Client: IHC Vremac in Apeldoorn
Employees: Wilco Dost and Jeroen Wennemers
Wilco and Jeroen started working at IHC Vremac in Apeldoorn in quick succession, both via Xelvin. In Apeldoorn, hydraulic cylinders are made for onshore and offshore, among other things. 'The principle of the cylinder is not complex, but the conditions under which these cylinders have to function make it a complex product that IHC Vremac can be proud of,' says Wilco enthusiastically.
Client: Royal Huisman in Vollenhove
Employees: Melvin Bakker and Rui Pedro
Melvin and Rui have been working at Royal Huisman via Xelvin since last year. 'And we are very happy here,' says Melvin. They both work as teak deckers at one of the world's leading yacht builders. Making a teak deck is a profession in its own right.
Bram is one of the very first Xelvin employees. In 2006, he was the second employee for whom Xelvin acted as intermediary. Much has changed since that time. Bram looks back on those early years with great pleasure. 'Xelvin has grown tremendously, but the contact and service have always remained the same. I still have regular contact with Vincent van Wieren and Ruud Pesch, the founders of Xelvin. But I also have a good relationship with John Hutten, my current contact person. He regularly comes by for a cup of coffee.'
Senthan has been working as a Mechatronics Design Engineer at multinational supplier of lithographic machines for almost two years. He was born in Sri Lanka and grew up in troublesome times. Senthan looks back on this time with relief: ‘Despite the difficult circumstances with the war, I succeeded in finishing my studies. There, I was able to lay the foundations for where I am today.'
