Marcel grew up in the paper making center of the Netherlands. His father worked in the Paper Machine Clothing business and he introduced his young child to the paper industry. Later, Marcel studied engineering with internships at paper mills. After a few years in the lasers and electronics industry, Marcel joined his father’s company in 1995. They represented several suppliers to the paper industry, with a focus on the sales & service of Paper Machine Clothing.
Service measurements had to be done with standard equipment, which was not very usable in the rough environment of a paper machine. Out of frustration, Marcel started developing his own gear. His experience in the paper industry, combined with knowledge on engineering and electronics has led to some very dedicated products. In 2008, Marcel decided to focus on developing his own service equipment for the worldwide paper industry. Marcel is married, has three kids and is passionately restoring his semi-classic Volvo.
