On 1 October 2019 Cees Smit and Ron Verstelle passed on the directorship of Adelco Electronics to Michael Bhagwandien. Cees Smit and Ron Verstelle stay with the company as advisors on a part-time basis.
Michael Bhagwandien has already been working at Adelco as a commercial director since 2017. Michael held various management positions at Advantech from 1999 until his transfer to Adelco, a market leader in industrial computers and systems. So, he has got a lot of knowledge and experience, which now will be used in markets, in which Adelco strongly profits. In April 2003 Cees Smit and Ron Verstelle started Adelco and in more than 15 years the company has grown to a successful supplier for the manufacturing industry. Adelco operates mainly in the fields of Displays, Modules and Systems for Embedded Computing and Wireless (IOT) Modules.
In July 2018 Adelco was taken over by Batenburg Techniek N.V and is part of our branch Batenburg Industrial Components. This branch especially works for clients in the Manufacturing Industry, with the companies Batenburg Bevestigingstechniek, Batenburg Industriële Elektronica and Batenburg Mechatronica, and with Batenburg Energietechniek in the Energy and Rail Infrastructure.
In the past period both companies have walked a transition path in order to integrate all company processes. Cees Smit and Ron Verstelle have played an important role in this to obtain an optimum synergy. They remain involved in the organisation as advisors. The successful integration of Adelco into Batenburg results in new creativity and energy of our employees. This creates many new opportunities with smart solutions helping our clients to make the next step into the future.
