On Saturday July 13th we heard the sad news that our CEO, Rob Groenendijk, has passed away aged 57. Rob had been ill for some time but was unable to win this battle.
Rob was with Demaco for 11 years and made a huge contribution to the development of our company during this time. Joining in the middle of the financial crisis, his passion, professional insight, transparency, social impact and humour have all contributed to an organisation in perfect health in 2019.
Partly through his input, Demaco has become a world player in cryogenics with a continuing focus on innovation and its customers. Under his leadership the management team has been able to evolve, capable of independently directing the daily operation of Demaco.
We are unbelievably grateful and proud of what we have achieved together, and our thoughts are with his wife and children.
On behalf of the Board, MT and staff of Demaco Holland bv,
