Daan Sterkenburg is one of our project engineers who, together with an enthusiastic team of engineers, translate customer preferences into detailed 3D designs. After studying mechanical engineering, he spent a few years in the coating industry, where he worked as a mechanical engineer in an R&D department. However, he wanted to further develop his skills, and decided to join Gpi De Gouwe in 2019.
At Gpi, Daan is responsible for designing stainless steel tanks and processing equipment in accordance with the customer’s preferences. His main activities are not restricted to just drawing work and calculations. He also serves a temporary point of contact for customers once the design process for tanks or processing lines has started; is responsible for procuring components (incl. engines); compiles work drawings for specific components which are produced in-house; and closely monitors the identified deadlines. “I enjoy my job so much because my activities vary greatly and I like the challenge of working with customers to create the best solutions” explains our friendly and helpful colleague. However, he is honest enough to admit that it can also be a hectic job at times, although this is easily outweighed by positive aspects of his job.
