Mélissa Smalbrugge Office Management & Sales Support

My name is Mélissa Smalbrugge. I work at Membrane Systems Europe B.V. since the 1st of April 2014. My daily tasks consist on one hand out of administrative duties and accounting. You can think of entering data into our accounting system (purchasing, banking, etc.) and billing. Replenishing stationery and other things is part of my daily tasks as well. Since I am responsible for incoming telephone calls, furthermore, I am the first contact for customers. On the other hand, I offer support on the commercial area. This means I calculate the price of our covering systems, and subsequently process these into a suitable offer for our (potential) customer.

Ing. R. M. (Rick) Bos Project Engineer

My name is Rick Bos and I am working at Membrane Systems Europe B.V. since the 7th of July 2014. Before I came working here, I studied “Business Engineering” at Saxion University of Applied Sciences in Enschede. At Saxion, I was being trained to be a process specialist, focussing on the processes in a technical environment. By successfully following this study, I am perfectly able to translate customer requirements into the appropriate products/services. As a Project Engineer at MSE, that is exactly what I do. After a project has been ordered by a customer, my duty starts. I make sure the entire project is being tailored exactly to the needs of the customer and the situation on site. When we know all parameters, the production process starts. Due to our good external and internal communication, it is completely known how our products need to be made and we can bear much concern for the quality. After production, I make sure all products are being delivered on site, at the right time and at the right place. Then, I transfer all projects to our skilled installation team.

Kai Oosterheert Project Manager

My Name is Kai Oosterheert and I started working at Membrane Systems Europe B.V. since the 8th of January 2018. I have always been very interested in technical challenges, this is why I studied Mechanical Engineering. At Membrane Systems Europe B.V., I will be working as a Project Manager. Not only will I be working on projects of our clients, but also on innovation projects within Membranes Systems Europe and on the products itself. In order to do this, I believe it is important to have a very broad interest in the complete market and all the technical solutions that are included in the market. I will make sure to get as close to our clients, the market and the products as I can to make sure to keep Membrane Systems Europe at the top of the market when it comes down to innovation and product development. Another part of my job will be creating the necessary documentation and drawings, so the complete process from production to installation will be as smooth as possible.

Also as a Frenchman, I find it a real pleasure to collaborate with this nice and dynamic Dutch team.
