Highly productive grabs and lowest costs of ownership; that is our promise to you.

Nemag, a family business founded in 1924, is your preferred partner for the handling of dry bulk materials and has a strong reputation around the world. Nemag provides a full range of grabs and various types of quick-release links and rope pear sockets.

Technological development

In close cooperation with leading bulk terminal operators, crane manufacturers, Technical Universities and other stakeholders in the industry, Nemag continues to develop new products for the dry bulk industry. The aim is always to reduce handling costs per tonne of dry bulk materials transferred.

The latest software technology like 3D CAD, Multi Body Dynamics (MBD), Discrete Elements Methods (DEM) and Finite Elements Methods (FEM) support our team of designers in optimising your grab. High tensile steels, wear resistant steels and advanced bearing technology enables us to design extremely productive, light weight and durable grab mechanisms.



Nemag inventions include the scissor grab, specialised rubber-lined lip sealing systems for handling powdered cargo, the patented Nemag quick-release link and the Nemag rope pear socket for high strength wire ropes, the introduction of a new generation of environmentally-friendly clamshell grabs, and last but not least, the patented and awards winning nemaX grab. Nemag is rewarded by the Dutch Chamber of Commerce with the 20th position of most innovative companies (MKB) in the Netherlands.



The technological development is partly financed by the European Regional Development Fund in the framework of the OP Zuid.



Alongside innovation, customer support and a very intensive after-sales service are of paramount importance to both Nemag and its customers. A global network of specialised representatives supported by Nemag specialists are ready to assist customers worldwide.

Leading steel plants, bulk handling companies and crane manufacturers in over 60 countries worldwide are part of our customer base for decades: companies which, just like us, stand for innovation, quality and reliability.
