After nearly a quarter-century of dedicated service with NPI, Arjen van Dijk is embarking on a new adventure. His first day at the Ridder office will be on November 1.
Arjen van Dijk first walked through the doors of NPI's office 24 years ago and has since served as NPI's Sales Director. When he joined the Friesian company, he swiftly leveraged NPI's expertise in foil processing for a very specific application: water storage, particularly in metal water tanks.
"It is to his credit that we initiated the production and sale of metal water storage tanks with foil lining. In no time, our water tanks began to be exported worldwide. Arjen can rightly be regarded as the founder of the water storage division," the company proudly reflects.
Arjen also dedicated himself to innovation. One of his achievements was establishing an online ordering and quotation portal. In 2020, when the world was temporarily halted by the Covid pandemic, Arjen played a vital role in the successful launch of an (online) marketing startup within NPI.
Now, it's time for a new adventure as Arjen prepares to join Ridder. At Ridder, Arjen will bring his extensive experience and innovative spirit to the role of Sales Manager. "We are thrilled to welcome him to our team and look forward to the fresh perspectives and expertise he will bring to enhance further our commitment to delivering top-quality solutions in the horticultural industry," says Timo Spruijt, Sales Director EMEA & ROW. "Arjen's track record of initiating successful projects and his dedication to innovation make him a valuable addition to Ridder. We believe his contributions will help us continue to grow and innovate in the ever-evolving world of horticultural technology."
