Mammoet is a privately held Dutch company specializing in the hoisting and transporting of heavy objects. The company was founded in 1973, specialised in heavy transport over water and roads. In 2001 it was taken over by Van Seumeren transport. The name Mammoet became the name for the new company. The daughter company Mammoet Shipping was sold to Spliethoff and was renamed in BigLift Shipping. It raised the Russian submarine Kursk. The company is experienced in the offshore, petrochemical, and construction industries, the latter of which includes rapid bridge replacement using Self Propelled Modular Transporter vehicles.
Mammoet headquarters in Schiedam is located in a distinctive office building named De Bolder (= "The Bollard"). The building was fabricated (built) in a factory and later shipped to the current location. This helped to save time and money. Mammoet has regional offices in North America, South America, South Africa, the Middle East, and Eastern Asia. The Director of Mammoet is Roderik van Seumeren. 75% of the shares are in hands of SHV, the remaining part is still in hands of the van Seumeren family.
