Everyone who knows me also knows that I’m a big football fan. Despite being born in Brabant, I don’t support PSV; Ajax is the club for me. Even as a young boy I loved the beauty and style of the Amsterdam-based team’s game, and I still try to attend at least one home match a year. Another great thing about a top-flight club like Ajax is that they are always striving to be the best. I recognise that drive; always trying to get the best out of yourself, always giving it your all. I don’t like ‘middle of the road’ or ‘average’. Instead, I want to work with specialists, people who really excel at what they do. Only then can you achieve top-quality results together.
I want to excel at developing machines which really help manufacturers by making the production process more efficient, more cost-effective and/or more hygienic. In that context, no idea is too crazy for me. In fact, I love the challenge of developing a completely new machine that solves the customer’s problems. The innovative aspect is one of the things I enjoy the most. I like to be at the forefront of the latest techniques and to try new things. If it doesn’t work out, I simply look for a different solution. It’s all about the end result, which in this case means a machine that fully meets the customer’s needs.
Our innovative strength will also be underlined at Interpack, where we will be presenting a unique interactive game. By working on the virtual production line, you can get a sense of the power and robustness of our machines for yourself. It’s also thanks to my love of innovation that you are currently reading this publication. It’s the first special edition of Dutch Food Industry, which is something I’m particularly proud of. Elsewhere in this issue you can read more about Sleegers Technique BV and how we can help you. Staying with the football theme, this publication is the ball and I’ve just passed it to you. Have I sparked your interest? If so, it’s over to you to score the goal by making an appointment. Let’s talk tactics (without obligation)!
