The wire and cable industry has the ability to weather economic challenges and innovate to continue its role as the backbone of the global energy transformation.

HEC-Holland has been adding extra value to the chain for over 15 years. Our cutting-edge slitting facility in Tilburg, the Netherlands, is dedicated to providing converting solutions tailored for the cable and wire industry. In order to keep high quality standards in our production facility, Kurt fulfilled a product training.

In our cutting-edge slitting facility, precision meets efficiency. Specializing in tailored solutions, we employ a make-to-order strategy to meet your unique requirements. Our adept team excels at slitting, cutting and winding cable tapes and foils.

Introducing Rick Seijler

introducing rick seijler
HEC-Holland is growing steadily and in February we were happy to welcome another new member to join us. Today we are introducing Rick Seijler. He will be our new Product Manager.

Introducing Rick Seijler – Who am I?

Hi everyone, I am Rick, 25 years old and currently living in Nijmegen. I have been living in Nijmegen for five years now. Before moving, I lived in a small village south of Nijmegen called Malden. Last December, I graduated as a master of Marketing Management at Tilburg University, which ended my time as a student. Before this master program, I studied Business Administration at the University of Applied Sciences in Nijmegen. I am an enthusiastic, driven and ambitious person who is motivated to achieve goals within a team. I believe this fits with the overall look of the company HEC-Holland, in which we work together to help our customers in the best way possible. Next to working, I love to spend time with family and friends, I like going to a restaurant, cinema or having a drink in the local pub. Furthermore, I like to play sports. My hobbies are going to the gym, playing basketball and playing golf. I used to play golf in national and international championships, in which I learned how to take sacrifices to achieve goals. This mentality is something that really defines me as a person and can help me during my time at HEC-Holland.

My role within the HEC-team

My role within HEC-Holland is ‘’Product Manager’’. I take care of both the marketing communication and our product portfolio. In these tasks I will work closely with our front office, back office and our sourcing offices. I already have some experience in marketing communication which can definitely help me starting up in this job. I just started a few months ago, and I already feel at home. My new colleagues have welcomed me very warmly and are really supportive on all my questions and challenges.

Thoughts for the future

Before I started working at HEC-Holland I was not very familiar with the cable industry. However, I am very eager to learn about the products and I want to know more about this market. Therefore, I believe I will learn fast and will make sure to be able to answer in-depth questions on our products as soon as possible. I am looking forward to all the challenges coming in the future and to get in touch with all our stakeholders! If any questions arise, please get in contact with our team! You can also find more information about Rick on his LinkedIn page.

Moving to our new office at Velperweg

After eight years working in our old office at the Eusebiusbuitensingel 3 in Arnhem, we have moved to a new location in Arnhem, at the Velperweg 82. HEC-Holland has grown rapidly in these past eight years. At the previous location there was no more space for all of us to work, which is why this is the perfect moment for us to move to a brand new and modern office. After a lot of (re)building activities and preparations the last few weeks, we have moved on the 29th of April and started working in our new “home” on the 2nd of May.

 

Our new office

Our new office is designed by an interior designer and will have a modern look and feel. The office has two state of the art meeting rooms, with the highest standard in Technology. Furthermore, HEC-Holland has invested in every way possible to improve the working environment of its employees and to stimulate their health. For example, we use new high quality office chairs and electronic desks who are adjustable in height. this way our employees are able to stand during work, which will benefit and stimulate their health.

This new office is especially perfect for inviting clients, suppliers, partners and other relations to come to Arnhem for a meeting. It is without saying that you are always welcome to visit us and have a formal or informal chat with a great cup of coffee.

Please contact us and make an appointment.

Introducing Nicole Brockötter

Nicole Brockotter

Introducing Nicole Brockötter – Who am I?

My name is Nicole Brockötter; I am 51 years old and live in a small town called Duiven, nearby Arnhem.

About 10 years ago, I started working at HEC-Holland as a Commercial Assistant. After a few years of experience in this position I was promoted to Account Manager. In this role, I am responsible for the Benelux and the German market.

Being raised as a german bi-lingual is a huge advantage in this field. It allows me to communicate with customers in their own language.

Genuine interest in others and humour go hand in hand with me. As a result, I like to make contact and get energy from maintaining and expanding my network. I believe I have an eye for detail, a passion for representing my job and like to share my knowledge with others.

It’s all about bringing real value to both parties and the best way to do this is by building strong and long-lasting partnerships through reliability and in-depth knowledge of markets, products and customers situation.

I see myself as an outgoing, open minded, spontaneous, and loyal person who likes to achieve goals and building relationships with colleagues and customers.

Besides work, I enjoy going out with my daughter, friends and family. I live together with my daughter and our animal friends Shiva, a French Bulldog, and my 2 cats Cooper and Schimanski. Furthermore, a glass of wine and a nice meal in a fancy restaurant won’t be turned down from my side.

Feel free to connect with me on LinkedIn, contact me by phone or e-mail.

Introducing Karin Dekker

Today we are introducing Karin Dekker. 

Hi, I live with my family in a small town not far from Arnhem, the Netherlands.

With a career spanning over two decades in a prominent Dutch financial institution, I made a pivotal decision to embark on a career break. During this time I dedicated my time to nurturing and caring for my two sons. As they have now grown into teenagers, a new chapter has begun. One filled with exciting business prospects. My new journey led me to HEC-Holland, where I have found an inspiring path to explore.

Within the dynamic HEC-Holland team, I have proudly taken the role of Sales Assistant. My role revolves around the meticulous operational management and follow-up of commercialized ventures. Even amidst the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, I am steadfast in my belief that my role will soon evolve into a more comprehensive and multifaceted one.

HEC-Holland, a beacon of innovation and entrepreneurship, has been a rewarding platform for personal and professional growth. The company’s ethos aligns seamlessly with my ambitions, and I am thrilled to be part of this forward-thinking organization. It’s in this setting that I’ve uncovered opportunities to hone my skills and broaden my horizons. Each day brings new challenges and learning experiences that keep me motivated and invigorated.

My future at HEC

In this era of uncertainty, I am confident that my tenure with HEC-Holland will continue to evolve, allowing me to contribute my best to the team’s success. With a firm foundation built upon years of financial expertise and a renewed sense of purpose, I look forward to the future with optimism and a spirit of exploration. The synergy between my past and present makes each day a step forward on my exciting journey with HEC-Holland.
