Schiedam offers a large array of possibilities for living and working. The city has an atmosphere of urban dynamism whilst still managing to retain that village feel. It has an active entrepreneur’s climate and there is a wide variety of accommodation on offer: from monumental canal-side buildings to newly built estates. Whatever you choose, you will live in a distinctive environment with much to offer.
The city’s shipping and jenever history is partly due to the success of various international companies situated there, such as Mammoet, IHC Gusto Engineering, Nolet Distillery and Koninklijke De Kuyper. The city also provides opportunities for smaller companies and starting and creative entrepreneurs. It is one of the most accessible cities of the Netherlands as it lies strategically on the A20 and the A4 and is also easily accessed by train, tram, bus and metro.
