Van Velsen and Tyker enter into strategic cooperation
Van Velsen Reflection Lines in Bodegraven has received the first Robot Plotter. The Robot Plotter was developed by the Dutch company Tyker and will help Van Velsen in the further digitization of its work processes. The delivery of the Robot Plotter also marks the start of a multi-year strategic cooperation between Van Velsen and Tyker.
Van Velsen, founded in 1935 and market leader in the Netherlands, brings her years of experience in the work markings to this strategic collaboration. In turn, Tyker brings its innovative knowledge in the field of GPS-driven work process automation. The aim of the strategic cooperation is the further development of the digitization and automation of Van Velsen’s work processes and also the further development of the Robot Plotter.
Tijmen Bakker, founder of Tyker, and Eric Nieuwenhuis, product manager, personally brought the Robot Plotter to the head office in Bodegraven. A delegation from Van Velsen consisting of Emiel de Bruin, director, and Ronald van den Oord, innovation manager, immediately subjected the Robot Plotter to a test.
Van Velsen, a leader since 1935, is the market leader in road markings in the Netherlands. Van Velsen is a national player and operates from branches in Bodegraven, Drunen, Emmen and Sneek. Thanks to strategic partnerships such as this with Tyker, Van Velsen is strengthening its leading position today and also in the future.
Tyker, founded in 2008 as a spin-off from Wageningen University, focuses on the automation of work processes with mobile machines in road construction by making use of robotics, localization and control. Tyker’s products save labor and promote job satisfaction for users.
