In today's ever-changing market, it is crucial for companies to constantly adapt and innovate to stay ahead of the competition. At Struik Interiors, we understand this reality, which is why we are dedicated to maintaining the highest standards of quality and continuing to push the boundaries of yacht interior.

With over 50 years of experience and more than 200 yacht interiors completed under the Struik & Hamerslag brand, we have recently rebranded to Struik Interiors. This change reflects our ongoing commitment to staying ahead of the curve and ensuring that our clients receive the very best service and products.

One of the keyways we do this is by investing in the latest technologies and being proactive in responding to new developments in the market. For example, we are currently focused on using sustainable materials and developing environmentally friendly practices to reduce our carbon footprint. We should strive to minimize our environmental impact while creating the future's new masterpieces, ensuring that the environment is not compromised. It is our collective responsibility to be extremely selective when working with the natural resources we are given. Every day, we are committed to utilizing precious materials in the most efficient way possible, fully appreciating their value.

Over the past year, we have dedicated our efforts to establishing a comprehensive planning system, which allows us to manage our day-to-day operations with utmost precision and effectively handle all our projects. Our primary objective is to be a dependable partner for our clients, ensuring their satisfaction and loyalty. The fact that our clients choose to return to us for new projects is the strongest testament to our success, and we take great pride in their continued satisfaction.

 We recognize the importance of building strong relationships with our clients and co-makers, where we are working collaboratively to achieve the ultimate goals. By maintaining open lines of communication and taking a mutual approach to project management, we can ensure that every detail is taken care of and that our clients are completely satisfied with the end result. We prioritise trust and collaboration as co-makers to ensure that all responsibilities in the project are taken care of proactively, leading to a positive outcome for all involved. This approach motivates our team to continually seek improvements beyond their comfort zone.

Looking to the future, we are excited about the new opportunities and challenges that lie ahead. We will continue to stay at the forefront of the industry by keeping a close eye on emerging trends and technologies, as well as continuing to invest in our people and processes.

Meet our dedicated specialist: Chris de Klerk

By Lars Brouwer, Marketing & Social Media

Chris joined our company as a trainee in our work-preparation department just over a year ago, after completing several internships in the industry. His passion for top-quality yacht interiors led him to seek out a position with us, which he secured based on a recommendation from his inner circle and a successful application.

Throughout his time with us, Chris has gained a comprehensive understanding of our workflow and has used his knowledge from school to improve our streamline. He is dedicated to creating the most unique and never-before-seen interiors, with a particular appreciation for the details of cabinetry.

Chris' interest in cabinetmaking dates back to his youth, where he began crafting birdhouses and eventually expanded to building full cabinets and closets for his friends and family. As a member of our work-preparation team, Chris plays a crucial role in ensuring the overall quality of our products, as he is responsible for approving all drawings of interior pieces, converting them to CNC files, and incorporating various wood types into the designs.

When asked about the benefits of working with our company, Chris emphasized the diversity of our team and the opportunity to learn from different perspectives across all departments. He believes that this diversity ultimately contributes to the smooth running of our organization and provides ample opportunity for personal skill development.

Struik & Hamerslag rebrands as Struik Interiors!

Logo Nieuwsbrief

By Joost van Hattum, Cost Estimation and Sales

Say goodbye to the old and hello to the extraordinary
Struik & Hamerslag has long been synonymous with the highest quality luxury interiors, setting the standard in the industry. As the market continues to evolve, Struik & Hamerslag has embraced a modern approach, combining traditional craftsmanship with cutting-edge technologies. Now, we are ready to unveil our new branding and direction for a promising future.

In order to stay ahead in the ever-changing market, we are excited to present the premiere of our new identity. This identity signifies the commitment to sailing forward and remaining at the forefront of the industry.

To align with their evolving vision, we will be rebranding our company as Struik Interiors. While we have been known as Struik Interiors in the market for some time now, we believe it's time to infuse our business with a modern twist.

Struik & Hamerslag evolves into the Struik Interiors!
Eric de Meij, the CPO of Struik Interiors, explains the reasoning behind the name change: "Since 1974, the brand Struik & Hamerslag has become a prominent name in the yachting industry. As our industry continues to internationalize, we have faced challenges in spelling our name and email over the phone in various languages. 'Hamerslag' has often proven to be the most difficult part. To modernize our communication and ensure ease in all our interactions, we have decided to change our name to Struik Interiors. This name honours our heritage while maintaining a connection to the family who founded our company in 1964."

Craftsmanship is the hallmark of Struik Interiors, where we position us as the premier yacht interior builders. With a highly skilled team of 150 craftsmen who possess in-depth market knowledge and an unparalleled list of references, we strive to set the highest standards in the yachting world. Our fingerprint for craftsmanship sets us apart and solidifies our place at the top of the industry.

Discover Craftsmanship at its Finest: Join Struik Interiors Where Talent Thrives and Projects Shine!

By Dorine Huisman, Human Resource Management

At Struik Interiors, engaging and retaining staff is an everyday priority. After all, operating in the absolute top segment of the market requires personnel who can uphold a high level of craftsmanship.

We rely on a dedicated and hardworking team of skilled professionals who are loyal to the company. They enjoy working here because they operate in the "Champions League" of their field, where their craftsmanship is pushed to the limits.

Of course, we are always actively looking for more talent to further strengthen our core group of employees and our flexible workforce. In our industry, the "war for talent" is certainly not easy. The bar is set high, and the pool of qualified individuals is limited.

By actively engaging with various schools, organizing excursions and tours, and having our own inhouse engineering & furniture academy, we are fortunate that young talent knows how to find their way to Struik Interiors. We also invest significant effort in the onboarding process for new colleagues through a personalized introduction program. Throughout the year we organise various events for our colleagues to deeper connect with each other  outside of work, which significantly strengthens our team spirit.

In terms of employee retention, it is important for us to focus on the development of our colleagues. Internally, we have implemented a flex pool, where colleagues can easily explore different disciplines, such as work preparation, joinery, and installation. Additionally, we have established an internal training program called "Collaborative Craftsmanship”, where colleagues from different disciplines cooperate in a joint training programme focused on collaboration. Throughout this program, the group participates in a boxing clinic, undergoes a talent development assessment, follows an external content program, and is internally paired with a buddy. All of this is done to maximize and leverage collaboration within our organization, allowing us all to contribute to the magnificent projects we create.

So, if you're ready for a new direction, step aboard Struik Interiors!
