Edward Voncken chairman of Brainport Industries

During the 5th anniversary of Brainport Industries on October 12th Marc Hendrikse (NTS-Group) handed over the position of chairman to Edward Voncken (CEO KMWE).
Brainport Industries was formally established in 2011 to meet the needs of various high-tech manufacturing companies to cooperate in the field of education and innovation. In the past 5 years the Brainport Industries co-operation has helped develop enormous growth for up to 95 companies.

Edward Voncken has ambitious plans to expand the potential of the Dutch manufacturing industry. An example is the creation of the Brainport Industries Campus, a unique location where various companies, educational institutions collaborate in innovative ways. "The Brainport Industries Campus is unique in the world and fits entirely within the Smart Industries Agenda so the Dutch manufacturing industry can continue to grow in the coming decades," says Edward Voncken. He also wants to achieve more successful projects and initiatives in the field of promotion, technology and training of technicians and craftsmen during his chairmanship.

Marc Hendrikse saw the rapid growth of the cooperative. During his 5-year chairmanship companies outside of the area of Eindhoven have also got involved. Marc Hendrikse: "We started 10 years ago identifying the high-tech supply chain. Because everyone knew it was there, but couldn't specify it. Now the supply chain is not only a vision, but is also more mature and self-confident."

During the coming years, Brainport Industries has a lot on agenda. "It's good to experience that the transfer of the chairmanship went so smoothly. It took no effort to find a successor. This shows how all members are involved" said John Blankendaal, managing director of Brainport Industries.
