U-Boat Worx – the world leader in the design, engineering and manufacture of manned submersibles – is pleased to announce the opening of their new facility in Breda, The Netherlands.

The new submersible factory in Breda expects to deliver its first submarine from the new location by the beginning of August 2020.

Erik Hasselman, Commercial Director of U-Boat Worx, says, “We are delighted to announce the next step in our offering to the submersible sector from our high-tech new facility, which is five times the size of all our previous locations combined.”

“Our increased global order-book and ongoing commitment to provide the most efficient and safe submersibles has driven the expansion of our operations. U-Boat Worx is dedicated to maintaining the same consistently high-quality products for which we are renowned.”

U-Boat Worx has consolidated a number of locations into one larger facility, which has 42,000 sq ft (4,000 m2) of production area and 12,000 sq ft (1,100 m2) of office space; where we can comfortably accommodate all of our 80 staff, as well as have sufficient space for further expansion.

Bert Houtman, CEO and Founder of U-Boat Worx, says, “This magnificent new facility in Breda builds upon our substantial technical capabilities. As we advance the design and manufacture of our industry-leading submersibles, we have recognised that expanding and investing in our production capabilities is essential.”

“Our new site is tailor-made to our own design ensuring our innovative processes and state-of-the-art features will continue well into the future.”
