This website is dedicated to the complex history of the Nederlandsche Dok en Scheepsbouw Maatschappij (NDSM) and its legal predecessors, the N.V. Nederlandsche Scheepsbouw Maatschappij (NSM) and the N.V. Nederlandsche Dok Maatschappij (NDM). These dockyards were mainly involved in building merchant ships, but just before and during World War II, the NSM also built a number of warships. Two of them were the flotilla leaders Tromp and Jacob van Heemskerck. The website goes into detail about the companies' histories, the ships they built and the men who built them.
