, 1916-2016’. It is a unique book, describing the history of our company in text and visual in a beautiful way."

"We had a slogan for Radio Holland from the eighties, which is still very valid: “A company is only as good as its people! “ I would like to thank all Radio Holland employees for their dedication, drive and support, to give Radio Holland a proud place on the global maritime map, I look forward to the next 100 years!!"
