When I started at ACES Pros in Plastics, I already had more than 20 years of experience with polymers and application development.
Using my experience to assist our customers in choice of polymer, processing parameters and problem solving is what I like most about my job.
Besides product development, we are also searching for new ways to make our companies even more sustainable. I was part of a team that pioneered the recycling of polymers in Europe back in 1996. Nowadays, we are not just recycling at our sister company Cumapol; we are ‘upcycling’. That means the recycled raw material is custom-made with a higher performance than that of the original raw material, making it more versatile and, therefore, more environmentally friendly.
In addition to our goals for a more sustainable company, it is also important to help people improve their lives beyond our own immediate environment. That is why I am the chairman of a foundation that financially supports projects of general interest in the village of Dian, Kei-Kecil, Indonesia.
