Daan Wouterse: "I experienced the Indutrade philosophy as no-nonsense with short lines, progressive, quality-, market-, and customer-oriented. Here the financial vitality of companies is obviously not out of sight of and that matches well with our current philosophy. It was also my wish to transfer timely the management, to create space for our managers Olaf van de Ven and Henry le Noble. I will tranfer the headship on December 31, 2011. I will remain available as a consultant for 2 years."
Among the Benelux holding company, based in Uithoorn, also include:
the HITMA companies, Ammertech, Douwes Int., Gimex, HP Valves, Aluglas and Hanwel.
