The RDM (Rotterdam Drydock Co) is still in existance but no longer built or dock ships.
All floatiung docks disappeared ages ago , but they still built some superstructures on contract.
On the old existing premises you find a number of offices, some related to shipping, others not and they just lease a room or a small building.

The model I posted earlier was refurbished in a big shed, just next door to the slipway from which the Rotterdam was launched.
