Growing up in the Netherlands near one of the largest manufacturing plants in Sapa, Floor Verhorst-Willems got to know Sapa. Now she is one of our sales managers.
I was raised near the large plant in Drunen so I sort of grew up with aluminium. Lots of parents of school friends worked at Sapa, so even in my younger days there was a connection.
Do you feel small working for such a large company?
When an organization recognizes your efforts and gives back in terms of training and new positions, you feel proud, humble and supported. This is how I feel with Sapa. I am driven to learn, I am ambitious and always try to be at my best.
Do you have a favorite project?
We had a contract with a global customer to produce extrusions for industrial computer housings. It was complex. Extensive fabrication, very tight tolerances and various surface treatments. A lot of effort went into this little box, but the more complex the challenge, the better it is for Sapa and the customer. If we can’t provide the knowledge locally, we know that we can turn to Sapa in Europe or elsewhere for support.
