MFN has decided to be the host for a Shot Peening Workshop and Trade Show in Europe every year. Therefore it is on the constant look for talents in this industry to strengthen its team within this region. MFN has known Marco Klijsen for many years already. He has written a number of articles for the magazine and participated at several MFN workshops as a guest speaker. Marco has not just a lot of experience in peening equipment and processes, but also speaks, besides his native language Dutch, fluent English and German. This will especially be an advantage for the coming Workshop & Trade Show in Dusseldorf (10th-12th of May, 2005), but also for the permanent MFN Training Centre in Altena, Germany.
