We are deeply touched by the death of our highly valued colleague Frank Straathof. Frank was a man with a heart for the company and for his colleagues. He has left his own mark on many of our machines with his technical solutions and expertise. His commitment, collegiality, friendship, humor, and above all his personality have left a big empty space in our team.
Frank wanted a very personal, technical, touch to his funeral. When he was in the hospital, he designed the handles of his coffin. With a nod to his work. We have had the honor of manufacturing the handles for him. A special type plate, which we always attach to a machine, also had to be placed on his coffin. Together and in close consultation with Frank, his designs were mounted on. Heavy, strange, and beautiful all together. A very special and memorable way
for us to be of service to him for the last time.
Willy Wortel, Hammertime, we miss you man!
You have meant a lot to us.
We wish his wife Amanda and daughter Gwen
lots of strength in the coming period and in the future.
