Mammoet is a privately held Dutch company specializing in the hoisting and transporting of heavy objects.
Mammoet was founded in 1973, specialised in heavy transport over water and roads. In 2001 it was taken over by Van Seumeren transport. The name Mammoet became the name for the new company. The daughter company Mammoet Shipping was sold to Spliethoff and was renamed BigLift Shipping. It raised the Russian submarine Kursk. The company is experienced in the offshore, petrochemical, and construction industries, the latter of which includes rapid bridge replacement using Self Propelled Modular Transporter vehicles. Mammoet headquarters in Schiedam is located in a distinctive office building named De Bolder (= "The Bollard"). The building was fabricated in a factory and later shipped to the current location. This helped to save time and money. Mammoet has additional offices in North America, South America, South Africa, the Middle East, and Eastern Asia. The Director of Mammoet was Roderik van Seumeren. 75% of the shares are in hands of SHV, the remaining part is still in hands of the van Seumeren family. In 2011 all remaining stocks were sold to SHV, making SHV the sole owner of Mammoet. CEO Roderik van Seumeren left Mammoet right after and was succeeded by Jan Kleijn. Jan Kleijn used to run the American part of the Mammoet business.
Mammoet currently has approximately 3200 employees worldwide, of which approximately 850 are employed in The Netherlands. Mammoet is Dutch for "mammoth". On October 18, 2008, Mammoet sponsored the NASCAR Craftsman Truck, #12 of J.R. Fitzpatrick at Martinsville Speedway.
