We proudly present to you our newly appointed Project Engineer, Sjoerd Pilkes.
After gaining his degree in Mechanical Engineering, Sjoerd started his career in 2009 at Advise Mechanical Solutions (AMS). At that time he was seconded to Machine Fabriek Wolthuis. There he did some engineering work and the last year of his career at AMS he was seconded to Twin Filter as Product Engineer. Sjoerd later took on another challenge namely engineering of waste separation systems based on air technology at Nihot after which he became the Sales Engineer at Nihot’s parent company BHS. Sjoerd’s job there was doing the layout engineering of complete waste separation lines based on process flow diagrams. Because Eric and Dirk knew Sjoerd and his excellent work from the past (Wolthuis and Twin Filter) they offered him a job at Dutch Filtration. For Sjoerd this was a nice opportunity, back to a company with short and direct communication lines within the whole organization. He accepted the job offer and started at Dutch Filtration in March and is already established in his job, he really enjoys it!
Sjoerd has a lot of hobbies like hunting, fishing, mountain biking and running. But he also likes it to spend his time with his family at home. He recently (Februari 24) became a dad again (he already has one child, now 2 years old).
