Trade mission to Japan 2022

Our international sales manager represented Haelvoet during the Belgian trade mission to Japan.

Pieter Verkest, our international sales manager represented Haelvoet during the 2022 trade mission to Japan.

This event took place in the institute for medical practicesNipro.

Nipro is a Japanese medical equipment production company, with many subsidiaries and is very successful in the medical world.

Next to other presentations about trends in technological developments in Flanders (Belgium), Pieter showed how Haelvoet relax seats can provide a solution for the challenges of the aging population. Haelvoet's seating possibilities ensure a suitable seat for every caring environment. Our seats can be configurated with options and accessories.

Our goal is to create care furniture that empowers the patient. Besides that, ergonomics is crucial for the nursing staff. The relax chairs have easy maintenance with a focus on sustainability thanks to e.g. the 15-year warranty on construction.

In the closing speech of Flemish Minister-President Jan Jambon, he puts the knowledge and know-how of Haelvoet in the spotlight.
“…their [Haelvoet] knowledge and skills provide both the patient as the nursing staff a balance between design, quality and ergonomics", states Jan Jambon.

The Haelvoet team is grateful for the opportunity provided by Flanders Investment & Trade (FIT).
