Meilink designs and produces innovative packaging for the four 2019 Dutch Solar race participants
This year, from October 13 to 20, no less than four teams of Dutch TU/HBO students are competing in the biennial World Solar Challenge Event. The goal is to cover a distance of 3,021 km on solar energy as quickly as possible. The race goes straight through Australia, from Darwin to Adelaide. TU Delft has been the winner several times before; since 2005 TU Twente has been a formidable competitor. As of 2013 TU Eindhoven also competes - successfully - in the Cruiser class and this year a team of MBO, HBO and WO students from Groningen will take on the challenge!
Region Business: We let it collide a few times
'Just as a mother cherishes and protects her child with a blanket, we protect our customers' products during transport and handling,' explain Peter Geerts of IPS Technology and Dennis Groesbeek of Meilink. 'Packaging is never just packaging. It's about much more than some planks and nails. If a difficult solution then looks simple, we have done our job well.'

Meilink packages these capital-intensive production lines. In this way, they travel completely secure and arrive anywhere in the world. Without a single scratch.

Export packer Meilink opts for green electricity from Pure Energie
All branches of export packaging company Meilink have switched to 100% green electricity and gas from Pure Energie. Meilink is the market leader in the Benelux in the field of industrial packaging and has been working for years to make its organization more sustainable. By switching to green energy supplier Pure Energie, Meilink is saving more than 1.2 million kilos of CO2 per year. That is comparable to planting 60,000 trees!
Our packing concept on site at the industrial customer offers many advantages
For industrial machine manufacturers who want to ship their products to customers, Meilink applies a method proven in practice. Dennis Groesbeek, Director Meilink Schijndel: "These large machines are usually packed and shipped in parts. The core of our method is that the customer manages a small, compact packing department for outgoing logistics. At the moment that one or more parts of such a machine arrive internally, we ensure that the appropriate packaging is available correctly and completely, so exactly on time. The packer immediately does his job and applies the pre-processed packaging to suit."
