As part of its continuing growth strategy in-line with the increase in demand for its digital textile print solutions, Hollanders Printing Systems has added a new sales manager to its dynamic Eindhoven-based team. Bart van Kempen joined the company at the beginning of July and will play a key role in generating new customers as well as developing new territories for the product family.
Van Kempen’s experience includes working at Nestinox in Best where his sales roles involved dealing with specialist companies across a diverse range of manufacturing industries. His role at Hollanders gives him the opportunity to be involved with an ambitious company and use his customer skills to promote the ColorBooster family of textile printing systems.
Working alongside Hollanders CEO Jacco Aartsen Tuijn and founder and CTO of the company, Peter Hollanders, van Kempen is now an integral member of the close-knit highly experienced management team. His remit is to develop sales of the ColorBooster CB250 and CB250 Carpet Edition entry-level textile printers which received their European launch at Fespa 2014. In addition, he will be responsible for generating more success for the company’s 3.2m ColorBooster XL, the award-winning ColorBooster DS double-sided printer, and the ColorFix and ColorWash finishing systems.
“Working for this young yet experienced and ambitious company is a challenge I welcome. Its textile printing machines offer the highest levels of productivity and reliability,” comments van Kempen. “Peter Hollanders and his technical team have developed the finest quality family of products and it’s now up to us to share this ‘best-kept secret’ with the rest of the world.”
“In the first six months of 2014 Hollanders has seen a significant increase in interest across its entire product portfolio. Van Kempen will play an important role in helping us to extend our reach to new customers and those wanting to upgrade to a new system,” states Aartsen Tuijn. “We are now on a very positive upward trajectory and, with this strong addition to our team, we can continue to move forward in the market.”
