KEES KOOIJ AWARD FOR IBS MANAGING DIRECTOR HENNY SPAAN

Henny Spaan, Managing Director of IBS Precision Engineering, has been awarded the Kees Kooij award at the Mikrocentrum end of year meeting that took place on December 16, 2015. Dr Spaan has been awarded because of his exceptional contributions to Mikrocentrum and the Precision Fair.

Henny Spaan has been one of the initiators of the Precision Fair, which was organized this year for the 15th time. Along with several other leading technologists he gathered a group of companies in 2000 resulting in the first edition of the fair on October 10 & 11, 2001. Meanwhile the Precision Fair has become one of the biggest international events on precision technology.

During the last edition of the Precision Fair, he launched the new Advanced Thermal Control Consortium, a collaboration between companies and research institutes focusing on research in the field of advanced thermal control of high precision systems.
