New management for Nijkerk Electronics

From the 1st of September Vincent Bekhuis and Alain Huysmans will take over the daily management of Nijkerk Electronics from Ed Djie. After 19 years at Nijkerk Electronics and more than 40 years in the electronics industry, Ed Djie is about to start the next phase in his life. With Vincent and Alain, the continuity of Nijkerk Electronics is guaranteed. Both have been working at Nijkerk Electronics for more than 20 years and have a technical background. In recent years they have already been closely involved in the daily management and from the 1st of September they will manage the teams in the Netherlands and Belgium. The focus on complete solutions in the field of display technology and passive power components remains unchanged.

Complete range of display and touchscreens

Vincent Bekhuis has been responsible for display technologies at Nijkerk Electronics since 2008. Vincent: “From 2008 it was my goal to allow the display and touchscreen segment within Nijkerk Electronics to grow strongly. At the time, the product range was limited and with it the number of customers for displays and touchscreens. I strongly believe that unburdening our customers is an important aspect, so I looked for more manufacturers for compatible display and touchscreen products. We now sell all types of display and touchscreen techniques, we have the right products for every application. This means we are perfectly capable of unburdening our customers in both technical and logistical terms. Our goal is to steadily grow this segment.”

Combination of components for (high) power applications

Alain Huysmans has been responsible for passive power components as product manager since 2007 and still sees many opportunities in this segment. Alain: “Developments such as sustainable energy, energy storage and electric transport have resulted in an enormous increase in demand for passive power components in recent years. This demand will certainly not decrease in the coming years. New applications at our customers require new, innovative products from our suppliers. As one of the few distributors specialized in (high) power components, we can offer a combination of products that are needed in these new applications. Think of (super) capacitors, contactors, fuses and busbars. We have a lot of technical knowledge, not just about one specific part, but about the entire application. We notice that customers really appreciate this technical insight.”

Ready for challenge

Both Vincent and Alain are excited about this new challenge, although they will certainly miss the collaboration with Ed Djie. Vincent: “Almost from my start at Nijkerk Electronics I’ve worked with Ed and I always enjoyed that. I have learned a lot from this collaboration and will benefit greatly from it in the years to come. Alain adds: “Ed has meant a lot to Nijkerk Electronics in 19 years. He has ensured that Nijkerk Electronics is still a stable and innovative player in a rapidly changing market. It is our job to continue this!”
