NETHERLANDS: Martin Lenz, development engineer at Trox GmbH, has been elected chairman of Eurovent’s air handling unit product group.
The announcement during the recent meeting in Zoetermeer, Netherlands, also saw Andy Bijmans, manager development and support at Systemair BV, elected vice-chairman.
The two take on their positions from Kees van Haperen of Rosenberg, Netherlands, and Gunnar Berg of Swegon, Sweden. Van Haperen had been leading the Group since 2002. Both of them had been active participants since the 1990s and now decided to pass their chairmanship on to a new generation.
The Eurovent air handling units product group is the largest such group in its product area worldwide, with more than 100 manufacturer members.
Outgoing chairman Kees van Haperen told meeting participants: “Over the years, we have achieved a lot and drafted widely applied standards and recommendations. Both Gunnar and myself are going to actively continue contributing to the Eurovent product group, now with an increased focus on life-cycle costs.”
Promising to do his utmost to further develop the product group, new chairman Martin Lenz said: With the increasing number of tasks and legal requirements ahead, everyone’s support and commitment will be of high importance. Our aim is to involve everyone as much as possible, including the many new members to our network.”
