Peter van der Staaij
As a child, Peter sometimes went to the workshop with his father at the weekend. Thus began his career at HCME. In 1990, during his school holidays, Peter started holiday work at the service workshop in Oosterhout. After his work at the service workshop, he started working on the mini excavators as a holiday job. But in 1995 he officially entered the service of the warehouse. He is currently still working at HCME, and since 2006 he is responsible for Mining Sales within Central; South; and Eastern Europe. As a result, he travels extensively to various work projects to generate sales in these markets together with HCME’s dealer network.
He notices that a lot has changed in construction and the world around it over the years. “This process will always continue, especially if you look at the effect that new emission legislation has on the design of the machines.” There are always challenges, Peter points out, but that is what makes his work so interesting. However, Peter likes it best when he can work with the machine itself, “the product as it is and as a Hitachi should be”
