In Memory of Michiel Suurmond

On Tuesday 9 February 2016, our much-loved colleague Michiel Suurmond passed away at 40 years of age as a result of an acute illness. 

For over 15 years, Michiel was the driving force behind a variety of innovative solutions and projects at HortiMaX. After completing his degree at Wageningen University, Michiel began his career at HortiMaX as a product development engineer and then held various other positions. Among his many accomplishments, Michiel was responsible for implementing HortiMaX's test and quality policy. As our water technology product manager, Michiel played a major role in developing our innovations in this field in recent years.

Michiel was an extremely dedicated, professional, helpful and enthusiastic colleague. His passion and devotion to his work shone through in everything that he did.  We are very grateful for his contribution to our business and we will sorely miss him as a friend and colleague.

Our thoughts and sympathies go out to his immediate family and friends. We wish them much strength and courage in this difficult period.
