Moving into Industry 4.0 with our Dutch international company? We are a natural match for solutions needed in the worldwide transport of our planet’s resources. The Dutch are among the most travelled people in the world and, although proud of our own identity, we always appreciate the many different approaches the world has to offer while learning from best practices. It makes us humble, pragmatic and accustomed to working with different cultures. No wonder our relations, pipe & tube solutions and traveling engineers are found in North- and South-America, Europe, the Middle-East, Africa, Southeast Asia and Russia.
If you have ever met a Dutch person before, you may be aware that we eat a simple peanut butter sandwich for lunch at fixed times, we avoid making unnecessary expenses, we are open-minded and we are willing to take a long hard look at ourselves every now and then. On top of that, the Selmers team is very competitive while incorporating a great amount of common sense in its approach. We love technical puzzles, even if it means getting the most out of minimal resources. Hence our motto ‘We are proud of what we deliver’.
The Dutch have fully embraced the forces of nature: we combat the sea and the cold with innovative solutions and endless resilience. How many people do you know who will instantly forget what they were doing when the opportunity arises to skate the nation’s traditional marathon on ice, even if it means losing one or two toes along the way? Making this very rare event possible by joining forces with countless parties and unfamiliar faces is almost as satisfying as actually crossing the finish line after 200 kilometers. It will change lives forever.
So why not get on the thin ice of automation and digitization with us? With a nod to a well-known Dutch saying ‘Don’t step on one night’s ice’ (meaning don’t take any stupid risks), our 50 years+ of industrial experience as a mechatronic solution provider translates into an enormous layer of ice. Thick enough to take away any doubt.
