H&T Industrial’s Newest Team Member

HTI are proud to introduce the newest member of the team, Jaap Pronk.

“It’s great to be back! Please let me introduce myself; my name is Jaap Pronk, I am married and have four children and three grandchildren. I was born in a small fishing village in The Netherlands. My preliminary education is Gymnasium B and I gained a Master’s degree in English and American Literature at the University of Leiden. In my spare-time, I like reading, hiking, cycling and traveling.

Since 1987 I have worked successfully in international sales as an independent sales agent. The main technologies I have sold are stamped parts, deep-drawn components, machined parts, sintered parts, cold formed parts, impact extrusions and assemblies. I worked for H&T Industrial (then known as Presspart) in the 1990s. I got in touch again in the middle of 2019 and we signed a new agency agreement at end of January 2020. I am thrilled to be back on board and I’m sure that together with Adrian, Sam and the rest of the excellent team, we will be successful in a very challenging environment.”

Of Jaap’s appointment, H&T Industrial’s Commercial Manager, Adrian said, “we are delighted to have Jaap re-join our team. He brings with him decades of valuable experience and knowledge of deep-drawn parts and the industries that require them.  Jaap is very well respected by everyone at H&T Industrial and he will be a formidable asset to our team. We’re very excited at what the future holds and the opportunity to grow our businesses together”.
