New president at NEVIB 01 April 2024

NEVIB, the trade association representing Dutch fastener importers, has celebrated its 10th anniversary with the announcement of a new president – Arnoud Booij, director and owner of ASF Fischer B.V.

The NEVIB association was created 10 years ago by a group of visionary Dutch fastener importers, with the intention of setting up a body to jointly address the many challenges facing the industry. One founding member was former president Robert Klaassen, who was a driving force behind the association’s rise to become the strong organisation it is today. Thanks to his efforts, NEVIB is now the official trade association for the Dutch import trade in fasteners, recognised by governments, the European industry association, EFDA, and all other stakeholders. 

Board changes at NEVIB, also announced at the anniversary meeting, include Bart Veldhuizen (from Hoenderdaal) joining the board of directors as a new member, with Vincent van Dijk remaining NEVIB’s secretary general.
