Flovac’s global management team gathered in Greece to congratulate Mr Willem Gooren on his retirement from the business he co-founded in 2005.
Mr Gooren has been involved with vacuum technology since 1981 and established Gooren BV in Holland in 1988. Mr Gooren has designed over 200 systems and has established 15 Flovac offices throughout Europe, the Middle East and Latin America. Mr Gooren is widely considered one of the experts in vacuum technology and was a member of the European committee that developed the first vacuum sewerage standard in the world, EN 1091, the European standard that is now used throughout the Middle East and Asia as well as in Europe.
Willem will still be involved in some ongoing projects in the Middle East as there are very few people with his years of expertise that can assist in some of the more challenging projects that are found there.
We all wish Willem and his wife Rosa and family all of our best wishes and our hearfelt thanks for all of his guidance over the years.
