We are Arntz | van Helden

Leading experts

At Arntz | van Helden, we are specialised in quality loss adjusting and surveying for the corporate insurance market in the field of shipping and engineering. In addition, we offer claims handling, recovery, inspections, risk analysis and consultancy services.

Our qualified and experienced loss adjusters and surveyors are leading experts. Let there be no doubt. Harnessing our professional and technical expertise, years of experience in dealing with complex claims, and our skills to identify and clearly report the facts of the damage, we ensure that others understand what has happened. We are ready to support you anywhere in the world, 24/7.

Based on the type of damage, the right specialists are allocated to the case. And in the unlikely event of us not having the required expertise? We then simply call in the expertise of our partners in the Van Ameyde Group. Or we rely on the know-how and experience of our extensive network. What sets us apart? One point of contact, short communication lines, clear communication, and most importantly: driven, highly skilled and qualified people. And we never say ‘no’.

Modern and ambitious

In the past few years we have grown rapidly, both organically and through mergers and acquisitions. Our ambition is to continue growing in the coming years. The rapid developments in the world around us make great demands on employees and employers. As modern employers we wish to enable our people and support them in excelling in their work. That’s why they get every opportunity to receive training and evolve. We also take societal issues, such as sustainability, very seriously. And so we have integrated our drive to reduce the impact of our actions on humankind and the environment in our policies and operations. But there’s still so much more to do.

Policy spearheads

Being a highly respected company with hard-working people, a lot of know-how and creativity, and a healthy dose of ambition, we have defined the following policy spearheads for the coming years:

  • Further global growth of our activities
  • Recruiting new loss adjusters and surveyors
  • Enhancing our sustainability efforts both inside and outside our company
  • • continuous professionalisation of our company, because keeping up with the latest technologies, digital solutions and insurance is essential in an ever-changing world
  • Continuously improving our good employer practices
