Andries Hofman appointed new CEO of Adimec Eindhoven, The Netherlands (February 2008).   

Adimec is proud to announce Andries Hofman recently named Chief Executive Officer of Adimec Holding BV. Adimec is a leading supplier of high-performance digital cameras and camera lens assemblies for use in three market segments: machine vision, medical imaging, and defense imaging. Andries’s vision involves building Adimec’s success with current and future product solutions to increase our customers’ competitiveness among various industries. He is committed to helping attain our financial and operational goals. 

After his study of mechanical engineering at the Technical University of Delft with a specialization in industrial organizations, Andries started his career at Fokker in the (aero)space industry. In this company the main focus for him was production management of space and aerospace products. After this experience, Andries was looking for something completely different in a smaller company and found this with Nefit Fasto, a producer of heater systems. He became responsible for the logistics and learned that the discipline of execution is vital in these types of processes. Prior to joining Adimec, Andries was the Senior Director Program Manager at ASML, one of the biggest manufacturers of semiconductor equipment in the world. Andries fulfilled various positions within ASML, from process lab management to factory management to program management. In these positions regular contacts with suppliers and customers were an integral part of his responsibilities.

“We are very pleased to have Andries join our team as the CEO of Adimec,” said Just Smit, co-founder and Senior Management, Adimec Group Worldwide.  “Andries is an experienced and focused leader who is dedicated to Adimec’s continued success.  He has a direct approach that compliments our company culture with the passion to drive growth.  With his extensive background and determination, he will help guide our global organization into a very exciting, prosperous future.

”My choice for Adimec was not that difficult: a great company with skillful and enthusiastic colleagues, great products and the potential to be one of the dominant players in the market,” Hofman said.  “Above all, Adimec is small and agile enough to hunt for market opportunities with a culture of honesty, transparency, and a winning argument, but also with a challenge to get the organization to the next level of professionalism.” 

Hofman took up his new duties February 1, 2008 with a clear vision, a solid team, and the excitement of thriving growth for the future.
