An award for the 100th anniversary of Hoppenbrouwers Techniek
Henny de Haas: "It is a privilege to be allowed to hold the predicate Royal. I am very proud of that and grateful for it. The predicate is not only for me, but also for my predecessors Jan Beekmans, Wil Hoppenbrouwers and Theo Hoppenbrouwers a tribute and the icing on the cake during our 100-year anniversary. Together with them, but also with all our employees, we have built Hoppenbrouwers Techniek into a leading installation company that distinguishes itself in the sector. This award is the crowning glory of our work and confirms that we are committed to quality, sustainability, long-term thinking and not giving up. Our good name is confirmed in this way, which is a particularly good reward for our employees. After all, they do the good work! Of course, we celebrate this extensively, but then we continue with even better efforts."
