Boskalis (Bos & Kalis) was founded as Johannes Kraaijeveld en van Noordenne in 1910 by Johannes Kraaijeveld and Elizabeth van Noordenne. In the thirties it was renamed NV Baggermaatschappij Bos & Kalis when Gerrit Jan Bos, Wilhelm Bos, Egbertus Dingeman Kalis and Kobus Kalis took over. In between the two wars, Boskalis contributed to the Zuiderzee project. The company inked a contract in 1931 for the dredging of Bromborough Dock. In 1933, Boskalis partnered with the Westminster Dredging Company (based in Fareham, England), which opened business opportunities with West Africa.

Boskalis became a public company in 1970. Boskalis received the designation “Royal” in 1978. In the 1980s economic and political circumstances forced Boskalis to concentrate on its core dredging business.
During the 1990s Boskalis worked in Hong Kong on the major land reclamation project for the new Chek Lap Kok airport and in Singapore it cooperated on a multi-year development program.
