Jubilee Book being presented

IHC Merwede has commissioned a prestigious new jubilee book, entitled 70 years IHC Merwede. The first copy of this publication was presented to the mayor of Rotterdam, Mr Ahmed Aboutaleb, at the city’s Maritime Museum.
 
Written by maritime historian Dr Joke Korteweg, this unique and beautifully designed book contains more than 300 pages and approximately 400 photographs. Describing the history of IHC Merwede in several phases, it highlights how the traditional Dutch company has been able to survive challenging circumstances thanks to its commercial and technical innovations. The book also provides an excellent overview of the national and international impact that IHC Merwede has had in political, economic and social spheres.
 
70 years IHC Merwede is published by Uitgeverij Boekschap in The Netherlands and will soon be available in various bookshops. It can also be ordered from the IHC Merwede webshop at http://webshop.ihcmerwede.com
