Stephan Smets

Stephan Smets
Sales & Technical Director, Shareholder | Smets Technology GmbH

 

Perhaps it’s because early in his career one of its former employers was first in business to offer professional contracting, perhaps because Stephan’s expertise in high pressure application goes back to 1974: Stephan’s technology is hard to top. Smets Technology GmbH was established in 2009 and recently partnered with Aebi Schmidt Group. Stephan will present insights on how to remove rubber environmentally friendly and gently on large surfaces only with water and without the addition of chemicals or abrasive additives.

Peter van de Linde

Peter van de Linde
Fleetmanager Operations | Schiphol Group

 

Peter definitely belongs to the most demanding customers within our group. Since more than eleven years he has been driving us to constantly develop our products and services further and make them better and better. The reason we call him most demanding – and we mean this as a compliment – is simple: before his career at Schiphol Group, he was over a decade with the Aebi Schmidt Group. So he knows both of the worlds from the inside, and yes, including the learnings from solutions which didn’t work well first.
