Siemon Welcomes 20 CEOs and Entrepreneurs from the Netherlands to Watertown
May 1, 2018. Watertown, CT — Siemon, a leading global network infrastructure specialist, recently welcomed a group of 20 CEOs and entrepreneurs from the Netherlands at Siemon headquarters and manufacturing facility in Watertown, Conn.
Rabobank, a Dutch multinational banking and financial services company, invited their most important corporate clients to take part in a trip to the United States to visit innovative and industry-leading companies. The purpose of the trip was to give their clients an opportunity to generate and exchange ideas with US companies with the possibility of connecting for future partnerships. The selected group of clients represent a wide range of sectors, including real estate, private equity/investors, automotive and manufacturing, and were represented by their respective owners and top-level management. MeetIn, a company headquartered in Utrecht, Netherlands that specializes in connecting entrepreneurs, managers and professionals worldwide, was brought in to help organize and guide the trip.
The six-day trip included a visit to Watertown to visit Siemon headquarters and manufacturing facility where the group was greeted by CK Siemon and given an overview of the company's history and its continued environmental sustainability efforts, including Siemon's 179% global carbon negativity and zero-landfill status. The group then toured Siemon's manufacturing facilities for insight into the company's vertically integrated manufacturing processes that turn out leading and innovative IT infrastructure solutions for data centers, local area networks (LANs), and Intelligent Buildings.
"The Siemon Company was very welcoming, and it was great to hear the history of the company told by a family member. Siemon continues to be an inspiring combination of tradition and innovation," said Emile Hajema, project manager at MeetIn. "We see many American companies that are behind Europe when it comes to sustainable production and environmental efforts, but I was glad to discover that Siemon is an exception."
