Interview with Remmelt Bosklopper
Remmelt Bosklopper, CEO, B&B Coating Techniek bv in Interview.
In your opinion, what are currently the biggest challenges for painting companies and job-shop coaters?
In my opinion, the biggest challenges for painting companies are improving the quality of the coating(system) and reducing overall costs.
From your standpoint, what are the best ways to optimize coating processes?
We see in our day-by-day practice that generally companies have little knowledge about coating-processes and the possibilities of improvement and optimization. As a result, the processes used -even at investing in new plants - are not always the best solutions for the specific situation. In order to fill in this lack of know-how, companies tend to lean heavily on their suppliers resulting in receiving subjective information.
What trends are emerging in your area of industrial painting technology?
Actual emerging trends are, as stated before, the need of improving quality and cost-reducing. At integrated coating-companies, we also see the need of integrating the coating-process in the total production-logistics, thus resulting in more-and-more complex coating-plants with extensive control systems.
What developments/solutions does your company offer for these trends?
We supply coating-companies with all the necessary know-how in order to achieve plants made-by-measure and adapted 100% at the individual needs and budget.
What significance does PaintExpo have for your company?
PaintExpo has a lot of significance for us. In fact, it is the only exhibition we participate in.
