In conversation with Rik van Meirhaeghe and Ronald van Rijn
Rik: "I got to know Ronald during the last major project I did with Spie. That was a takeover of a fairly large party in the Netherlands, Ziut. I really liked the work, also because of the professionalism of JBR with which the project was run. Good, then we met a few more times and together we had the feeling that we could develop something together."
Ronald: "Yes, a small correction on how Rik and I know each other. We met through the OHM project. That was an installation company for a network company, for which we had the sales mandate. He probably forgot about it because it didn't work out. But the big impression was of course Ziut, where we sat opposite each other for almost half a year, in great discussions that ultimately led to the transaction."
Rik: "We started our collaboration a few months ago. What is striking is that we very quickly came to very good projects, where we can work together. This is partly due to our specific expertise in the installation and energy sectors. It also has to do with the fact that we like each other as teams and as people."
Ronald: "The big advantage is that we are not starting from scratch, but Rik has a full and mature team around him. He has chosen them with great care and we have a lot of confidence in them. Rik's knowledge of the energy and installation sector is very important to us and immediately shows in the enthusiasm with which customers receive us.
Ronald: "That was actually an old wish. We also tried it ourselves once, but it wasn't particularly successful. And what I learned from that is that the combination of Rik's human qualities and professional content as well as his sector knowledge of energy and installation."
