A day on the road with: Nick de Visser (Installation Engineer Supervisor)

The day kicks off with a department meeting. All installation engineers get together for this meeting to discuss the activities and planning for the upcoming week. Agreements are made and tasks are divided. Since it is important for a supervisor to be fully aware of the latest developments with regard to projects, it is then time for a Project Meeting. During this meeting, the project managers discuss the current status of their ongoing projects. After all, any changes made to the project plan or the planning can impact the installation engineers. It is therefore essential to implement such changes as quickly as possible to ensure that engineers always have access to up-to-date and correct information.

How the development of Lab Services has made me proud!

I look back fondly on my time at Lab Services and I am proud of the way Ferry de Vugt and Arjan Hofman have been running the company since the takeover in 2017.

However, I did not want to end up having to make decisions that could potentially jeopardise the continuity of the business. We were growing rapidly in every conceivable way. We had invested in many new markets and Europe and the USA in particular were at our feet. The time had come to take the next step.
