At home in Utrecht
SHV has always been based in Utrecht. The company was first located on the Catharijnesingel in the home of one of its founders, Hendrik Adriaan van Beuningen. In 1913, the SHV head office moved to its current location, 1 Rijnkade in Utrecht. In 1958, the need for new office space was expressed and the decision was made to start the construction of a new head office on the same site in Utrecht. This building was completed in 1960 and officially opened on 19 September of that year by His Royal Highness Prince Bernhard.
