Organizing transportation in a more sustainable way without building new roads
What do a clap skate, a thumb orthosis, Boeing's aircraft engines, metal globes, components for machines at ASML and a proof-of-concepts for the grid of the latest Porsche models have in common? They all contain molded metal parts with (minimal) cutouts or openings. And that is exactly where the strength of the Bergeijk-based company 3Dtec-specializing in laser techniques for metalworking-lies. The assignments the company receives are challenging. For founder owner Frank Bax, that's what makes the work beautiful. 'For me, it's one big playground here.'
"In terms of technical talent, on the one hand, we are in a good position here in Brainport because a lot of technical talent lives here. On the other hand, we are competing with many other companies and technical talent is very scarce. Still, we manage to attract the right people. Besides offering a tremendously nice workplace, we are also willing to look at people differently. For example, someone may not immediately have the most suitable papers but with the right motivation you can get very far. We are happy to invest in people."
"Also, the large concentration of manufacturing companies in Brainport is super. We know each other well and know from each other what we can do. When I can't make something, I refer my customers and vice versa. Together we can make anything!"
