The regional winners of the Metal Construction Association Smart People Award have been announced. The jury, headed by Doekle Terpstra, has reviewed all entries and appointed Octatube as the winner of Zuid-Holland. All regional winners will continue to the national award on the 5th of November.

“The winners are all excellent examples of small and medium enterprises who understand the importance of human resources for a company that is successful both now and in the future. On the 5th of November it is going to be an exciting national awarding ceremony”, says Doekle Terpstra. Narrowing down the finalists and choosing the regional award winners proved to be a difficult decision, which is underlined by the fact that two winners were appointed in the East region.

The Royal Metal Construction Association yearly provides an award for one of its members that positively distinguishes itself. This year the association presented the Smart People Award for companies who utilize new technical developments and who rely heavily on their personnel’s dedication and commitment.
Professional employees are an indispensable link in the transition towards a future in which small and medium enterprises in the metal industry employ the newest and smartest technologies while accelerate their manufacturing processes. It comes down to the human capital to employ these latest technologies. This requires not only specialist knowledge, but also a flexible work attitude that constantly goes beyond state of the art technologies by means of creativity and education. At the same time these professionals should be able to work longer, healthier and with satisfaction.

The Royal Metal Construction Association has 13.000 members which makes it the largest entrepreneurs network for small and medium enterprises in the metal industry. The members have a combines turnover of 22 billion Euros and employ 150.000 people.
