Robin van Meeuwen, CEO of Crestron EMEA says: "We are very pleased to appoint H.Essers because they show a true understanding for technically complex, multi-cultural logistics. This combined with the high expectations our customers have to receive their products in an efficient, correct and timely manner is crucial for the further growth of our company. We feel that the personal approach by H.Essers is of great importance to work side by side in our efforts to further expand Crestron EMEA and to warrant the internal changes to grow our business."

H.Essers is a specialist in redesigning traditional logistic processes in order for us to offer efficient and durable solutions within the complex and very dynamic world of high tech and communication.

This partnership fits perfectly well within the strategic development of our Technical Care segment where the added value in logistics support such as repair and reverse logistics are core activities. We are therefore thrilled that Crestron has chosen H.Essers as their partner and we are convinced that we can add added value to their service model."
