Craftsmanship boosts success
On 24 November 2016 the Engineer Noordhof Award was presented to the best craftsmen in the region of Southeast Brabant (NL) for the 27th time. Nedschroef and SMF Tools each nominated one of their employees for the award in the category ‘metal’.
Craftsmen know about their profession, show a wide interest, are socially capable and train colleagues, are creative and inventive and are ambassadors for their employer. Therefore craftsmanship is one of the pillars under the success of the region. To promote it as well as enthuse people for a job in the production industry, since 1986 the Stichting Bevordering Vakmanschap (SBV) has been presenting the Engineer Noordhof Award.
During the award ceremony we celebrated the achievements of our nominees Patrick Creemers (tool maker at Nedschroef) and Jord Neervens (lead operator machines and furnaces at SMF Tools). In the end Frans Bax from VDL Group took home the Engineer Noordhof Award for the category ‘metal’. Nonetheless we congratulate all winners and nominees!
