Green Pin® traces its origins all the way back to 1922. This was the year Dir van Beest began to manufacture the shackles that would later be branded Green Pin®, at the home of the Dutch dredging industry Sliedrecht – a town close to the Port of Rotterdam.
Dirk van Beest – a diligent and hardworking man – was passionate about creating 100% failsafe products in combination with his full-service attitude. With his focus, the company was able to grow quickly and in tandem with the international growth of the Dutch dredging and maritime industry.
Today, Green Pin® is still part of the family-owned Van Beest Group, which remains headquartered in Sliedrecht in The Netherlands and has branches in the United States (Houston and Chicago), France, Germany and Norway. Through its parent company, Green Pin® is a member of various industry organizations such as LEEA and AWRF.
