Our Company History
Atradius Dutch State Business NV is part of the Atradius Group, whose head office is located in Amsterdam. The NCM, Atradius’s predecessor, started insuring credit as long ago as 1925. Atradius Dutch State Business is the official credit insurance agency of the Netherlands. We have fulfilled this role since 1932. On behalf of and for account of the Dutch state, we cover financial risks related to export transactions and investments in enterprises abroad.
Helping Dutch enterprises do business abroad is the reason why we exist. Our mission is to add value to the Dutch economy by enabling Dutch enterprises to offer their export products and services on the most competitive terms and conditions.
We do this by providing insurance and guarantees which protect the balance sheets of Dutch enterprises and enable them to obtain financing for their export transactions and foreign direct investments.
