Manuel Cattoir 

A reliable partner

The strong reputation of Nemag is the compounded result of almost a decade of experience. As a family business we take pride in thinking on the long run and be the partner you can rely on. Next to that, all divisions within the organisation are really aligned and approachable. This certainly impacts our shared passion for performance. We don’t just sell and manufacture high-end grabs, we are a lifelong partner with a passion for performance. Because, even after your purchase, you can rely on Nemag’s exceptional after-sales and customer service.


In addition to delivering a qualitative product that increases your productivity and reduces downtime and service needs, Nemag also offers a 100% service guarantee. Learn more about our service and maintenance.

Commitment to innovation

Spending time and effort on research and development, we developed multiple patented technological improvements together with our customers, research institutes and universities. An investment to be at the forefront of the industry, delivering the highest quality and lowest maintenance costs per ton transferred.

This effort didn’t go unnoticed: Nemag won a top 20 position of most innovative companies (MKB) in the Netherlands by the Dutch Chamber of Commerce.

A result of this commitment to innovation is our newest grab which is developed in cooperation with the Technical University of Delft. Simulating the grab's mechanics and the particle dynamics of bulk materials helped to iterate on multiple productivity-boosting principles. The NemaX grab will increase your productivity by at least 10%. Various clients even reported a stunning 20% increase in productivity. Multiple use cases and letters of recommendation are available on request.

“It used to take up to 5 days to unload a ship. With the Nemag Clamshell and the NemaX side by side, we manage to unload the ships within four days! The savings in demurrage costs are considerable, to say the least.”

Enhancing safety, reducing damage

A safe working environment for your staff is highly important. Nemag grabs can be equipped with hand grips and rests, including special attachments for harnesses and safety belts. In addition, centralised greasing systems are available, which enable fast and safe greasing of the entire grab without dangerous climbing. In addition, the contours of the grabs are as flushed as possible to minimise the risk of entanglement with hatch coamings or damage to the grab’s surroundings.
