Meet the team

Thomas van der Werf

Allround Composites Worker

Thomas stuck around after his internship and has already made a lot of progress in our warehouse. In addition to his studies in Naval Engineering in Leeuwarden, he works in our warehouse for 3 days. If he cannot be found in our shed, he is busy with his own boat. He bought an old dilapidated lifeboat which he gave a complete refit. In good weather you can meet him with a group of friends on the Frisian lakes.


Jellie Boschma-Schriemer

Allround employee

Jellie came as a replacement for our cleaning lady during her maternity leave. When there were some hands short during that period, it was soon clear that Jellie also stood her ground in the workshop. She most enjoys to stick Teflon and Prepreg. The precise fiddle work is her specialty.
In her own time, she enjoys life on the farm and takes beautiful nature photos. In the summer she likes to go out by motorbike or go on a boat trip on the Frisian waters.

Lance Tijhuis

Work planner / draftsman
When we receive an order, Lance is the first to get started. He designs a mould around the original product. He turns the mould into a frame package which is processed on the CNC router. When the work is on the router, Lance makes the workinstruction for the guys in the workshop. Lance is the man of sizes during the project and he get all the information from the 3D models. In his own time he likes to go out with his motorcycle. His dream is to make a world trip on the motorcycle.

A true professional with a lot of experience. He knows everything from mould building to laminating. Bert is very social, creates a good atmosphere in our team and he patiently guides our new employees or interns. Bert takes care that the general stuff such as gloves, rollers, sandpaper ect. are present in the warehouse.
