Retirement for mechanical engineer Kees van Scheppingen

After working for almost 26 years at our studio, Kees van Scheppingen recently retired. He has been an exceptional and talented colleague. We will miss his mechanical engineering skills and his remarkable personality within our team.

He is a classical engineer with a passion for mechanical strength calculations and a fondness for gear wheels and electronics. Kees enjoys resolving complex mechanical issues, which led to significant innovations for our clients. Often ‘grumbling’ a bit, he is most friendly, always ready to assist others. Taking our juniors by the hand, Kees enthusiastically shared his vast experience and knowledge. He has been a regular guest at our Thursday afternoon drinks and joined many of our ski-trips.

Our founder Jeroen Verbrugge: “Kees and I first met at Vicon Landbouwwerktuigen. We mainly worked together on the development of the ‘Prolion’ milking robot. Never lost touch since then, we became colleagues again at our studio. According to Kees, our creatives always did a lot of ‘wishful’ sketching. He made sure to turn them into realistic designs. It was an honor, privilege, and great pleasure to work with Kees!”

We hope that you’ll find your way at home in the years to come. Enjoy spending more time with your children and grand-children and ‘connect’ with music. It’s not a rigid ‘Kexit,’ says Kees and happy to help us out when needed. For the time to come, we’ll have ‘Kees’ consultation hours’ at our studio. Though not a definite goodbye, we had a digital retirement-party yesterday, January 28th. Many thanks, Kees, for 26 great years together. We keep in touch!
