Why Zeeland is the perfect location for Team Industrial Services
Team Industrial Services is an industrial service provider that evolved from the former De Schelde shipyard. Vlissingen is the head office for the Netherlands and the hub for the entire Eurasian region. From here, all engineering and manufacturing support takes place.
Good logistic connections
Mario Daane, Regional Manager Team Industrial Services in Vlissingen: "In Vlissingen, we are right in the middle of our customer clusters in Rotterdam and Antwerp. And we are near the ports of Vlissingen and Terneuzen. The logistic connections are good, so you always arrive at your customer on time.
We always try to be within a one hour driving distance of customers. This means that we have people at the location who know the customers and the local customs well and have the contacts to respond quickly at the customer’s location."

In the video below, Mario Daane talks about the collaboration with the business establishment department of Impuls Zeeland (formerly under the brand name Invest in Zeeland). And he talks about the advantages of doing business from within Zeeland.
"Zeeland is a beautiful, peaceful province, where you can relax on the beach in the summer. There are many loyal employees and it is a place where a 'gentlemen's agreement' can still be made."
Regional initiatives to support businesses
"In Zeeland there are several initiatives to support businesses. One of these is the Kenniswerf here in Vlissingen, of which we are a part. That means we have partnerships with other companies here. But we also have partnerships with Scalda (a community college) and the HZ University of Applied Sciences to offer work placements or graduation projects to their students. In addition, there is the KIC* in Terneuzen, of which we are a part, where companies and suppliers work together to find innovative solutions.
We are used to seeking collaboration. We don't believe in doing everything alone. It's better to find a good partner than to try to do it all yourself."
