Not many people will have the chance to sit down for breakfast with Mark Rutte, the prime minister of the Netherlands. Our colleague Jesse Plasman, Rompa’s director Far East, is among those lucky few – something he is, rightly, quite proud of. Jesse met Mark Rutte during a trade mission in China.
The breakfast meeting was also attended by other members of the Dutch government and representatives from several Dutch and international companies. On behalf of Rompa Group, Jesse gave a presentation about the development of our organisation, about vertical integration and about making plastic products smart by connecting them to the internet. Notably, Rompa is already able to apply various connectivity techniques in plastic products. For example, we are currently working on an industrial application that will indicate through LoRaWAN when a product is being used, a consumer product sending usage data to a mobile app via Bluetooth and another product that allows consumers to order new supplies via the LTE network from anywhere in the world with a single press of a button.
