Your Dredging Project

New Developments at Idreco

August 15, 2016

Idreco BV, a subsidiary of Rohr International Dredge Holdings and Ellicott Dredge Enterprises, announces that Wim Snippe, the Managing Director of Idreco BV, has decided after a long career in designing and building dredges and pumps to retire from Idreco BV and pursue other interests unrelated to Idreco BV and its sister companies’ activities.

“We will miss Wim's creative approach to dredge design but wish him the best in his new ventures,” said Fulco Vrooland, Managing Director of Rohr-Idreco Dredge Systems’ European Operations. Added Heiko Osterchrist, Managing Director of the Rohr-Idreco Dredge Systems group, "I have worked closely with Wim for four years since we acquired Idreco, and his contributions will be missed. The Rohr-Idreco Dredge group will continue to expand its international footprint in being the leading designer and supplier of dredges, high efficiency pumps and dredge-related equipment and components."


Idreco BV also announces that Peter Jap has joined the company as Senior Sales Manager. In this capacity he will be working to expand the company's business within Europe as well as internationally.
