Ralph Hofman Sales Engineers

Ralph Hofman

Sales Engineer

Started on the shop floor in 1998 and was involved in many shop and site projects before taking on the role of sales engineer. Ralph knows the products and projects inside out, which allows him to quickly identify both potential improvements as well as pitfalls when requests come in. Ralph loves a challenge and hates missing deadlines, which explains why he combines taking part in obstacle runs with watching Formula 1 when he’s not at work.
