Motion control specialist DMS Holland has announced that Marcel Vrijsen and Rens van Hal have recently joined the company.

The manufacturer of the AntiRoll and MagnusMaster says the new recruits strengthen its position to meet the increasing market demand for DMS systems.

Following numerous projects related to special coating solutions at major shipyards for both new yachts and refits, Vrijsen (31) took the decision to fully focus on his passion for the yacht-building industry. He brings with him communication skills and extensive experience in business planning, project management and product presentation.

Rens van Hal (28) is an all-round technician who has a great affinity with technology. DMS Holland says his appointment to the team is set to significantly strengthen the company’s engineering capabilities.

During an 8-year long military career van Hal gained a wide range of technical expertise and experience related to complex technical systems.

Throughout his time in the Dutch Royal Navy his technical work focussed on the Lynx helicopter and later, when he went on to work for the Dutch Royal Airforce, it was cantered around modifying and performing preventive and corrective maintenance on the electrical, navigational and flight guidance systems of the Chinook helicopter.

These two latest appointments to the team follow the addition of Ankie Popken who joined DMS Holland as office manager last year.

“We are delighted to welcome Marcel, Rens and Ankie to the team. More hands on deck providing more service on board for our customers. Hopefully, just as Ankie has done already, Marcel and Rens will take to us “like a fish to water” and we look forward to the new team taking DMS Holland full speed ahead,” comments Patrick Noor, commercial director and co-owner.

In addition, the Dutch manufacturer has revealed that in just six months over 30 MagnusMaster systems, it’s latest product launch, have already been delivered to boat owners.

The majority of boats (up to 30m) are equipped with two systems. Larger yachts, which have a greater initial stability, are equipped with four systems.
