Techmace has been creating and maintaining technical documentation for the maritime industry since 1997.
How it started
Techmace was founded in 1997 by ir. Johan van der Plas. In a period of time were digitalization took off, Techmace had to find it’s own path forward within this new tech industry and decided to specialize in technical communication.
Because Techmace was located in Sliedrecht, (Zuid-Holland, the Netherlands) it’s clients were mainly from the maritime industry, and more specifically the dredging industry.
During a period of more than two decades we created and maintained over 200 large technical documents such as operating manuals for trailing suction hopper dredgers and cutter suction dredgers.
We also decided to specialize in a workflow based on Adobe Framemaker because of the good experiences we gained working together with companies like Royal IHC on many technical documentation projects.
