Frank de Jonge
My career is dedicated to human and environmental well-being. Circular economy, CO2-reduction, renewable energy, energy efficiency are as important as resource-optimization and selecting the least harmful processes and material for health, life and well-being. Inkjet printing in industrial scale is my passion. Driving new applications in co-operation between end-user, substrate-manufacturer and printer integrator is the future of the printing market. Guiding and supporting the innovators in the printing industry is my speciality.
My career started at Olympia, where I started as junior product manager for one of the first Laserpointer launched to the European market. I had the opportunity to sell inks and toner from global leaders like Mitsubishi Chemicals, Toshiba, Hitachi and Sensient to a broad number of challenging and exiting digital printing applications from desktop to industrial scale. I managed development and production of inks for industrial printing applications ie. high speed single pass with water-based inks. The highly efficient dryers from adphos ensure reliable evaporation of water and solvents from any printing and coating application.
