I have taken over from my father and and my wish is to handover the company to the next generation. I am 67 now and want to step into a new role which allows me to fully focus on innovative technology for our current and new markets. We have been working with Theo for almost a year now and are convinced that he will further build on a solid and more structured foundation for our company. Besides his proven experience in a sector relevant to our business, we share the same conviction that innovation is key for the success of Huisman.
